The synergistic combination of the excellent bioactivity of mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBGs) and the pro-osteogenic potential of strontium ions represents a very promising approach for stimulating bone remodelling. The developed Sr-containing MBGs stimulated the precipitation of hydroxyapatite crystals, showed a reduced pro-inflammatory response, and were able to stimulate the expression of pro-osteogenic genes. These results will pave the way for the design of advanced systems for the treatment of bone pathologies, particularly in patients with osteoporosis. View this paper.
