Bioactive Materials for Bone Regeneration summarizes research advances on the topic, including sections on the characteristics of biomaterial-induced microenvironments, interactions of bioactive materials with stem cells and tissues, and the immunomodulatory microenvironment induced by biomaterials and its effects on osteogenesis. As the regeneration of large-size bone tissue defects represents a significant clinical challenge, this book demonstrates how new biomaterials with specific chemical and physical characteristics may interact with the host and create a unique micro-environment that actively facilitates stem cell differentiation along a specific lineage, thus stimulating tissue regeneration.

Key Features

  • Provides readers with the latest research developments in the fabrication techniques of bioactive materials for tissue regeneration and tissue engineering applications
  • Presents the latest research advancements on how bioactive materials interact with the host and induce micro-environments for stem cell differentiation, immunomodulation and tissue regeneration
  • Covers the methods, strategies, principle and mechanisms on constructing beneficial biomaterial microenvironments


Undergraduate and graduate students and practitioners in biomedical engineering, life and biological sciences, materials, mechanical and engineering sciences, and medicine

Table of Contents

1. Introduction

2. Bioactive materials characteristics, surface, interface and their biological effects on osteogenesis
Focuses on different fabrication methods for preparation of bone regeneration biomaterials with the emphasis on the accurate control of biomaterials characteristics such as chemical composition, macro and micro structures and mechanical properties. The methods for surface modification of bone biomaterials, and evaluation of chemical and physical properties of the prepared materials will also be introduced. The second part of the chapter includes the interaction of bone biomaterials with cells and tissues, and the specific effects of biomaterial characteristics on osteogenesis.

3. Biomaterial-induced microenvironment and host reaction in bone regeneration
Examines the biomaterial-induced microenvironment and host reaction in bone regeneration, including effect of biomaterial structure and degradation products on microenvironments of cells and tissue defects and the mechanisms of how the bioactive materials affect cell behaviour and stem cell niche, including cell-cell interaction and extracellular matrix synthesis, and also how the biomaterials affect bone regeneration in vivo.

4. Biomaterial-induced microenvironment and immunomodulation in bone regeneration
Lokks at immunoreactions of cells and host tissue to bioactive bone biomaterials. In particular, the immunomodulation of bioactive materials will be addressed including the induction of macrophage differentiation and cytokine expression, and mechanisms how bone bioactive materials affect interactions of immune cells and bone forming cells.

5. Future perspectives
Is a brief summary on the development of bioactive materials for bone regeneration, and prediction of the future trends on the development of bioactive materials for bone tissue engineering.

Xingdong Zhang

Xingdong Zhang is a professor of Sichuan University, and President of the International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering (IUSBSE), and Honorary President of the Chinese Society for Biomaterials (CSBM). His research focuses on calcium-phosphate biomaterials and implantable medical devices for musculoskeletal system. In 1983, he was the first in China to research and develop hydroxyapatite (HA) ceramics and related synthetic bone grafts. In 1987, he was the first in China to design and develop titanium dental implants and total hip replacements (THR) with plasma-sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) coatings. He was one of the pioneers in the world to find and confirm that porous calcium phosphates ceramics can induce bone formation in 1991. To date, three companies founded by him have obtained six Registration Certificates for Medical Devices issued by the China Food and Drug Administration. 20 series of products with over 200 different specifications have been commercialized and applied to dozens of thousand cases in near 1000 Chinese hospitals. Prof. Zhang has made significant contributions to the development of biomaterials science and engineering in China and the world. As one of the major participants, he has drawn up a series of National Strategic Plans for biomaterials development in China since the end of last century. He founded the first national center for biomaterials research in China in 2000—the National Engineering Research Center for Biomaterials. Prof. Zhang served as an Observer (1992-1996) of the ILC and a Delegate (1996-2008) of the IUSBSE. He has initiated and organized a series of bilateral and multilateral biomaterials meetings at home and abroad. Especially, as President of the 9th World biomaterials Congress, he successfully organized a superb congress which was highly regarded at home and abroad. Prof. Zhang has numerous honors and awards. He is a Member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Foreign Member of the National Academy of Engineering, Fellow of the IUSBSE and the American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, winner of National Natural Science Award of China (Second Prize), National Science and Technology Progress Award of China (Second Prize), Sharma Award from the Society for Biomaterials and Artificial Organs (India), Hashiguchi Lungi Fund Award (Japan), and Outstand Contribution Award (CSBM), and the 2015 Clemson Award for Applied Research (US).
