Biomimetic and Collagen-based Biomaterials for Biomedical Applications

Collagen, being the main constituent of the mammalian extra cellular matrix, is an ideal candidate as a biomaterial for regenerative medicine applications. In this chapter, besides a brief introduction about key elements guiding tissue regeneration, recent advances in collagen-based biomaterials will be outlined. Collagen properties may be improved when used in combination with other materials: collagen–inorganic blends, collagen materials in combination with natural (protein and carbohydrates) or synthetic polymers will be considered.
