CELL SHEET TISSUE ENGINEERING

Cell sheets are created using polymer coated temperature responsive culture dishes, where minor fluctuations in temperature allow the cells to be detached as a confluent sheet that maintains the natural extracellular matrix (ECM), cell-cell junctions, and surface proteins, which are broken or damaged during traditional enzymatic detachment methods. Retention of the ECM allows the cell sheet to instantly adhere when transplanted, ensuring localization and retention of cells at the transplantation site and negates the need for a scaffold. This cell sheet engineering therapy can be applied to treat a wide range of diseases and has shown clinical success in regenerating a variety of tissues in vivo.
