Walters Nick , Hulsart-Billstrom Gry , Engqvist Hakan , Larsson Sune

Introduction: A BMP-2-containing premixed calcium phosphate cement (PCPC) could potentially provide the surgeon with an easy-to-handle alloplastic material with osteoinductive properties, accelerating bone ingrowth by stimulating osteogenic differentiation.Methods: The release profile of BMP-2 at 0.05 and 0.50 mg/ml from the PCPC was characterized over a period of 1 week using ELISA.Results: The PCPC released BMP-2 in a biphasic ma...
