Pitt researchers’ work on bone growth heads to spaceAntonette HoWhat do a dentist, a super glue, and the International Space Station have in common? Not much normally, but starting Tuesday, they’ll begin a journey together to answer questions lying deep within our bones. Dr. Giuseppe Intini, Associate Professor of Periodontics and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, is a dentist whose research at the Center for Craniofacial Regeneration focuses on skeletal stem cells — the “master cells” of the skeletal system — and their ability...
Local company develops adhesive that could be game changer for bone fracture healingAntonette HoLocal researchers believe they have developed an adhesive that could help broken bones heal faster. Lowell-based RevBio told 7NEWS they hope their biomaterial, “Tetranite,” can one day be used to treat osteoporosis or spinal fractures. The adhesive is being developed to help bond fractures and fill gaps as new bone material grows. An injectable product that creates a robust bond in minutes, the company hopes Tetranite can also come in handy when it comes to healing bone lost in surgeries...
Novel Bone Adhesive to Fly on SpaceX CRS-26Antonette HoMore than 200 million people worldwide are affected by osteoporosis, a crippling bone disease that decreases bone density, causing bones to weaken and become increasingly susceptible to fracture. Researchers from RevBio, a biomedical startup, are turning to the microgravity environment of the International Space Station (ISS) National Laboratory to further the development of a novel therapeutic that could help repair bone fractures.
