Bioglass for implants and bone grafts

The CSIC, the University of Malaga and the CIBER laboratory have obtained bio-glass for medical uses in bone regeneration and tissue engineering. These materials, called Nitri-bioglasses, can be used as temporary scaffolds in bone implants or reconstructive surgery. They biodegrade quickly and enhance the adhesion and growth of new cells.
