Vascular Tissue Engineering: Building Perfusable Vasculature for Implantation

Curr Opin Chem Eng 3:68-74

Publication Date: February 7, 2014

Product Type: iCell Endothelial Cells


A review article describing the state of the art for vascular biology in generating perfusable tissues for therapeutic applications. The potential for iPSC-derived endothelial cells (ECs) in such applications is reported.


iCell Endothelial Cells are currently commercially available as iCell Endothelial Cells (Cellular Dynamics International). As such, human iPSCs offer the advantages of providing a possibly unlimited number of autologous ECs to vascularize tissue engineered constructs for implantation.
