|Abstract||Using a tissue construct generated by cells in a scaffold in reconstructive surgery, as a substitute for autografts, is still challenging. Routine methods of incorporating cells into scaffolds are either passive, i.e. by gravity, or forced, as in a bioreactor. Extensive use of these methods is obstructed by tissue formation around the scaffold, hindrance in cell penetration and time required for cell coverage within the scaffold. In this study, human osteoblast cells as cell sheet structures were seeded to porous and dense hydroxyapatite with the hypothesis that preservation of native extracellular structures and cell-cell contacts would facilitate the cellularization process. Cellularization was assessed by fluorescence, confocal and scanning electron microscopy at intervals of 1 h, 2 days and 7 days. Cell patches with intact cell-cell and cell-extra cellular matrix contact attached and adhered on a scaffold within 1 h. The patches formed a monolayer within 2 days and complete cellularization of the scaffold was attained in 7 days. Cell viability, proliferation and function were assessed to understand the application of cell patch transfer to bone substitute. This novel approach for application in bone tissue engineering was successful in uniform distribution of intact osteoblast cell sheet structures on to bone substitute materials for rapid and complete cellularization without altering material characteristics.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and 9 other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
