The presentations in this volume, resulting from the 2nd International Conference on Bioartificial Organs, are divided almost equally among medical practitioners and surgeons, materials scientists and engineers; presenters came from industry, academia and governmental organizations. Sections are dedicated to specific diseases and organ replacements, such as the bioartificial pancreas (diabetes). Clinical trials on the bioartificial liver and skin are presented as are new developments in the craniofacial and cartilage areas. There is discussion on tissue sourcing (xeno-and allografts) as well as on the suitability of the proposed xenotransplantation for immunoisolation devices. Advances in genetically modified cells are also highlighted. Sessions on the molecular aspects of rejection prevention, on new biomaterials, and on processing complement the plenary medical- and technology-oriented themes. A panel discussion on scale-up and commercial implementation rounds out the volume.
