  • researchers
  • A unique, hybrid bone implant has been developed by the researchers using a combination of two polymers that imitates the bone structure and is increasingly reinforced to provide strength and elasticity. (medindia.net)
  • disorders
  • Dr Freddy Teo Cheng Peng provides comprehensive for the diagnostic investigations and treatment of a wide range of benign blood and bone marrow disorders. (65doctor.com)
  • They can differentiate into many cell types including bone, fat, and muscle which allow them to treat a large range of disorders. (wikipedia.org)
  • make
  • The aim of this research was to make bone marrow transplant safe and free from unwanted side effects for the patient. (medindia.net)
  • calcium
  • Renal Osteodystrophy which is referred to as Mineral Bone Disorder is a result of imbalance in calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone and Vitamin D levels. (medindia.net)
  • Calcium and vitamin D are known to improve bone health. (medindia.net)
  • The research team developed an accessory bone similar to normal long bones in the body with an outer porous hydrogel matrix composed of calcium phosphate minerals and an inner marrow cavity. (medindia.net)
  • implant
  • The implant not only imitates the human bone, but the porous part will also allow the bone to penetrate the implant, which over time, will behave like a natural human bone. (medindia.net)
  • The imitation of the human bone is not the only advantage of the implant: moreover, the porous part will allow the bone to "penetrate" the implant. (medindia.net)
  • This means that over time, the fixing plates can be removed, and the implant will already behave as a bone. (medindia.net)
  • Scientists proceed the research in two directions: they test the hybrid material in vivo, and work on the attaching bioceramics to the implant surface to accelerate regeneration in the replaced bone area. (medindia.net)
  • research
  • cortical bone has elastic modulus about 11 GPa, and PEEK has about 9 GPa" - Alexander Chubrik, 4th year student, co-author of the research. (medindia.net)
  • study
  • The engineered marrow used in the study eliminated the need for such irradiation, making the transplant safer. (medindia.net)
  • success
  • The pre-treatment is done to improve the chances of success of bone marrow transplant but is associated with undesirable side effects such as fatigue, nausea, vomiting, and infertility. (medindia.net)
  • skin
  • Bone pain Bruising and easy bleeding due to inadequate numbers of platelets Cachexia (loss of appetite, weight loss, and fatigue) Enlargement of both the liver and spleen Fatigue Gout and high uric acid levels Increased susceptibility to infection, such as pneumonia Pallor and shortness of breath due to anemia In rarer cases, a raised red blood cell volume Cutaneous myelofibrosis is a rare skin condition characterized by dermal and subcutaneous nodules.
