Abstract

Researches investigate new types of scaffolds for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications to support cell proliferation and growth as well as tissue repair and regeneration. Although, there are several types of polymeric materials and various kinds of preparation techniques are already known today, there is still no consensus on the answer of the question “what is the best scaffold for tissue repair and regeneration?”. Cryogels which is a kind of hydrogels and cryogel preparation technique, cryogelation, are rather new for tissue engineering applications. Here in this study, functional polysaccharides blended collagen cryogels were prepared and characterized by chemical, structural and biological evaluations. Results show that these collagen cryogels with their polysaccharides functional components can be a good candidate scaffold for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications.
