The four essential properties in bone reconstruction--osteoconduction, osteoinduction, osteogenesis and osteopromotion (Ripamonti et al., 2001) are related to autogenous grafts, the gold standard in reconstruction.
This hydrogel-based bioactive system could mimic the effect of red bone marrow in the marrow cavity of cancellous bone, thus endowing the artificial bone with spatial and all-dimensional angioinduction and osteoinduction properties.{Figure 4}
(3) Bioactive ceramics such as hydroxyapatite (HA) are helpful in the restoration of the bone with satisfying osteoinduction, osteocompatibility, and osteoconduction properties (34) without triggering a considerable immune response.
If, in fact, cells within the autograft provide both osteogenesis and osteoinduction, then maybe using higher concentrations of osteogenic cells may result in better fracture union than autograft itself.
MG63 cells were seeded on 24-well plates with a density of 7 x [10.sup.4] per well on four groups, and the activity of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) was determined on the 7th and 14th days of osteoinduction. The level of ALP was normalized to total protein content at the end of the experiment.
It promotes osteoinduction and bone formation when incorporated with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) [16, 17].
The three fundamental properties of bone regeneration are osteogenesis, osteoinduction, and osteoconduction.
For example, some have poor mechanical properties and display limited osteoinduction in the clinic [16, 17].
After 1, 3, and 5 days of osteoinduction, the cells were incubated with CCK-8 solution (consisting of 90% growth medium and 10% CCK-8) for 3 h at 37[degrees]C.
