Bioactive glasses (BGs) are amorphous materials exhibiting biocompatibility properties,gaining great interest as biomaterials for regenerative medicine. This work comprises twoparts. First, the bioactivity properties that fluoridated phosphate-based bioactive glasses(F-PBGs) exhibit once implanted, for dental repair applications, was studied. Second,the experimental design of cardiac patches, containing 45S5 bioactive glasses for cardiactissue engineering, was undertaken. [Continues.]
