Breakthrough for bone regeneration via double-cell-layered tissue engineering technique

(Tokyo Medical and Dental University) Tokyo Medical and Dental University researchers developed a technique for attaching two distinct layers of cells on top of each other on an amnion-based scaffold. When osteoblasts and mesenchymal stem cells were used to form the layers, the cell constructs more effectively promoted bone regeneration after implantation onto skull defects in mice, compared with their single-cell-layer equivalents.
