Abstract Text

The restoration of osteochondral defects presents great challenges that have not been fully solved by the current therapies. Therefore, this field continues to expand, bridging the gap between palliative care and defects reconstruction. In the last few years, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have been offering advanced strategies and some of which have successfully reached clinical application and the market. Beyond the origin and source of cells, the development of culture conditions remains an important step to further clinical applications. Several approaches have been focused on good manufacturing practice (GMP) conditions. The aim is the creation of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs). The up-to-date state of the culture protocols for osteochondral tissue engineering with respect to different cells, growth factors, and biomaterial scaffolds, as well as the strategies employed in clinical trials for the restoration and repair of osteochondral defects, will be the focus of this book chapter.
