Bone regeneration using recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) in alveolar defects of primate mandibles.


The efficacy of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) for bone reconstruction has been widely studied in numerous animal experiments, but insufficient information exists about its ability to regenerate bone in primates. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of recombinant human BMP-2 (rhBMP-2) on bone formation in alveolar bone defects in the… (More)
