Collagen has been widely used as biomaterials for its excellent biocompatibility and the potential to guide tissue regeneration. Based on the inducing regeneration concept, collagen/biphasic calcium phosphate microspheres (BCP) were prepared by utilising emulsion polymerisation and the intrinsic self-assembly of collagen. The bioactivity of the micro collagen/BCP composites was preliminarily evaluated by in vitro co-culture with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and the results indicated that the composites can provide an appropriate environment for the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of MSCs and have a potential clinical application in the bone tissue engineering field. 漏 2012 The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
