Prof. Aldo R. Boccaccini provided insights on the use of bioactive glasses in medical applications, particulary in soft tissue repair, which appeared in an excellent article by April Gocha and Lisa McDonald, entitled “Better bodies with biomaterials”, published in the December 2020 issue of the Bulletin of the American Ceramic Society. Prof. Boccaccini said: “this year, we celebrate 50 years of bioactive glasses, the material discovered by Prof. Larry Hench at University of Florida, in 1971. This article in Ceramic Bulletin highlights the enormous contribution of bioceramics to medicine over the years, including bioactive glasses, covering a wide range of applications in almost all parts of the body, as traditional and advanced implants and in regenerative medicine.”
