Bone repair innovations using aquaculture farms

post-image
A new biomaterial has been developed by researchers at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore to aid in bone repair. The biomaterial uses discarded bullfrog skin and fish scales from local aquaculture farms, with experiments finding human bone-forming cells seeded onto the material successfully. They also multiplied which is a sign of growth, with low risk of triggering an inflammatory response. The applications are vast, meaning the biomaterial could be used to help regenerate bone tissue lost to disease or injury or around surgical implants. It provides a great alternative to using a patient's own tissue. | shorturl.at/clqOP
