Scientists at Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) in Siberia are developing technologies for creating new materials that would regenerative medicine gentler and more biocompatible, the TPU press service announced. At the heart of the innovation are biocompatible coatings for implants which the developers claim are not rejected by the human body. This is said to facilitate regeneration. For example, in the Ilizarov system used to knit broken bones or treat congenital osseous malformations, pins are covered with a special calcium-phosphate coating, using a high-frequency magnetic application method. The coating is said to be structurally very close to the bone tissue and apparently shows good graft retention properties without the risk of complications, said Sergei Tverdokhlebov, the project leader...
