Investigation of a polyether urethane-based polymer for promoting bone tissue healing

Interest in the field of tissue engineering is rapidly increasing due to its role in providing a platform for regenerative medicine and tissue repair solutions. In particular, there is a clinical need to create a solution for healing major bone breaks and defects in patients using tissue engineering methods. Polyurethanes (PUs) that are ether-based have been shown to have favorable biocompatibility and are generally nondegradable. The goal of this research is to study a polyether urethane-based polymer and its potential to be used in treatments for large bone breaks.
