bone morphogenetic proteins

bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP),

a family of intracellular glycoproteins that induce new bone formation. These proteins influence bone remodeling, fracture healing, bone graft, integration and heterotopic calcification. Recombinant DNA technology has made BMPs available for various applications (for example, spinal fusion, management of fractures).

The combination of surface topographies is designed to create an optimal host-bone response and actively participate in the fusion process by promoting the up-regulation of osteogenic and angiogenic factors necessary for bone growth, encouraging natural production of bone morphogenetic proteins, and "creating the potential for a faster and more robust fusion," the company claims.

This monograph is a summary of basic principles for bone repair and bone grafts for autografts, allografts and graft substitutes and includes coverage of the biology of bone grafts, demineralized bone matrix and synthetic bone graft substitutes, the role of bone morphogenetic proteins, bone marrow and bone marrow products as osteogenic aids, massive allograft transplantation following tumor resection, spinal fusion, allografts in adult hip and knee reconstruction, novel options and bone graft decision making.
The process of demineralization apparently releases bone morphogenetic proteins from the bone matrix, allowing these potent factors to induce stromal cells in the adjacent tissue to differentiate along osteoblast lineage.
