Iran Starts Studies to Commercialize Bio-Implants.

Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Mines and Industries Minister Ali Akbar Mehrabian announced on Sunday that the country's scientists have started studies for the mass-production of the country's home-made bio-implants.

"Research activities have started to commercialize four new types of bio-implants," Mehrabian said, adding that mass-production of these products will soon begin in the country.The minister reminded that the technical know-how for the production of bio-implants was formerly possessed by just a few European and American companies, and that Iranian scientists managed to break this monopoly by manufacturing the medical-industrial product.Mehrabian also announced that the Iranian authorities have issued the necessary permissions for the export of the country's bio-implants and the product will soon be exported to the other countries, specially the Muslim states, after meeting domestic needs at home.Iran officially inaugurated the world's first center for the mass-production of optical bio-implants earlier this month.Producing optical bio-implants would be a revolution in Iran's ophthalmology and bio-implant application as the country would be the first state which has succeeded to start mass production of the device. Mass production of the optical bio-implants would be a great help in treatment of optical diseases with major advantages, including no need for anesthesia during a surgery and having no more local bleeding or other side effects during the treatment period of chronic optical diseases. The US has recently discovered the technical know-how for producing bio-implants but it has not succeeded yet to start the mass production of the devices.
