Furthermore, the engineered t sheets expressed high levels of ciated growth factors in vitro. After the engineered sheets were transplanted to the subcutaneous space of mice, the construct developed into vascularized subcutaneous liver tissues with higher hepatic function than tissues from hepatocyte-only sheets. To fabricate highly functional 3D hepatic tissues in vitro, our group has improved the cell sheet stratification technology. PubMedGoogle Scholar.

Modifications in the methodology to manipulate the donor hepatocytes in a more simple and timely manner prior to transplantation would enhance the therapeutic efficacy of this procedure. Conventional approach for vector-mediated gene transduction to the isolated hepatocytes has been performed under primary culture conditions that routinely require several days to complete.

Cell-based approaches, including hepatocyte transplantation and tissue-engineered livers, offer promising alternatives and are expected to help support patients with liver diseases until liver transplantation or recovery via regeneration of the damaged liver

Cell-based approaches, including hepatocyte transplantation and tissue-engineered livers, offer promising alternatives and are expected to help support patients with liver diseases until liver transplantation or recovery via regeneration of the damaged liver.

Hepatocyte Transplantation : Tissue Engineering. Hepatocyte transplantation has thus been studied to develop an alternative therapeutic method for patients with various liver diseases. In experimental studies using rodents, transplanted hepatocytes survive and function in ectopic sites for a long period of time.

Hepatocyte transplantation and auxiliary liver transplantation prevented symptoms of scurvy and increased plasma and tissue AsA levels and body weight ratios. AsA levels in recipients of 20% liver grafts were comparable to normal control animals. Hepatocytes transplanted in polymeric matrices are able to compensate for liver-based metabolic deficiencies. Hepatocyte transplantation improves plasma AsA levels in AsA-deficient recipients. However, auxiliary liver grafts are superior to hepatocyte grafts in improving metabolic parameters

Tissue engineering is the use of a combination of cells, engineering, and materials methods, and suitable biochemical and physicochemical factors to improve or replace biological tissues. Tissue engineering involves the use of a tissue scaffold for the formation of new viable tissue for a medical purpose. While it was once categorized as a sub-field of biomaterials, having grown in scope and importance it can be considered as a field in its own.

The rapidly increasing frequency of organ transplantation is causing a severe shortage of donor organs. Hepatocyte transplantation has thus been studied to develop an alternative therapeutic method for patients with various liver diseases. In experimental studies using rodents, transplanted hepatocytes survive and function in ectopic sites for a long period of time. Recent advances in molecular biology and tissue engineering enable us to manipulate isolated hepatocytes before transplantation. Before clinical application of this new therapeutic method, there are many issues to be resolved such as determining an optimal location for transplantation, rapid proliferation of transplanted hepatocytes, transplantation in large animals, immunological reactions and long-term gene expression. In this book, authorities on hepatocyte transplantation from all over the world describe progress in this field and discuss the unsolved problems. For researchers and clinicians interested in the liver, this book will be the definitive resource on hepatocyte transplantation.
