Abstract

Androgen replacement modalities have been associated with various complications, fluctuation of serum testosterone levels, and repeated treatments. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine strategies, including androgen replacement therapy, provide alternative possibilities for the management of various pathologic tissue conditions. This article presents tissue engineering approaches, which involve the development of androgen supplementation systems for functional androgen replacement.
