Bone Tissue Regeneration in Pune University

13 July 2021 Current Affairs:Savitribai Phule Pune University in India synthesised a nano biomaterial with a stable link between two molecules. The advancement could soon aid in tissue regeneration

About Bone tissue regeneration: 
♦ Bone defect of critical size due to trauma or disease. These are extremely difficult to repair through natural host tissue growth.
♦ As a result, there is a need to fill these defects with a bridging (usually porous) material (termed scaffold), which should also promote the regeneration of new bone tissue when combined with relevant cells and signalling molecules. 
♦ The biomaterials of choice for the development of such scaffolds should have bioactive properties, which means they should react with physiological fluids and form tenacious bonds for bone formation.
