In Vivo Analysis of Bioactivity of Borate Glass
The 45S5 glass were implanted in the tibia of rats to assess the bioactive potential of the borate-based glass in comparison with the 45S5 control samples. Areas of new bone formation were detectable by difference in gray denisty in SEM-BSE images, as indicated by the arrows. Tibia with implanted particles of CABAL-17 borate glass, a bioinert material that does not convert to HAp, did not exhibited the intimate, surface-attached presence of newly formded bone. The results showed that the H6b composition borate-based glass behaved as a bioactive material in vivo similar to 45S5 glass.
