Gentamicin-loaded strontium-containing hydroxyapatite bioactive bone cement--an efficient bioactive antibiotic drug delivery system.

Abstract

Modified strontium-containing hydroxyapatite (Sr-HA) bone cement was loaded with gentamicin sulfate to generate an efficient bioactive antibiotic drug delivery system for treatment of bone defects. Gentamicin release and its antibacterial property were determined by fluorometric method and inhibition of Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) growth. Gentamicin… (More)
