Soft tissue implants applications involve engineering principles, the performance of an implanted device inside the host which mainly depends upon both the type of materials used and the fabricated design of the device or implant. The initial selection of material should be based on sound materials engineering practice as well as requirements. The final material Selection judgment on the suitability of a material depends upon in-vivo clinical performance observation of the implant for specific time duration. The requirement of in-vivo observation represents major problems in the selection of appropriate materials for use inside human body, the performance of an implant which may depend on the fabrication design rather than the materials, skill of the surgeons and the prior condition of patients.

Cell therapy and Gene therapy are interrelated biomedical research with the effects of repairing   genetic diseases direct cause in the DNA or cellular population. These powerful strategies are also being noticed on specific genes and cell sub-populations modulation in acquired diseases in order to re-establish the normal equilibrium condition of cell. In many rare chronic diseases, gene and cell therapy are combined in the development of promising therapies in promoting better life. Cell and gene therapy provide reagents, concepts, and techniques that are elucidating the accurate points of gene regulation, stem cell lineage, cell-cell interactions, feedback loops, cell line development, amplification loops, regenerative capacity, and remodelling of tissue. Cell therapy  or cytotherapy  in which intact living cellular material is injected into a host body and it is mediated by five primary mechanisms:  providing an anti-inflammatory effect,  endothelial progenitor cells homing for necessary tissue growth, enhancing tissue remodelling over scar formation, inhibiting apoptosis programmable cell death or necrosis and differentiating tissues into specialized tissue.

Bioprocess Technology   process living matter specific optimal conditions to make a required product. Stem-cell bioprocessing is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition in order to preserve the cell functionality.  Bone marrow transplant is the most preferably used stem-cell therapy. The major or fundamental drawback is the lack of real-time, on-line, in-situ, quantitative information with respect to cellular behaviour in tissue culture. Therefore the control, optimisation and scale-up of stem cell bioprocesses are essentially empirical, which results in    inadequate cell expansion and decreased product quality   with inconsistent cell phenotypes. To harness the immense potential of stem cells (SCS) in terms of their plasticity ,replication and expansion capabilities, the physiological activity in relation to the environmental culture parameters  such as pH, dissolved oxygen, nutrients/metabolite concentrations and growth factor concentrations needs to be observed quantitatively with the needed level of accuracy and subsequently evaluated in a biologically  manner. The systematic development of clinically relevant culture systems and methodologies control and regulate stem cell self-renewal, expansion, differentiation, and death.

Immunomodulatory therapy promotes modulation in immune system of host which has three types of immunomodulatory therapy strategies. It involve the usage of immunosuppressant drugs to reduce the impact of the  immune system natural action or the use of immunostimulant drugs to increase immune system response and the use of tolerogens which condition the immune system based on requirement in order to tolerate tissue changes such as transplanted organs. Each category of treatments is designated for specific immune system problems. Immunosuppressant drugs and tolerogens are used  for the purpose of controlling immune system response such as treating autoimmune diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) and organ transplants. Immunostimulant drugs are utilized to enhance the immune system response in cases where immune system is weakened, such as with cancer, AIDS, and other life-threatening infections or diseases.

The moral implications of enhancement tissue science and regenerative medicine technologies may also alter our perception of the life cycle and of bodily integrity, if the person’s body can be reconstituted and rejuvenated using living material derived from various people, making the person into a hybrid. The aim and mode of their action varies, presenting unique challenges regarding their production, the design and conduct of clinical trials, and their introduction in therapy.  The major restraint  are clinical trials require that researchers are not sure about  the effect of  new treatments compare to existing interventions and that the participants consent to treatments.  The small understanding about the syntax of tissue regeneration and consequently of short- and long-term effects, risks, and benefits which challenges us to define criteria for the conduct of trials and for achieving genuine informed consent.
