Fractures difficult consolidation and large bone defects are associated with a substantial physical incapacity to the affected individuals and the high socio-economic costs, constituting a major challenge to clinical medicine. Thereby, it is necessary research in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering which aims to develop innovative technologies that promote bone regeneration and accelerate the healing process of the fracture, for use in the health system, in order to reduce costs and reduce the morbidity and mortality related to complications in the consolidation process. Thus, this study aims to evaluate the effects of the bioglass/collagen scaffold enriched with mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) on bone defect repair process. To achieve this objective, detailed studies will be carried on the effects of the bioglass/collagen scaffolds on the adhesion, proliferation and differentiation of MSCs in vitro and the action of this material in combination with MSCs on tissue regeneration in a model of bone defect in vivo. Given the above, it is expected that the development of this project will result in economic benefits and hence social for the Brazilian population, since the investigation of the effects of the combination of MSCs with bioglass/collagen scaffold on bone tissue may determine the development of more effective and safer treatments, which may result in the use of new technological resources in the health system.
