Bioceramics and bio glasses are ceramic materials that are biocompatible, important subset of biomaterials. Range in biocompatibility from the ceramic oxides which are inert in the body to the other extreme of resorbable materials which are eventually replaced by the materials which they were used to repair. Bioceramics are used in many types of medical procedures. A primary medical procedure where they are used is implants, primarily concerned with rigid materials commonly used as surgical implants, though some bioceramics are flexible. The ceramic materials used are not the same as porcelain type ceramic materials. Rather Bioceramics are closely related to either the body's own materials, or are extremely durable metal oxides.
OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The conference series website will provide you list and details about the conference organize worldwide.
Scope and Importance:
The long term goal of bioceramics research and development should be the molecular design of implant materials. They need to be tailored at a molecular leve1 for control of biochemical interactions and optimized for a particular biomechanical behavior.
The short term approach to achieve this long term goal appears to be the use of bioactive glass in the form of powders of fibers in composite structures with tough polymers such as polyethylene, as developed by Professor Bonfield's group.
Ceramics are now commonly used in the medical fields as dental, and bone implants. Artificial teeth and bones are relatively commonplace. Surgical cermets are used regularly. Joint replacements are commonly coated with bioceramic materials to reduce wear and inflammatory response. Other examples of medical uses for bioceramics are in pacemakers, kidney dialysis machines, and respirators.
Bioceramic materials are commonly subdivided by their bioactivity. Bioinert materials are non-toxic and non-inflammatory. These materials must be long lasting, structural failure resistant, and corrosion resistant. Bioceramics additionally must have a low Young's modulus to help prevent cracking of the material.
One proposed use for bioceramics is the treatment of cancer. Two methods of treatment have been proposed; treatment through hyperthermia, and radiotherapy. Hyperthermia treatment involves implanting a bioceramic material that contains a ferrite or other magnetic material. The area is then exposed to alternating magnetic field, which causes the implant and surrounding area to heat up. Alternatively the bioceramic materials can be doped with β-emitting materials and implanted into the cancerous area.Market Analysis:
The global demand on medical ceramics and ceramic components was about US$9.8 billion in 2010. It is forecast to have an annual growth of 6–7% in the following years, and the world market value will increase to US$15.3 billion by 2015 and reach US$18.5 billion by 2018.
