Regenerative medicine is based on stem cells, which have the ability to differentiate into special type of body cells, and hence, they were proven clinically successful in organ transplantation, as well as in the functional treatment of several diseases. Nanotechnology, which is the science depending on particles of dimensions below 1 micrometer has gained considerable interest in the field of regenerative medicine, especially when nanoparticles are constructed from biodegradable organic and inorganic biomaterials.
