Heparin modification of calcium phosphate bone cements for VEGF functionalization.

Abstract

A promising strategy to promote angiogenesis within an engineered tissue is the local and sustained delivery of an angiogenic factor by the substitute itself. Recently, we reported on functionalization of Biocement D (BioD) and several modifications of this calcium phosphate bone cement with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). Maintenance of… (More)
