Abstract : A composite bone repair agent consisting of the copolymer polylactide and polyglycolide was completed with an acidic phospholipid. The resulting material was biodegradable and biocompatible. This material was pieced into endochondral defects in rats. Histochemical and hisomorphometric data which indicated that the defects treated with the bone repair composite healed more rapidly than nontreated control wounds. (Author)
