Recently, tissue engineers have turned to developmental biology to try and improve the repair of tendons and ligaments . The premise is that understanding normal growth and development of tendons and ligaments might facilitate in later repair. Understanding these similarities in extracellular matrix gene expression and growth factor expression might allow tissue engineers to develop treatments to augment adult tendon and ligament healing.
