Improve healing, prevent infection with 3D bioprinted scaffold
Researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center have invented a novel bone scaffold that supports healing while simultaneously preventing infections. With the help of the latest 3D bioprinting technology, they created a device that is equal parts regenerative and antimicrobial in one biocompatible package.
An initial prototype demonstrated tremendous efficacy in a mouse craniotomy model of biofilm infection. Final product embodiments include off-the-shelf and patient-specific products.
