‘It was like a miracle’: Russian scientists create ‘bio-cement’ for human bones


Published on 20 Apr 2015
A recent invention by Russian scientists could significantly shorten the healing time, if
you've ever been unfortunate enough to have a broken bone.

Russian scientists have created a new biological material they called “bone cement”,
which after 3D printing into a fracture or a crack, completely dissolves over time, while
in its place the human body regenerates the missing part of the bone tissue.

The new substance based on biological hydroxyapatite was created by scientists of the
Russian National Research Nuclear University’s affiliate in the Siberian city of Seversk,
Tomsk region.

“We have created material that the organism takes as original,” professor Vitaly Guzeev
said in the statement. The material is soft and flexible but hardens after application. The
material is not rejected by the body and has huge broad potential in surgery, ranging
from dentistry and cosmetology.

“On the basis of hydroxyapatite, we prepared a liquid material that we can fill a 3D-
printer with,” professor has explained. Scientists hope to use tomography images and
3D printer to recreate, fit and match the missing bone part using minute specification.

The new material, which authors themselves call “bone cement” was conceived almost by accident.

Initially, scientists were working on the composition, which when applied to titanium
prostheses would accelerate recovery. Then they thought why not make this material as
strong as titanium, but without iron impurities.

“The bone marrow contains mesenchymal cells that always migrate to the damaged
tissue areas. They detect our matter as something that can take part in biochemical
processes and start processing it to enable [cell] division. Regeneration is cell division
itself. As a result, a new bone tissue is produced with its own blood vessels and nerve
cells,” Guzeev explained.

All components of the material are of natural origin, as the substance is derived from
animal bones. This enables the body to adopt to it and accelerate the healing process.

Applying the “cement” results in the regeneration of real bone tissue with blood vessels
and even nerve fibers. Unlike with titanium, which is often used in surgery to hold
bones together, removing the material from the body after the regeneration is
complete, is no longer necessary.

After animal studies demonstrated that the “bone cement” could actually help heal
fractures and cracks, scientists started preparing documen

Russia: Scientists make revolutionary breakthrough in 3D 'organ printing'


Published on 26 Mar 2015

Russian scientists demonstrated a revolutionary step by using a 3D 'bio-printer' to
produce a thyroid gland, using cells from a mouse, in Skolkovo on Wednesday.

wow that's awesome!
thanks for sharing.

Pretty cool stuff. Anybody else wonder if 3D printers are back-engineered/shared tech? I'm not as big on ET/alien stuff as many on here, but 3D printer technology warps my brain.

Hey Cidersomerset, thanks to share this important discovery!

Only because black ops dark westerners are the asshats of the world.

Thank you for posting this, Cidersomerset. Exciting!

I had a broken metatarsal which took nearly a year to fuse. If only this technology had been around!

Now if only someone would invent 'brain cement' perhaps we could
rescue millions and millions of elderly people around the world.

That´s a good one Lucidity (honoring your name). For now Russia is the best place to break a leg. Puttin is really handaling everything right. Now i can understand why is always been said "Mother Russia", they are honoring thier nickname also. Hope they countinue and that is not part of the dirty game.

Bravo for lymph gland replacement. Bravo for bone cement. Using science for the benefit of humanity is wonderful. Soon there will be bone regeneration for missing limbs or bio-printer bone replacement? Looks like they are going for it, and war isn't so much on the brain with these guys.
