dc.description.abstract CSIR researchers have developed an injectable, resorbable soft tissue bulking product that has potential applications in fields ranging from heart and recontructive surgery, to minimally invasive cosmetic surgery. Biomaterials research is very relevant to developing nations, especially due to the high injury-related burden of disease and defects due to insufficient pre-natal care amongst the poor and disadvantaged. This research focuses on producing a locally-manufactured resorbable biopolymeric particle system for use in soft tissue augmentation. This research has resulted in a patent application that has received a positive international preliminary report on patentability that will facilitate the eventual commercialisation of this unique product. en
