5 greater than the plain TAC. 14 times higher than the plain TAC. 119 Porous Scaffolds Good scaffolds for bone tissue engineering should be able to deliver cells while possessing good bioactivity, biodegradability, osteoconductivity, and mechanical properties. They should also have suitable porosity with larger pores to allow tissue ingrowth and new tissue vascularization and smaller pores to encourage protein adhesion as well as cell adhesion and proliferation. Bioactive glasses and glass–ceramics have become an important material for bone regeneration, since they possess excellent bioactivity, controllable biodegradability, osteoconductivity, and the ability to deliver cells.

Results showed that serum glucose levels after 30 min were substantially lower among those subjects who were administered xylose. Similarly, after 15 min, mean serum insulin was far lower in the test group. 57 With respect to diabetes specifically, coconut has also demonstrated significant anti-diabetic effects.
