• 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)
  • specific
  • The calcium phosphate sample with the highest specific surface area and the smallest, spherical particle size was the most effective in both drug loading and release, consequently having the highest antibacterial efficiency. (chapman.edu)
  • development
  • The obtained results suggest that the nanoscale particle size and the corresponding coarseness of the surface of particle conglomerates as the cell attachment points may present a favorable starting point for the development of calcium-phosphate-based osteogenic drug delivery devices.
