Periodic Report 2 - VASCUBONE (Construction kit for tailor-made vascularised bone implants)

Project ID: 242175
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


This is the periodic summary report for the VASCUBONE project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The overall goal of VASCUBONE is to develop a 'tool box' for bone regeneration, which includes a variation of biocompatible biomaterials and cell types, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved growth factors, material modification technologies, simulation and analytical tools like molecular imaging based in vivo diagnostics.

The report summarises the project objectives and goes on with the activities undertaken regarding the selection and characterisation of biomaterials, the two different cell populations for bone regeneration, the combination of biomaterial and cells, the new non-invasive imaging techniques as well as the preclinical and clinical trials. It closes with a brief mention on the expected final results and their potential impact.
