|Abstract||Segmental bone defects resulting from trauma or pathology represent a common and significant clinical problem. In this study, a triphasic ceramic (calcium silicate, hydroxyapatite and tricalcium phosphate)-coated hydroxyapatite (HASi) having the benefits of both HA (osteointegration, osteoconduction) and silica (degradation) was used as a bone substitute for the repair of segmental defect (2 cm) created in a goat femur model. Three experimental goat femur implant groups - (a) bare HASi, (b) osteogenic-induced goat bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells cultured HASi (HASi + C) and (c) osteogenic-induced goat bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells cultured HASi + platelet-rich plasma (HASi + CP) - were designed and efficacy performance in the healing of the defect was evaluated. In all the groups, the material united with host bone without any inflammation and an osseous callus formed around the implant. This reflects the osteoconductivity of HASi where the cells have migrated from the cut ends of host bone. The most observable difference between the groups appeared in the mid region of the defect. In bare HASi groups, numerous osteoblast-like cells could be seen together with a portion of material. However, in HASi + C and HASi + CP, about 60-70% of that area was occupied by woven bone, in line with material degradation. The interconnected porous nature (50-500 mu m), together with the chemical composition of the HASi, facilitated the degradation of HASi, thereby opening up void spaces for cellular ingrowth and bone regeneration. The combination of HASi with cells and PRP was an added advantage that could promote the expression of many osteoinductive proteins, leading to faster bone regeneration and material degradation. Based on these results, we conclude that bare HASi can aid in bone regeneration but, with the combination of cells and PRP, the sequence of healing events are much faster in large segmental bone defects in weight-bearing areas in goats.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
