Abstract

Hydroxyapatite porous material was coated by bioabsorbable polymers such as PCL or PLGA containing statin which is a commercial drug known to enhance bone formation in vivo condition. The compressive mechanical properties of the composite scaffolds were evaluated to assess the effects of polymer coating. Drug release tests were also performed to assess the effects of coating polymer and coating method on the drug release rate. It is concluded that the stain/PLGA(PCL)/HA scaffolds can be one of the potential candidates for bone tissue engineering.
