In Vitro Evaluation of Porous Biphasic Scaffolds


Article Preview

In the present study, two methods for the production of three-dimensional scaffolds made of bioactive ceramics are presented. Depending on the method, the final product can be composed by pure hydroxyapatite or biphasic: hydroxiapatite + tricalcium phosphate. Bioactivity tests showed that all scaffolds are bioactive. Preliminary studies with adipose stem cells indicated biocompatibility of both scaffolds.
