Use of 3-dimensional environments to engineer osseous-like tissue
We have previously reported enhanced aggregate formation and accelerated mineralization of human mesenchymal preosteoblastic cells (HEPM) when cultured without scaffolds in 3D-rotary wall vessel chambers. From those studies we hypothesized that, rotary wall vessel environments could be used to engineer osseous tissue. Thus, HEPM preosteoblastic cells were cultured in rotary wall vessels for up to 7 days. Progression of...
