Drug Confinement and Delivery in Ceramic Implants

Author(s): Maria Vallet-Regi, Francisco Balas, Montserrat Colilla, Miguel Manzano.

Abstract:

Ordered silica-based mesoporous materials could be specially designed and chemically modified for the adsorption of drugs that would be locally released. The drug adsorption and release kinetics are controlled by several factors such as pore size, volume, architecture and chemistry of the silica walls.

Keywords: Bioceramics, bone tissue regeneration, drug-delivery, mesoporous materials
