Fish shells and frog skins can repair human bones
Singapore: Some bone wounds and injuries are so complex that they are impossible to heal. The solution has now been found in nature, in which fish shells and frog skins can be used successfully in the treatment of bones.
The bones of the thighs, hips and legs are usually damaged by an illness, accident or injury. This missing piece of bone is filled with bone that has grown in the body. But the process is time consuming and complicated.
Now the Nanyang Technological University of Singapore has found a solution to this problem with Snackhead Fish and American Bill Frog Frog. They have made a material from fish shells and frog skins. It should be noted that both the animals are being reared on the farm for their meat.
First they cleaned the frog’s skin of all contaminants and made it into a thick solution of powder, then mixed with water to separate the collagen protein. On the other hand, calcium phosphate, called hydroxyapatide, is extracted from fish shells. Then he dried both of them and made a paste of it. Finally added collagen.
The scaffold was then molded into a three-dimensional (3D) penetrating scaffolding. At this stage, important bone-forming biological components were added. Now, as soon as the material is put on the bone, the bone-forming components grow rapidly. These ingredients spread evenly and smoothly.
In animal trials, the body’s immune system has accepted it and thus we have come across a very unique biomedical substance.
