Developing novel bone grafts from New Zealand sourced cattle bone for dental surgery applications

  • 2.2 million bone graft procedures are carried out worldwide per year
  • New Zealand spends NZ$325,000 everyday treating fractures involving bone grafts
  • Three novel bone grafts were prepared using an easy, cost effective and reproducible approach.
  • The bone grafts were chemically, physically and structurally characterised using several analytical techniques.
  • The biological properties of the bone grafts were evaluated using in-vitro cell culture experiments.
  • The bone grafts have a great potential to be used in both dental surgery and orthopaedic applications.
