This volume of the Bioceramics series includes the papers selected for the 20th International Symposium on Ceramics in Medicine held in Nantes, France, from the 24th to the 26th of October, 2007.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Some of the topics covered deal with advanced materials and technologies that support the exciting technique of the regeneration of osteoarticular tissues using minimal invasive surgery and bioactive prostheses.
The contents feature the sections: - Calcium phosphate - Bioglass - CaP Cements - Injectable Materials - Composites - Bioactive Titanium and Metals - Zirconia Ceramics - Dental Materials - Scaffolds - Osteoinduction - Cell-Material Interactions - Tissue Engineering - Drug Delivery - Animal Studies - Clinical Applications.
This book will therefore be invaluable to materials scientists, bioengineers, molecular and cellular biologists, bone biologists, dentists and clinicians.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: This is the proceedings of the 20th International Symposium on Ceramics in Medicine, held in Nantes, France, in October of 2007, which brought together representatives from the scientific and industrial communities to share fundamental research and clinical and technological applications. The two volumes collect 352 peer-reviewed papers, opening with the keynote, "Multiphase Biomaterials: A Concept for Bone Substitutes Developed in the 'Pays de la Loire'." The rest are organized into sections on calcium phosphate, bioglass, calcium phosphate cements, injectable materials, composites, bioactive titanium and materials, zirconia ceramics, dental materials, scaffolds, osteoinduction, cell-material interactions, drug delivery, animal studies, and clinical applications.
