Calcium phospho silicate bone graft substitute
By Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences & Technology(SCTIMST)
The need for bone graft arises quite often in orthopedics, which is conventionally managed by autologous bone (patient’s own bone harvested from other sites). Synthetic bone grafts are helpful in augmenting the inadequacies in grafting or to replace the autologous bone. Hydroxyapatite, is conventionally used. Silicate containing calcium and phosphorous ions (better known as ‘bioglass’), is considered as next generation bone graft. It performs better, considering resorption and healing and helps to regain the normal anatomy faster.
Development Stage
The know-how for the calcium-phospho-silicate graft substitute has been licensed. Multiple technology transfer is envisaged.
