Bioactive bone cements use nano-sized titania particles

Researchers at Kyoto University and their colleagues have developed bioactive bone cements containing nano-sized titania particles for use as bone substitutes. Their results show that the osteoconduction of the new material is significantly better than that of the other cements, and that it is a promising material for use as a bone substitute. more @ sciencedirect.com
