According to a study from the Netherlands, "Porous polymeric scaffolds play a key role in most tissue-engineering strategies. A series of nondegrading porous scaffolds was prepared, based on bulk-copolymerisation of 1-vinyl-2-pyrrolidinone (NVP) and n-butyl methacrylate (BMA), followed by a particulate-leaching step to generate porosity."
"Biocompatibility of these scaffolds was evaluated in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, the scaffold materials were studied using the so-called demineralized bone matrix (DBM) as an evaluation system in vivo.
