IIT scientists use ijad's silk mat to cure arthritis

Biman B Mandal, from IIT Guwahati, said that to develop this option, scientists also included those from University College London in the UK who monitor the original bone-cartilage interface.

Scientists at IIT Guwahati have prepared an artificial mat made of silk-protein and bio-active glass fiber. Scientists believe that this mat will benefit arthritis patients by increasing bone cells.

It is claimed that this mat can repair the bones of the worn out joints in arthritis patients. Mostly this disease affecting the joints in the knee, ax, hands, feet and spinal cord is also known as bone and cartilage joint disorder. Without treatment, it can cause severe pain, swelling. Which makes it difficult to move.

Biman B Mandal, from IIT Guwahati, said that to develop this option, scientists also included those from University College London in the UK who monitor the original bone-cartilage interface. Also they try to artificially make them in laboratory conditions

He told that bone and joint disease is the most common in India. However, Mandal noted that the current clinical diagnosis is very expensive. Mandal said that scientists used a variety of silk easily found in northeast India for matting. He told, Muga Assam Silk has such qualities that work to remove the sick fast. However, right now this mat will be used on animals.
