Iranian researchers at Biomaterials Department of Isfahan Poly Technique University have built biocompatible materials, using metal alloys, which is resistant against corrosion and matches the bone to improve the properties of elements used in tissue engineering. "The present study is trying to develop a new generation of magnesium-based implantable elements using one type of nano-structure coating to help recovery of bone lesion and minimize side effects of use of these elements," said Ramin Roujani, a MS student in Materials at the university, and author of the study. He said two-layer nano-structure coating is used in this study which boosts resistance against corrosion and creates more biocompatibility, leading to the artificial element's match with the bone. The body cells do not differentiate the biocompatible glass used in the coating and the mineral segment of the bone due to chemical similarity between the two. Using the proposed biodegradeable material, no secondary surgery is needed to remove the implanted material after full recovery. The method reduces bleeding and possible infections after surgery. The results of the research have been published in Ceramics International Journal.
