Tissue Engineering for Halal Xenografts



The book is about the emerging field of tissue engineering and its potential to address the unique healthcare challenges faced by the growing Muslim population around the world. With the number of Muslim individuals increasing and spreading across various countries, there is a growing demand for medical treatments and solutions that align with Islamic religious rules and principles. One significant obstacle that tissue engineering faces in meeting these needs is the use of xenografts from pigs, which is prohibited according to Islamic dietary laws. However, this book presents a ray of hope by exploring alternative tissue and biomaterial sources derived from animals that are considered halal (permissible) for Muslims, such as ovine, bovine, equine, chicken, and fish.
Through a comprehensive review of cutting-edge research in tissue engineering, the book showcases the advancements made using non-pig materials, highlighting their potential to pave the way for halal tissue-engineered xenografts. By doing so, it seeks to open new avenues for medical progress and foster a greater understanding of how science and religious principles can harmoniously work together to benefit the Muslim population’s healthcare needs. The book serves as a valuable resource for researchers, healthcare professionals, and policymakers, shedding light on the future possibilities of halal xenografts and their potential impact on the global Muslim community.
