Thoroughly updated and expanded, the second edition of this comprehensive textbook focuses on various aspects of events which occur at the tissue-biomaterial interface integrating current physiological knowledge of cell/tissue behavior and recent materials science/engineering developments in the field of biomaterials. An Introduction to Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions, Second Edition concentrates on fundamental concepts of wound healing process and interactions between the human body and implanted biomaterials or devices. New to this edition are the expanded and detailed coverage of cell-biomaterial interactions and a section specifically addressing fundamental aspects of tissue engineering. Cell biology materials are carefully discussed throughout, presenting topics like cell receptors and the cytoskeleton, extracellular matrix production, and remodelling. Supplementary reading and activity suggestions are expanded. An Introduction to Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions, Second Edition is accessible to students with minimal chemistry, biology, and advanced math knowledge. It is an invaluable resource for undergraduate students in biomedical engineering, as well as premedical students and engineering graduate students. Praise for the First Edition: "...well illustrated with a glossary, end-chapter summaries, and references...materials, scientists, medical device designers and manufacturers, corrosion researchers and practitioners, surgeons, and clinicians will profit from reading this book." CORROSION "...a concise, topical, and not overly technical hardbound...the strengths of this book are its crisp information and condensed summaries. The jewels of this book are the diagrams and tables." Annals of Biomedical Engineering "...delivers precisely what the authors intended...excellent book...great introduction...nicely complements existing texts..." Advanced Materials
