Biaxial flexure testing of calcium phosphate bioceramics for use in tissue engineering.

This study analyzes data from 206 CaP specimens (68 HA, 70 BCP, and 68 beta-TCP) fractured via biaxial flexure testing. Specimens were divided into four groups: (a) Group I, dry; (b) Group II, wet (day 0, immersion time approximately 5-10 s); (c) Group III, after immersion in media for 21 days (day 21); and (d) Group IV, after culturing osteoblasts (OBs) on… CONTINUE READING
