Abstract
Bone is among the most frequently transplanted tissues in the body. In Europe, about one million patients encounter a surgical bone reconstruction annually. The worldwide market of bone replacement materials is currently estimated at 5 billion Euros, with a 10% growth due to the ageing of the population. Natural grafts present several drawbacks which pushed scientists to investigate synthetic biomaterials. Although most synthetic bone substitutes available possess some of the positive properties...
