Description: Over the last two decades, significant progresses have been made by transplantation of “ex vivo” expanded autologous stem/progenitor cells, mostly associated with biomaterials, for the repair of chronic or difficult-to-heal tissue lesions and defects caused by disease, trauma, or tumor surgery. Our lab was among the pioneers in applying a tissue engineering approach for repairing and reconstructing human epithelia in burned patients (De Luca et al., 1989), as well as urethra for congenital malformations (Romagnoli et al., 1990), corneal epithelium in eye chemical burns (Pellegrini et al., 1997), and long-bone defects in trauma outcome (Quarto et al., 2001). However, despite these successes, we must acknowledge that major constraints exist for the broad application of this approach.
