In vitro evaluation of hydroxyapatite reinforced polyhydroxybutyrate composite

Particulate hydroxyapatite (HA) was incorporated into polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) to form a bioactive and biodegradable composite for applications in hard tissue replacement and regeneration. HA/PHB composite containing 10, 20, and 30 vol.% of HA was made for in vitro evaluation. In vitro studies were conducted using an acellular simulated body fluid (SBF… CONTINUE READING
