Biomaterials for Bone, Regenerative Medicine
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters BCI (WoS).
The aim of “Biomaterials for Bone Regenerative Medicine” is to review extensively the latest developments in Biomaterials and their application to bone regeneration in vivo. Indeed, research on biomaterials and their novel applications is essential because of the health issues related to the aging population. A wide range of worldwide investigations is being undertaken by eminent scholars in order to develop further innovative materials for next-generation applications. In future, it is expected that a tissue engineering approach, associating novel biomaterials with stem cells, will be available for all types of bone defect.
This book is the result of a collaborations between active research groups having expertise in the hottest field of bone-tissue regeneration and reconstruction. It concisely covers materials ranging from the nano-scale to the macroscopic, and offers a comprehensive description of the subject for newcomers, as well as for professionals who may be somewhat unfamiliar with the ceramic aspects of the applications.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Biomaterial engineers and related specialists, a surprising number from Portugal, review recent research into the biomaterials used not only as components in regenerated bone, but also for other functions in the process of bone regeneration. They cover skeletal regenerative biomaterials, silica-based materials as precursors of nano-apatites, phytochemicals for bone regeneration, designed biomaterial scaffolds for bone regeneration, engineered ceramics based on calcium and silicon for skeletal tissue reconstruction, materials based on calcium phosphate, and cell adhesion and proliferation over zinc-glass reinforced hydroxy-apatite composites.
