Osteoarthritis (OA) has been a common disease among the elderly people but there are no existing solutions clinically efficient for OA. Therefore, tissue engineering has developed in the field of cartilage regeneration. As we all know, tissue engineering has three basic elements: cell, scaffold and growth factor. Injectable scaffolds which can form a gel with original liquid form at the site of defect through a syringe are an emerging scaffold for cartilage engineering. Scaffold can be composed of many materials such as natural materials, synthetic materials, composite materials as well as hybrid materials. Here we mainly discuss the natural materials for cartilage regeneration.
