The osteogenic precursor cell is likely a mesenchymal pluripotent stem cell with the ability to differentiate into bone.
Bioactive glass currently is considered one of the most biocompatible materials in the bone regeneration field due to its bioactivity, osteoconductivity (a scaffold's ability to support cell attachment and subsequent bone matrix deposition and formation) and osteoinductivity (a scaffold that encourages osteogenic precursor cells to differentiate into mature bone-forming cells).
