Russian scientists appear to have succeeded in developing new 3D printing technology that enables the creation of personalized bioactive ceramics based items, Indicator.ru reported.
Following what is reported to be a successful series of preclinical tests on big animals, the researchers now claim their experimental samples of gene-activated materials could be used in targeted regeneration of human bone tissue.
Global healthcare organizations report a large number of patients with skeletal bone defects caused by a variety of reasons from traumas and cancerous pathologies to inborn deformations and inflammation-triggered degenerative developments. According to official Russian stats, in 2015, for example, three million patients with osseous traumas were admitted to hospitals in Russia.
