• calcium phosphate cements
  • Compared to cortical bone and polymeric bone cements, the mechanical properties of calcium phosphate cements are generally poor. (diva-portal.org)
  • A cement comprising these properties has great potential of changing the future clinical indications for calcium phosphate cements, and could potentially reduce the use of non-degradable polymeric cements. (diva-portal.org)
  • Degradable synthetic materials with properties similar to bone, such as calcium phosphate cements, are a promising alternative. (diva-portal.org)
  • Calcium phosphate cements are suited for a limited amount of applications and improving their physical properties could extend their use into areas previously not considered possible. (diva-portal.org)
  • The focus of this thesis is, therefore, on how the physical properties of acidic calcium phosphate cements (brushite cements) are affected by compositional variations, with the ultimate aim of making it possible to formulate brushite cements with desired properties. (diva-portal.org)

  • In addition, all mycobacteria also contain at least one gene encoding the low-affinity phosphate transporter, Pit. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The present study was directed at investigating the role of the low-affinity phosphate transporter in a bacterium containing at least two high-affinity systems, using the model of M. smegmatis . (biomedcentral.com)
