Bone bonding in bioactive glass ceramics combined with a new synthesized agent TAK-778.

Abstract

We studied the stimulatory effects of TAK-778, a new synthetic 3-benzothiepin derivative that promotes osteoblast differentiation, in the bonding of bone to bioactive glass ceramic implants in rabbit tibiae. Smooth-surfaced, rectangular plates (15 x 10 x 2 mm) made of apatite-wollastonite-containing glass ceramic were implanted bilaterally into the proximal… (More)
