TERMIS 2021 | Regenerative nanoclays in bone regeneration

Jonathan Dawson, PhD, University of Southampton, Southampton, UK, describes the mechanism of action of regenerative nanoclays. Nanoclays have reversible gel-like properties when in water and can attract proteins with their charge. These properties enable nanoclays to be used in bone growth, as growth factors including bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) can aggregate within the nanoclay and be delivered to a localized area, reducing the dosage needed. This interview took place at the 6th World Congress of the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society (TERMIS 2021).
