Demineralized bone matrix (DBM)-calcium phosphate cement (CPC) composites were subjected to cellular test of osteogenic potentials and implantation in animal model. The expression of osteogenic marker gene from mouse preosteoblast cell line MC3T3-E1 adhered to the DBM-CPC composite was much higher than plain CPC. In addition, the DBM-CPC composite implanted nude mice revealed osteoinduction between the implanted composite and adjacent tissues, whereas the plain CPC induced osteoconduction.
