We developed PLA/β-TCP composites with a novel sintering method in order to enhance cellular interaction with matrices for bone regeneration. Thereafter, we confirmed the superior bone-forming characteristics of PLA/β-TCP cell-composite constructs resulting from greater surface exposure of the β-TCP particles, which may yield higher osteogenic and osteoconductive properties.
