Porous collagen-apatite nanocomposite foams as bone regeneration scaffolds.


We have created a porous bioresorbable nanocomposite bone scaffold that chemically, structurally and mechanically matched natural bone so that it could be recognized and remodeled by natural bone. Containing collagen fibers and synthetic apatite nanocrystals, our scaffold has high strength for supporting the surrounding tissue. The foam-like scaffold has a… (More)
