This ACerS video is a lecture by Larry Hench given at the PACRIM8 Conference in June 2009 in Vancouver.

Hench has been at the forefront of the revolution that has occurred in the past four decades in the field of bioactive glass. First discovered in 1969, these materials provided the first alternative to bioinert materials. In their second generation, bioglass has been used in interfacial bonding of an implant with host tissues. Today, according to Hench, we stand on the threshold of a third generation of bioglass materials that will leverage the gene-activating properties of “45S5 Bioglass” to turn on a body’s own repair process and trigger real tissue regeneration. 32 minutes.

One Response to Bioglass from Concept to Clinic: A 40-year Retrospective

  1. amr kobeisy says:

    Are all stem cell researches bassed on the same principle as the working principle found in the “45S5 Bioglass”? If not, what are the differences between them?

    I think this is a huge leap into the future of biomaterial that might one day cure all cancers and other terminal diseases…Great lecture thank you

    and have fun!
