The Research about Biological Materials and Exercise-Induced Articular Cartilage Injury


Article Preview

The composite scaffold has well biocompatibility and biodegradability, and it is assembled by a certain fraction ratio and mode, which is a biodegradable stent and gains many applications at present time in cartilage tissue engineering. The composite scaffold has good biocompatibility, toughness, porosity and mechanical strength. The preparation of composite scaffold is not only about the composite of biological materials with the same kind, but also about the different materials. Due to the composite scaffold, the biological materials have the complementarity, and meet the needs of ideal biomaterial scaffolds to some extent, which has positive implications on the repair of articular cartilage in exercise training.
