Technical Specifications - MaioRegen:
Composition & Structure:
MaioRegen is a three-dimensional matrix which mimics the entire osteo- cartilaginous tissue: cartilage, tide-mark and sub-chondral bone. It is a monolithic, multi-layer scaffold: the superficial layer consists of deantigenated type I equine collagen and resembles the cartilaginous tissue, while the lower layer consists mostly of magnesium-enriched hydroxyapatite (Mg-HA), and simulates the sub-chondral bone structure.
The intermediate layer, composed of Mg-HA and collagen, reproduces the tide-mark. MaioRegen is obtained through a unique, patented process, the result of the cooperation between Finceramica and internationally recognized research centres.
Biomimetic is a substance recognised and accepted by the body as self, without triggering any immune response. The peculiar chemical composition and structure make MaioRegen a fully biomimetic scaffold. The "chemical" biomimetism is given by using collagen macromolecules and Mg-HA nanocrystals, combined through an innovative nucleation mechanism which resembles the biologic neo-ossification process. The "structural" biomimetism is given by the characteristic orientation of collagen fibres, organised as they would be within the human osteo-chondral tissue.
