70S30C sol–gel bioactive glasses induce murine MC3T3-E1 pre-osteogenic cells to proliferate in response to ionic dissolution products and promote surface remodelling by deposition of mineralized osteoid in vitro. C7 macrophages also differentiate into TRAP+ve osteoclasts forming distinctive resorption pits and endothelial cells form tube-like structures. Thus 70S30C foams are excellent candidates for vascularised bone regeneration studies.
