Tehran, YJC. Researcher Elnaz Tamjid says her approach uses composite graft to replace damaged osseous tissue.

Tamjid’s came up as one of the select projects at the 7th nano technology festival this year.

Biodegradable polymer-based composites have found a special place in osseous tissue engineering for their good bioactive properties, desirable mechanical features, the ability to wear away gradually into the body and be replaced by repaired tissue.

She maintained that her finding uses bone scaffolds with 90-pct porous structure, fully controlled pore size, and the ability to be grafted in different parts of the body according to anatomic features adaptable to dense and cancellous bone tissues.

Tamjid asserted that the product shortens the rehabilitation time.

Using these nano-composite scaffolds optimizes the internal surface graft cohesion with the osseous cells and provides the option to induce and induct bone tissues, the researcher maintained.
