Part 3 Cellular approaches and physical stimulation of biomaterials for bone regeneration applications: Nanocarriers for Controlled Drug Delivery; Gene transfer vectors (DNA vehicles) and their incorporation into biomaterials for bone repair; Stem cell technology for in vitro bone repair; Stem cell technology for in vivo bone repair; Potential of electromagnetic, ultrasound and laser stimulation for bone regeneration; Shape memory applications in mechanobiology and bone repair.
Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration provides a comprehensive review of currently available biomaterials and how they can be applied in bone regeneration. In recent decades, there has been a shift from the idea of using biomaterials as passive substitutes for damaged bones towards the concept of biomaterials as aids for the regeneration of a host's own bone tissue. This has generated an important field of research and a range of technological developments. Part one of this book discusses a wide range of materials, including calcium phosphate cements, hydrogels, biopolymers, synthetic polymers, and shape memory polymers. Part two then turns to the processing and surface modification of biomaterials, as well as how biomaterials can be evaluated both for their mechanical properties and for immunocompatibility with the host. Finally, part three covers a variety of cellular approaches, and production and delivery of biomaterials for bone regeneration. Chapters also consider the potential of electromagnetic and ultrasonic stimulation of biomaterials to aid in the regenerative process.Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration represents an important resource for academics, clinicians, and industry professionals working in the area of biomedical materials, providing them with both an overview of the current state-of-the-art, and an indication of potential future developments.
