Efficacy of a Novel Through-Thickness Perfusion Bioreactor to Create Scaffold-Free Tissue Engineered Cartilage

Gilbert, Eric Andrew 14 December 2013 (has links)
Articular cartilage is an avascular, aneural tissue that covers the ends of diarthroidal joints. Once damaged by disease or injury, cartilage lacks the ability to self-repair. Generating tissue engineered cartilage is an exciting field that may provide a possible solution to this problem. The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of a through-thickness perfusion bioreactor to generate scaffoldree tissue engineered cartilage. The results of the study show that allowing long-term static culture to cell constructs before perfusion increases the efficacy of the bioreactor. Immediate perfusion of cell constructs in the bioreactor is shown to decrease the efficacy to produce scaffoldree constructs with desirable biomechanical and biochemical properties. The results of the study also show possible options in future works that could increase the efficacy of the bioreactor.
