Research and Development of Calcium Phosphate Cement
Hydroxyapatite (HAP)-forming calcium phosphate cement (CPC), due to the high biocompatibility, easy-to-shape characteristic, and the capacity to self-setting under ambient conditions, has been widely used for the repair of hard tissue defects. To satisfy the different clinical need, some modified CPC, including porous CPC, fast-biodegradable CPC, injectable CPC, water-resistant CPC, and rhBMP-2/CPC, have been designed and fabricated in recent years. This paper attempts to give an overview of different types of CPC that have being developed at the present time. Meanwhile, the application perspective of these modified CPC is also explored.
