In the past 40 years, the efforts of regenerative medicine researchers were focused on the development of non-biodegradable materials resembling bone features. Bioactive glasses which enhance osteogenesis and angiogenesis has gained more attention in biomedical engineering. Sol-gel derived bioactive glasses compared to melt-derived glasses have more fine porous textures and also are remarkably more bioactive with the same composition. In the present study, 58S/Manganese (III) oxide bioglass powders were synthesized by the sol-gel method. Then the bioactivity of the synthesized composite glasses was evaluated by soaking powders in simulated body fluid (SBF) for 14 days. The results showed that the composite of 58S/Manganese (III) oxide was bioactive.
