Our goal is to create smart materials that help the body repair itself. Our first target is bone repair. Our plans extend to the repair of any tissue.
Our first generation of materials is based on tough ceramics which accelerate bone tissue growth.
Our second generation of materials is designed to promote tissue healing wherever it is needed.
BioCeramic Therapeutics Ltd received its first financing round in the first quarter of 2007. This funding will enable the company to press forward with its plans to develop a range of products designed to help patients suffering from a range of bone and soft tissue related conditions.

Materials based on glass with components that make it more bone-like have been implanted in patients since the 1970s. Our founding scientists have shown that a modification to such bioactive ceramics accelerates the deposition of the required bone-related mineral (hydroxyapatite). The modification simultaneously promotes bone growth and inhibits bone destruction.
The second generation of smart materials mimics the natural structure of the frameworks that surrounds the cells in your body. This nanostructured material can prompt tissue regeneration by virtue of its physical as well as chemical properties.
Who we benefit
The 20th century saw life expectancy increase by at least a decade. In the 21st century, one of the challenges will be ensuring that we are physically and mentally able to thrive as we age. This is the task of regenerative medicine.
BioCeramic Therapeutics is dedicated to developing medical interventions that enable the body to renew damaged tissues. We have new materials that promise faster recovery from fractures, building stronger bones rather than scar tissue.Our materials also have many other potential applications.
This is the challenge that faces us. Taking it on promises longer and more active lives.
