Silver-containing bioactive glasses for tissue engineering applications

M. Diba and A.R. Boccaccini,    University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany

Abstract:

Bioactive glasses have shown promising results for tissue engineering applications. Specific metallic ions can be used for doping these materials to induce enhanced biological performance. Silver is an element well-known for its antibacterial properties. This chapter present an overview of Ag-doped bioactive glasses including their synthesis, properties and applications in tissue engineering. Moreover, the reported effects of Ag-doping on the properties of bioactive glasses are discussed.
