Abstract

We are testing degradation rates of calcium sulfate/polymer composites meant for use as bone graft substitutes. The goal is to demonstrate the potential of composite degradable and biocompatible materials that will resorb slower than pure calcium sulfate. We will determine which composites give us degradation profiles that are appropriate for different types of bone regeneration.
