The present investigation was performed to study the bioactivity of osteoinductive and osteoproliferative growth factors after release from biocompatible bone implants. Three types of porous carriers were used in this study: hydroxyapatite, alpha tricalcium phosphate, and a neutralized glass ceramic. Implants were loaded with recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2 (rh-BMP-2) and recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor (rh-bFGF) in a concentration of 2 microg/150 microL PBS each… CONTINUE READING
