Methods for loading growth factors on porous scaffolds for evaluation in vitro of release of GF

An appropriate method for loading and incorporating the growth factor has been achieved and this is a vacuum technique. Release kinetic studies have shown that an incorporated growth factor (growth hormone) can be released; this can be applied to other GF. The loading dose required for sustained release over a specific time period has been determined. The released GF has retained biological activity, as indicated by tests using primary human osteoblast-like cells
