Bioceramics is a collection of papers that deals in bioactive ceramics, glasses, and composites, focusing on the optimization of the implant-tissue interface.
One paper discusses the osteogenic response of rat bone marrow cells in porous alumina, in hydroxyapatite, and in Kiel bone. Marrow cells loaded alumina and HA ceramics show new bone formation; Kiel bone use does not point to any consistent osteogenesis. Another paper presents the potential of an injectable form of Bioglass to treat urinary incontinence. When injected, it remains at the injection site by bonding to soft tissues without degrading, migrating, or producing an inflammatory reaction. Another paper presents an in vitro method that has shown osteoclast-like cells can resorb artificial calcium phosphate substrata in vitro. The differences in bone bonding mechanisms between surface active ceramics and resorbable ceramics show some chemical bonding and direct contact with the bone. The book also presents some clinical uses of bioactive ceramics such as the successful artificial root therapeutics involving 219 artificial roots implanted in 63 patients.
This book can prove valuable to bio-chemists, cellular biologists, micro-biologists, developmental biologists, and scientists involved in biomaterials research.
