Bioglass Bone Grafts Support Regeneration After Fractures, University of the Basque Country Study

Bioglass bone grafts may soon be a common fix for regeneration of broken bones. A Spanish research team's work paves the way for a type of glass that helps heal fractures, and then safely dissolves when its work is done. Bioglass, a type of biologically active glass that binds to bone tissue, has long been a promising target for bone regeneration research. Healthy bones can heal themselves after slight damage, but major fractures or degeneration diseases like osteoporosis limit their ability to mend.
