Ceramic materials are osteoconductive matrices extensively used in bone tissue engineering approaches. The performance of these types of biomaterials can be greatly enhanced by the incorporation of bioactive agents and materials. It is previously reported that chitosan is a biocompatible, biodegradable material that enhances bone formation. In the other hand, bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) is a well-known osteoinductive factor. In this work we coated porous beta-tricalcium phosphate (beta… CONTINUE READING
