Changes to artificial bone grafts made from sea coral material make them more easy-to-dissolve while retaining their bone-healing properties, according to new research from Swansea University in the UK.
One of the world’s leading online suppliers of dermal fillers has launched new products. Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) October 22, 2013 Representatives with
Researchers from North Carolina State University have for the first time successfully coated polymer implants with a bioactive film. The discovery should improve the success rate of such implants – which are often used in spinal surgeries.
Coating a bone graft with an inorganic compound found in bones and teeth may significantly increase the likelihood of a successful implant.
An artificial bone scaffold produced by researchers in South Korea could enhance the treatment of bone damage and defects through bone graftsTokyo, July 23, 2012 - (JCN Newswire) - Traditionally,
British scientists say they've discovered bacteria that produce hydroxyapatite, a mineral form of calcium, could be used to make better bone implants. Researchers at the University of Birmingham, led by Professor Lynne Macaskie, said they discovered serratia bacteria cells stick tightly to surfaces such as titanium alloy, polypropylene, porous glass and polyurethane foam. The cells form a biofilm layer containing biopolymers that acts as a strong adhesive.
Tooth-colored fillings may be more attractive than silver ones, but the bonds between the white filling and the tooth quickly age and degrade. A Medical College of Georgia researcher hopes a new nanotechnology technique will extend the fillings' longevity.
SAN MATEO, Calif., June 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BioForm Medical, Inc. today announced the publication of five studies in the June 2008 issue of the Journal of Dermatologic Surgery, a peer-reviewed publication of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.
Scientists have shown for the first time that carbon nanotubes make an ideal scaffold for the growth of bone tissue. The new technique could change the way doctors treat broken bones, allowing them to simply inject a solution of nanotubes into a fracture to promote healing.
