Abstract

Localized and release-controlled delivery systems for the sustained expression of the biologic potency of rhBMPs are essential. A substantial number of biomaterials have been investigated thus far. Most fail after implantation or administration mainly due to either being too soft, difficult to control and/or stabilize mechanically. In the second part of this review, we review a representative selection of rhBMP-2 and rhBMP-7 carrier materials and delivery systems ranging from simple nano/microparticles to complex 3-D scaffolds in sites of orthopaedic and craniofacial bone regeneration and repair.
