GEM 21S by Osteohealth – bioactive protein (highly purified recombinant human platelet-derived
growth factor, rhPDGF-BB) with an osteoconductive matrix (beta
tricalcium phosphate, β-TCP)
Emdogain by Straumann – enamel matrix proteins, most prevalent is amelogenin, should use EDTA on teeth root prior placing
Prefgel by Straumann – 24% EDTA (not protein but only use is with emdogain)
Infuse by Medtronic – rhBMP-2 (recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 2) and an absorbable collagen sponge (ACS)
Certain bone morphogenetic proteins, or BMPs, have been studied for decades because of their remarkable ability to heal bone and eliminate the need for bone graft harvesting from other parts of the body. Approximately 20 BMPs have been discovered, but only six appear capable of initiating bone growth. Of these, rhBMP-2 has been studied more than any other BMP and is FDA approved for use in certain spinal, tibial (leg) and oral surgeries.
rhBMP-2/ACS with cancellous bone and PRP is = autogenous but more edema 1
