There are many innovative treatments in health all over the world that are interesting to read about. In recent news, Dr. Kalpana Katti, Dr. Dinesh Katti and doctoral student Avinash Ambre from North Dakota State University, Fargo, have come up with a novel method that uses nano-sized clays to make scaffolds to mineralise bone minerals such as hydroxyapatite. Whether damaged by injury, disease or age, our bodies cannot create new bone. Researchers are making strides in tissue engineering, designing scaffolds that may lead to ways to regenerate bone. The research team’s 3-D mesh scaffold is comprised of degradable materials that are compatible to human tissue. To read the full article, click here
