Development and cell response of a new biodegradable composite scaffold for guided bone regeneration.

Composites of biodegradable polymers with different calcium phosphate ceramics and glasses, have been developed as scaffolds for applications in bone-tissue engineering. In this work, phosphate glass particles have been incorporated into the polymer, poly(95L/5DL) lactic acid (PLA) and porous structures were elaborated. Their porosity, compressive… CONTINUE READING
