Biodegradable Biomaterials

Biodegradable metals are those which are intended to get degraded in the body safely. The metals are either magnesium based or iron based alloys. They are mainly applied for cardiovascular implants as stents and orthopaedics. Hydrogels are the polymeric materials containing water, which are the first biomaterials for human use. They help in tissue engineering, implantable devices, biosensors, materials controlling the activity of enzymes, etc. Degradation of Biomaterials is a serious problem for any medical device whether it is precluding degradation of implantable devices or forecasting the amount of degradation of tissue engineering scaffolds or drug releasing elements. Nanofiber scaffolds are used for orthopaedic tissue repair and regeneration. Biomimetic materials are those which can show cellular responses mediated by scaffold and peptide interactions from extracellular matrix. There are approximately 300 universities, 400 companies and 50 societies working in the field of Bio-degradable materials.
