Collagen, being the main constituent of the mammalian extra cellular matrix, is an ideal candidate as a biomaterial for regenerative medicine applications. In this chapter, besides a brief introduction about key elements guiding tissue regeneration, recent advances in collagen-based biomaterials will be outlined. Collagen properties may be improved when used in combination with other materials: collagen-inorganic blends, collagen materials in combination with natural (protein and carbohydrates) or synthetic polymers will be considered.

Abstract

Collagen, being the main constituent of the mammalian extra cellular matrix, is an ideal candidate as a biomaterial for regenerative medicine applications. In this chapter, besides a brief introduction about key elements guiding tissue regeneration, recent advances in collagen-based biomaterials will be outlined. Collagen properties may be improved when used in combination with other materials: collagen-inorganic blends, collagen materials in combination with natural (protein and carbohydrates) or synthetic polymers will be considered.
