    Abstract: Bone graft substitutes and bone graft extenders have been routinely used for spine fusions for decades and have become an essential component in a number of orthopedic applications including spinal fusion. Bioactive glass ceramics have the ability to directly bind to bones and have been widely used as bone graft substitutes due to their high osteoc... Show More

    Abstract: Cellulose and its derivatives are used as potential matrices for biomaterials and tissue engineering applications. The objective of present research was to investigate the influence of biofield treatment on physical, chemical and thermal properties of ethyl cellulose (EC) and methyl cellulose (MC). The study was performed in two groups (control and... Show More
