We constructed the composite in vitro using the injectable injectable CPC (ICPC), fibrin sealant (FS) and bone morphogenic protein (BMP) and injected this composite into thigh muscle pouches of mice and vertebral bodies of New Zealand white rabbits to observe short- and long-term imaging and histological changes; additionally, the composite with PMMA in biomechanical performance was also compared to investigate the feasibility of the composite in vertebroplasty.
PMMA elevates the resistance of the PLA component to hydrolysis from ultraviolet radiation, and chemical resistance is much improved as compared to traditional acrylics.
PMMA is mainly used in LCD (liquid crystal display) TVs, light emitting diodes (LEDs), and ion-screening technologies.

The breakthrough here is the ability to put a conformal coat of PMMA on a nanowire over long distances.
PMMA is composed by microspheres in a non-protein vehicle, which produces permanent results.
Tambien se han reportado sensores de vapores organicos producidos con laminas de PMMA con MWNTs funcionalizados.
Improvement also was found in the scores for the Rhythm subtest of PMMA, although they were still below the scores for the normative population.
