The Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Research Center (CINN) will study bone mass loss and other microgravity effects suffered by mice sent to Space. The Nanomedicine group of the CINN, led by Dr. Mario Fernández Fraga, takes part in a NASA research project aiming at the study of the human long-time exposure to microgravity and particularly the effect of such microgravity on bone development and disesases like arthritis or osteoporosis….

Posted by / in Blog Health, Featured News, News Multifunctional Materials and Nanocomposites / No comments yet

The CINN has been invited to participate in the Japan-Spain Joint Workshop on Nanomedicine Research that will be held in Madrid on 1st December 2016. This event is being organized by AMED, MINECO, CSIC and ISCIII and will bring together Researchers in scientific fields related with Nanomedicine and policy representatives from Japan and Spain in order to explore possibilities of collaboration.

The CINN will be represented by Prof. Ramón Torrecillas, director of the CINN, who will give an overview of the Nanomedicine Research Lines at the Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology Research Center. This talk will be part of the workshop session on “Nanotechnology applications on regenerative medicine”

Histological response of soda-lime glass-ceramic bactericidal rods implanted in the jaws of beagle dogs

Bacterial and fungal infections remain a major clinical challenge. Implant infections very often require complicated revision procedures that are troublesome to patients and costly to the healthcare system. Innovative approaches to tackle infections are urgently needed. We investigated the histological response of novel free P2O5 glass-ceramic rods implanted in the jaws of beagle dogs. Due to the particular percolated morphology of this glass-ceramic, the dissolution of the rods in the animal body environment and the immature bone formation during the fourth months of implantation maintained the integrity of the glass-ceramic rod. No clinical signs of inflammation took place in any of the beagle dogs during the four months of implantation. This new glass-ceramic biomaterial with inherent bactericidal and fungicidal properties can be considered as an appealing candidate for bone tissue engineering.
