A group of ground-breaking American and Russian scientists, led by Dr. Terry Lowe, chief scientist at Manhattan Scientifics (MHTX) are taking Cold War weapons technology and repurposing it for peaceful use in medical prosthetics and dental implants.
Manhattan Scientifics holds exclusive licensed U.S. rights from Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Nanotitanium, a new FDA-approved super-
metal that is stronger than conventional metal alloys, integrates more quickly with human bone — and is expected to be more reliable, longer lasting and provide faster post-surgery healing.
Nanotitanium is the product of a collaboration of U.S. scientists at LANL and Russian weapons technology scientists who teamed together under direction from the U.S. Global Initiative for Proliferation Prevention at the U.S. Dept. of Energy.
On Thursday, the first FDA-approved dental implant made with nanotitanium was installed in Dr. Terry Lowe’s mouth, the scientist who helped develop it.
The dental procedure was followed by a press conference Friday to announce the official start of the production and sales of nanostructured titanium.
