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 mechanical properties and biological response were evaluated. Interconnected structures with evenly distributed pores and a porosity as high as 97… CONTINUE READING
