Press release about the PANBioRA project

Appropriate selection of the implant biomaterial is a key factor for long term success of implants. The biologic environment does not accept completely any material. Implantation of medical devices within the body initiates a series of reactions, collectively called the foreign body response, which aims to eliminate or isolate the implanted foreign material from the host immune system.
