New synthetic absorbable polymers as BMP carriers: plastic properties of poly-D,L-lactic acid-polyethylene glycol block copolymers.

Abstract

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are biologically active molecules capable of eliciting new bone formation. In combination with biomaterials, these proteins can be used in a clinical setting as bone-graft substitutes to promote bone repair. To find new synthetic absorbable polymers with plastic nature that can be used as BMP-carrier materials, six types… (More)
