9780470711613: Bio-Glasses: An Introduction

This new work is dedicated to glasses and their variants which can be used as biomaterials to repair diseased and damaged tissues. Bio-glasses are superior to other biomaterials in many applications, such as healing bone by signaling stem cells to become bone cells.

  Key features: 

  • First book on biomaterials to focus on bio-glasses
  • Edited by a leading authority on bio-glasses trained by one of its inventors, Dr Larry Hench
  • Supported by the International Commission on Glass (ICG)
  • Authored by members of the ICG Biomedical Glass Committee, with the goal of creating a seamless textbook
  • Written in an accessible style to facilitate rapid absorption of information
  • Covers all types of glasses, their properties and applications, and demonstrates how glass is an attractive improvement to current procedures
  • Of interest to the biomedical as well as the materials science community.

 
The book covers all types of glasses: traditional glasses, bioactive glasses, sol-gel glasses, phosphate glasses, glass-ceramics, composites and hybrids. Alongside discussion on how bio-glasses are made, their properties, and the reasons for their use, the authors also cover their applications in dentistry, bone regeneration and tissue engineering and cancer treatment. Its solid guidance describes the steps needed to take a new material from concept to clinic, covering the essentials of patenting, scale-up, quality assurance and FDA approval.

From the Back Cover:

"understanding the science, technology and applications of bioactive glasses is a very important educational need for the healthcare and glass community. This unique book provides the fundamental level of comprehension needed...the contents are authoritative."
Professor Larry L. Hench, Department of Materials and Engineering at the University of Florida

Bio-glasses can be used to direct cells to carry out specific tasks and heal diseased and damaged tissues. They can be used in this capacity to mend bones, as drug delivery agents and in cancer therapy. This is the first book dedicated to glasses (and their variants) that can be used as biomaterials. Covering all types of glasses: traditional, sol-gel, phosphate, borate, glass ceramics, composites and hybrids, the book discusses how each are made, the reasons for their use and their properties. It then moves on to describe applications, including tissue engineering, orthopedics, dentistry, and radiotherapy.

Written in a style that is accessible to the non-expert, Bio-Glasses: An Introduction explains the science and engineering principles behind glasses and their properties and provides an overview of their clinical applications.
