CERAM Publishes White Paper on Multi-Substituted Hydroxyapatite


6/20/2012 11:03:43 AM

(Staffordshire, UK) - As part of its ongoing work on biocompatibility and bioactivity of Hydroxyapatite (HA), Ceram, the materials technology company, has published a new white paper, ‘Multi-Substituted Hydroxyapatites and the Role They Can Play in Enhanced Bone Replacement Solutions’.

The white paper, whilst giving a brief introduction of the opportunities for synthetic HA (and associated structures) in bone replacement, focuses on substituted Hydroxyapatite. Some results from a recently completed study on multi-substituted HA - carried out to find out how mean ionic volume and charge impact on the yield of the crystalline HA – are discussed. All HA work reported is based on computer controlled wet precipitation production routes under mild conditions that should be scalable.

With their newly-patented technology, Ceram’s aim is to work with clients to develop HA with tailored bioactivity, both for bone replacement materials applications and for new drug delivery systems with tailored bio-application requirements.

The white paper is free to download at www.ceram.com/ha.
