Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) requires carriers for clinical effectiveness. In this study, whether porous beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP)-based ceramics are ideal carriers for rhBMP-2 was investigated. Hydroxyapatite (HA), β-TCP, TCP/HA (80 %/20 %), HA with rhBMP-2, TCP with rhBMP-2, and TCP/HA (80 %/20 %) with rhBMP-2 were(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the osseointegration of 4 different kinds of bioactive ceramic-coated screws with uncoated screws by biomechanical and histomorphometric analysis. Calcium pyrophosphate (CPP), apatite-wollastonite 1:3 glass ceramic (W3G), apatite-wollastonite 1:1 glass ceramic (WAG) and bioactive CaO-SiO2-B2O3 glass ceramic (CSG)(More)
Intervertebral disc spacers using bioactive ceramics have been used to treat degenerative spinal disease. Tooth-shaped spacers are commonly used to prevent migration, but there is a possibility of fracture when inserted or after insertion. Intervertebral disc spacers with either an isosceles triangle-shaped tooth (T1) or a right triangle-shaped tooth (T2)(More)
The sintering behavior of calcium pyrophosphate (CPP, Ca2P2O7)-doped beta-tricalcium phosphate [TCP, Ca3(PO4)2], prepared by solid state reaction, was investigated in-situ, using dilatometry. Pure beta-TCP undergoes phase transition to alpha-TCP at about 1200 degrees C; hence pure beta-TCP ceramics should be sintered bclow 1200 degrees C. Pure beta-TCP(More)
The sintering behavior, mechanical properties and biocompatibility of magnesia (MgO)-doped HA/TCP biphasic ceramics were studied. Pure HA/TCP ceramics showed poor sinterability due to the phase transformation of beta- to alpha-TCP. MgO-doped HA/TCP ceramics showed high density without any phase transformation of beta-TCP up to 1300 degrees C, for MgO(More)
Hydroxyapatite (HA) is an osteoconductive material used as a bone graft extender and demineralized bone matrix (DBM) has been used as a source of osteoinductive factors. A combination of DBM and HA is expected to create a composite with both osteoconductive and osteoinductive properties. This study examined the effect of a combination of DBM and HA on(More)
Novel bioactive and biodegradable glass ceramics with high mechanical strength in the (50-x/2)CaO. SiO(2)--xB(2)O(3) (4.2 < or = x < or = 17.2) system were investigated. The systems consisted of three phases: monoclinic wollastonite, calcium metaborate, and amorphous borosilicate matrix. The glass ceramics containing 4.2 mol% and 8.4 mol% B(2)O(3) showed(More)
beta-calcium pyrophosphate has been used as a bone-graft extender. The present study evaluated the toxicity from the subchronic administration of beta-calcium pyrophosphate to male and female Sprague-Dawley rats. Animals were divided into two groups consisting of 10 male and 10 female rats each and fed beta-calcium pyrophosphate extract (30 mg/kg body(More)
BACKGROUND A number of methods for coating implants with bioactive ceramics have been reported to improve osseointegration in bone, but the effects of bioactive ceramic coatings on the osseointegration of cancellous screws are not known. Accordingly, biomechanical and histomorphometric analyses of the bone-screw interface of uncoated cancellous screws and(More)
Apatite-wollastonite glass-ceramics have high mechanical strength, and CaO-SiO2 -B2 O3 glass-ceramics showed excellent bioactivity and high biodegradability. A new type of CaO-SiO2 -P2 O5 -B2 O3 system of bioactive glass-ceramics (BGS-7) was fabricated, and the effect and usefulness was evaluated via bioactivity using simulated body fluid and human(More)
