Future Opportunities for Glass in Healthcare

Opportunities for glasses in healthcare are diverse, as the scientific community better understands how this special class of materials interacts on a cellular level. New applications of flexible water-soluble glasses are healing previously non-healing soft tissue wounds. The field of orthopedics is seeing increases in the use of 3D scaffolds made of bioactive glasses to improve bone-grafting products. Glasses are in development as coatings or additives to eliminate biofilm formation on medical devices while other compositions are treating inoperable cancers.
