Silica-Calcium Phosphate nano Composite (SCPC)

SCPC is a novel resorbable, porous and bioactive silica based calcium phosphate nano composite that has the ability to stimulate rapid bone regeneration when grafted in large bone defects. The entire structure of SCPC contains unmodified silica, silica solid solution, unmodified calcium phosphate and Na/Si modified calcium phosphate, which synergistically enhance the bioactivity and resorbability of the material. SCPC has demonstrated superior mechanical behavior, bioactivity and controlled resorbability compared to other bone-substitute materials such as Hydroxyapatite (HA) and Bioactive Glass (BG).
