A novel injectable temperature-sensitive zinc doped chitosan/β-glycerophosphate hydrogel for bone tissue engineering.

Abstract

Hydrogels are hydrophilic polymers that have a wide range of biomedical applications including bone tissue engineering. In this study we report preparation and characterization of a thermosensitive hydrogel (Zn-CS/β-GP) containing zinc (Zn), chitosan (CS) and beta-glycerophosphate (β-GP) for bone tissue engineering. The prepared hydrogel exhibited a liquid… (More)
