A new unique biomaterial for the treatment of osteoporosis was developed by a research team with the participation of biologists from Samara University named after S.P. Queen. According to the authors of the development, the use of such material in practice will allow to restore not only the lost mineral components of bone tissue, but also organic ones. The research results are published in the Journal of Optical Technology.
