Calcium phosphate cements are biomaterials made from a mixture of calcium phosphate powder in aqueous solutions that forms a paste that reacts at the body temperature and hardens as a result of precipitation reactions. These cements are commonly used in dentistry and orthopedic bone filling surgeries, which require extremely invasive procedures. The challenge consists in formulating an injectable paste by additives incorporation. In this work, three different additives (carboxymethylcellulose… CONTINUE READING
