bioglass

(bī'ō-glas),
A fused silica-containing aluminum oxide that has a surface-reactive glass film compatible with tissues; used as a surface coating in some types of medical and dental implants.
A type of bioactive glass (45S5 glass), composed of calcium salts, phosphorous, sodium salts and silicates—essential elements of mineralized bone—which bonds with bone and promotes bone regeneration
Indications Mandibular augmentation, repair of damaged middle ear
Pros Low bioactivity
Cons Mechanical weakness, low fracture resistance

(It is submitted that the list of the published articles available on the Pubmed database were extracted using the key words "Osteogenesis and Bioglass" on 3rd April, 2015 followed by extraction of the full text articles from different sources and then thorough review of all the articles was done in 4 months' time period (from April to July 2015) to reproduce this manuscript.
Review of biocompatibility behavior of bioglass as promising material in biomedical industry
Taking into consideration the nanometric size of the bioglass used in this research, higher surface area is imposed to the outside environment (including cells and intra-tissue liquids), and the bioactivity increases.
