Microfibrous borate bioactive glass dressing sequesters bone-bound bisphosphonate in the presence of simulated body fluid

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ion exchange occurs between borate bioactive glass and simulated body fluid. Borate bioactive glass dressings may be used for managing bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw through the formation of a complex incorporating leached calcium and borate ions and sequestered bone-bound bisphosphonates.
