Bone response and mechanical strength of rabbit femoral defects filled with injectable CaP cements containing TGF-beta 1 loaded gelatin microparticles.

This study focused at the potential of transforming growth factor beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) loaded gelatin microparticles to enhance the bone response and mechanical strength of rabbit femoral defects filled with injectable calcium phosphate (CaP)/gelatin microparticle composites. Therefore, TGF-beta1 loaded composites and non-loaded controls were injected in… (More)
