The design and synthesis of porous phosphate-gelatine composite implant which mimicks the structure of natural bone and has drug delivery function is proposed. Gelatine reproducing the proteinaceous part of bone was cross-linked in order to modulate its solubility in the physiologic fluids. The kinetic of gelatine release from ceramic matrix was also evaluated as model of the release of any therapeutic compound which can be loaded into gelatine.
