The aim of this work was the morphological, physicochemical, mechanical and biological characterization of a new composite system, based on gelatin, gellan and hydroxyapatite, and mimicking the composition of natural bone. Porous scaffolds were prepared by freeze–drying technique, under three different conditions of freezing. The morphological analysis showed a homogeneous porosity, with well interconnected pores, for the sample which underwent a more rapid freezing. The elastic modulus of the… CONTINUE READING
