    Abstract: In the present study, a novel bone implant (BI) was prepared using demineralized bone matrix (DBM) and hydroxyapatite (HA) isolated from Bluefin trevally (BT) bones, which was considered to be a marine industry food waste. Gelatin (GA) was used as a binder. Physico-chemical characterization and in vitro studies were carried out using this implant. ... Show More
