Nanocomposites scaffolds have been frequently used for a wide variety of tissue engineering applications. In order to encourage successful tissue growth, many agents can be used to produce different effects within the defected tissues. Therefore, controllable and localized delivery of these agents is vital for safety and effectiveness of tissue repair. Many natural and synthetic polymeric systems can act as promising localized delivery systems for enhancing the regeneration of tissues. This short review highlights the state-of-the-art in localized and controlled delivery of biological molecules for tissue engineering applications.
