Tissue engineering is a new field of biomedical science which is based on the principles of biology and engineering for the development of functional substitutes for tissues and organs.1 The term “tissue engineering” was introduced in medicine in 1987 with a keypoint given by Dr. Joseph Vacanti and Dr. Robert Langer in tissue engineering, describing it as the new technology and referring it as the beginning of new biomedical discipline.2 Currently, there is tremendous expansion of tissue engineering in form of cells, scaffolds, growth factors, controlled release carriers, engineering of biomaterials and in other different areas of basic and applied research.3
