Background Biological hydroxyapatite (HA), has several mechanical and physical advantages over the commercially available synthetic apatite (CAP-HA). The aim of this in vivo study was to investigate the effect of osteoinductive bone-like hydroxyapatite obtained from simulated body fluid (SBF) combined with osteoinductive boron (B) on bone healing.
