Structure of biomaterials plays an important role in endogenous bone regeneration

Written by Jingwei Xie

endogenous bone regeneration

In this editorial from Jingwei Xie (University of Nebraska Medical Center), The Nanomed Zone investigates factors that need to be considered in the development of an engineered biomaterial for endogenous bone regeneration. Read a short snippet of the Editorial below, or find out more about engineering biomaterials for endogenous bone regeneration on our sister site, The Nanomed Zone >> The human body has an incredible capacity for self-repair after injury. This applies to bone tissue, with regeneration able to occur after injury to a certain extent. This regeneration can occur via two basic routes: intramembranous ossification and endochondral ossification. However,...
