Preparation of Caclium Phosphate Paste Composites with Demineralized Bone Matrix


Article Preview

In this study, we attempted preparation and assessments of composite pastes of demineralized bone matrix (DBM) and calcium phosphate cement (CPC). While the composite pastes presented self-setting behavior up to a certain DBM content without significant differences in setting time, temperature increase and phase transformation, compressive strength and injection capability decreased in general with the DBM content. The DBM particulates were observed to uniformly disperse in the composite cross-sections, suggesting a new model of bioactive paste with tissue regenerative function.
