PBC Biomed is delighted to announce that a new book, ‘Octacalcium Phosphate Biomaterials’ has recently been published and is available for sale. The book is a comprehensive study of octacalcium phosphate (OCP), a next generation biomaterial for bone regeneration, including its potential for clinical application
• Contains comprehensive, up-to-date information on the basic science, including physical, chemical and biological properties
• Presents the clinical potential of octacalcium phosphate biomaterials
• Provides a reference point for new research and increased activity in the area of next generation smarter biomaterials for hard tissue repair and regeneration
Octacalcium Phosphate Biomaterials: Past, Present and Future is a comprehensive study of octacalcium phosphate (OCP), a next generation biomaterial for bone regeneration. By focusing both on fundamental research and the use of OCP as a scaffold material, this book explores its potential to deliver improved clinical results.
OCP is known to be a pre-cursor to hydroxyapatite in the human biomineralization process that forms bone and tooth enamel. Research studies that have emerged in recent years suggest OCP’s tremendous potential as a bioactive material.
