The use of magnetism in tissue engineering is a very promising approach, in fact magnetic scaffolds are able not only to support tissue regeneration, but they can be activated and work like a magnet attracting functionalized magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) injected close to the scaffold enhancing tissue regeneration. This study aimed to assess the in vivo biocompatibility and osteointegrative properties of novel magnetic scaffolds. Two hydroxyapatite/collagen (70/30 wt %) magnetic scaffolds were… CONTINUE READING
