EU Bio-Bone Project Develops Bioceramics for Bone Repair

As a partner in the EU-funded Bio-Bone project, Bioceramics for Bone Repair, Lucideon is pleased to announce that the pan-European consortium has successfully developed phosphate-glasses (p-glasses) with biomaterial properties for bone repair.

Studies showed that p-glasses, which are used for bone implants, do not give the desired cell response largely due to  fast degradation. The research team focused on addressing the issue of p-glass stability by doping with various inorganic ions which are known to affect the biological responses to the implants, and developing p-glasses with the appropriate physio-chemical properties.
