Adipose tissue induction in vivo
Stillaert, F.B.J.L., Blondeel, P., Hamdi, M., Abberton, K., Thompson, E.W., & Morrison, W.A. (2007) Adipose tissue induction in vivo. Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology : Tissue Engineering, 585, pp. 403-412.
Engineering adipogenic tissue in vivo requires the concomitant induction of angiogenesis to generate a stable long-term three-dimensional construct. Histiocon-ductive tissue engineering strategies have been used. The disadvantage of using biodegradable scaffolds is a delayed angiogenic induction resulting in ischemic necrosis of the central cell population in the scaffold. We evaluated an histioinductive approach for adipose tissue engineering by combining essential key components for adipogenic induction:
(1) a precursor cell source;
(2) a vascular pedicle;
(3) a supportive matrix, and;
(4) a chamber to preserve space for the new tissue to develop.
We observed concomitant adipogenic and angiogenic induction after 6 weeks in three-dimensional adipose tissue constructs.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
