Neodent USA Contests Nobel Biocare’s Allegations of Patent Infringement in the USA

In response to the recent announcement made by Nobel Biocare Holding AG, Neodent USA said today that it intends to vigorously defend itself against Nobel’s allegations of patent infringement relating to one of its range of implants.

George Winter Award

George Winter Award | Bone regeneration, biologics & orthopaedics, news & updates | Scoop.it

The ESB Council will choose an International Scientist who has contributed significantly to the knowledge in the field of biomaterial

s and/or the material controlled or influenced reactions within the host body through basic, experimental and/or clinical research. The work concerned and the results must have been published. This award is established to recognise, encourage and stimulate outstanding research contributions to the field of biomaterials and is presented annually during the Biomaterials conference of the Society, and consists of a certificate, a plaque and a refund of the registration fee and travelling expenses to the conference.


The 2014 George Winter Award will be presented to Guy Daculsi, of the University of Nantes.

Professor Daculsi is Director of Research class Exceptional at INSERM, National Institute for Medical Research and Director of the SC3M Electron Microscopic, Microimaging and Microcharacterization Center of Nantes University.

His work has mainly focused on the process of mineralization and developing models for the mineral phase of calcified tissues.

In 1984, Guy Daculsi made a thematic change to Biomaterials, and particularly Bioceramics. He directed research on calcium phosphate synthesis in order to model the process of mineralization, but also to develop research on substitute materials for calcified tissues, particularly calcium phosphate synthesis. He was a pioneer in this field in France, developing an original concept of artificial bone, the Biphasic Calcium Phosphate Concept.

In 1989, Guy Daculsi created the Nantes University Research Center on Calcified Tissues and Biomaterials. The activity of the laboratory was supported by INSERM and also by the CNRS. After 16 years of management of the research center for Materials of Biological Interest, the laboratory became UMR INSERM U791, Laboratory Osteoarticular and Dental Tissue Engineering.

He developed a theme of original research relevant to the physio-pathology of calcified tissues at the level of mineral phases, particularly the degradation and dissolution by specialized cells. These studies and models developed are closely associated with the design, development and study of mineral phases used as synthetic bone and dental substitutes.

Degenerative osteoarticular disease, native defects and spinal deformities, trauma, bone tumors of the musculoskeletal system require to varying degrees, bone grafts. The original work on the concept of biphasic calcium phosphate bioceramics (BCP) associating the chemistry and micro and macroporous structure as a Bioceramic. BCP is a synthetic biomimetic bone substitute, totally absorbable, which gradually turns into natural bone.

His International contributions to the field of Bioceramics and Bone substitutes has been recognized at a major scientific distinction IUSBSE World (International Union of Societies for Biomaterials Science and Engineering) of the 8th World Congress on Biomaterials in 2008 in Amsterdam.

During the World Biomaterials Congress in 2008, he was awarded Fellow of the world federation of Biomaterials scientific societies (Fellow in Biomaterials Science and Engineering, FBSE). Guy Daculsi served on the executive Board of ESB, before being Chari of the 20th annual conference of the ESB in 2006.
