Bioactive Tissue Paper Potential in Regenerative Medicine

Bioprinting is being explored for the production of synthetic tissues and even entire organs that can be used for transplantation. It uses cells filled in cartridges, referred to as bioink, which can be printed using 3D printers resulting in an output of 3D tissues. Bioactive tissue paper developed from bovine or porcine organs and could be useful for several purposes including regenerative medicine and drug discovery. The research was published in Advanced Functional Materials.
