In-vitro biological test methods to evaluate bio-resorbability

Subtitle:
In vitro biological test methods to evaluate bioresorbability
Abstract:
Biomaterials are commonly employed in medicine, odontology and biotechnology. The degradation of a material will depend on the chemical structure of the material employed such as polymer, metal and/or ceramic. In this chapter the degradation mechanisms of biomaterials are dealt with, using in vitro methods to assess the characterization of their resorption, bioerosion and bioabsorption.
