TERMIS 2021 | The osteogenic properties of nanoclays

Jonathan Dawson, PhD, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK, discusses how the properties nanoclays can promote bone regeneration. Magnesium, lithium, and silicate ions released as a result of nanoclay degeneration have proven to stimulate osteogenic pathways in vivo, and nanoclays can modulate macrophage activity, further enhancing bone regeneration. Additional in vivo studies have demonstrated the safety of nanoclays, which do not aggregate in blood or tissue and instead are excreted via the urine. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
