Morrison, W.A., Messina, A., Lokmic, Z., Idrizi, R., Findlay, M., Stillaert, F., Ramakrishnan, A., Hofer, S.O.P., Tanaka, Y., Thompson, E.W., & Mitchell, G.M. (2004) The role of vascularization in 3-D tissue engineering. In Transactions : 7th World Biomaterials Congress, 17 - 21 May 2004, Sydney, NSW.


The role of vascularization in 3-D tissue engineering was studied. Mouse fat, angiogenic growth factors, adult human stem cells and fat tissue have been inserted and subsequent tissue growth was monitored. Human fat grafts or human lipoaspirates in SCID mouse chambers induced mouse fat generation at 6 weeks. Tissue engineering models utilizing intrinsic vascularization have major advantages including rapid and appropriate vascularization of new tissues.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
