Impact of bone diseases and injury is increasing at an enormous rate during the past decades due to increase in road traffic accidents and other injuries. Bioactive glasses have excellent biocompatibility and osteoconductivity that makes it suitable for bone regeneration. Researches and studies conducted on several bioactive glasses gives an insight on the need of multi -disciplinary approaches involving various scientific fields to attain its full potential. Of late, a next generation bioactive glass called as mesoporous bioactive glass (MBG) has been developed with higher specific surface area and control over mesoporous structure that presents a new material for bone regeneration. A brief discussion and overview on the potential use of MBG as a suitable material for bone tissue regeneration and biomolecule delivery is included. Additionally, possible control of the structural and functional property based on composition and fabrication techniques are also covered. According to recent researches, MBG-implant interaction with bone forming cells for cellular growth and differentiation as well as its effect on delivery of growth factor, both in vitro and in vivo, are optimistic; yet, the complete efficacy of this material is still to be explored. Hence, in this article we will review the current development and its applications for bone tissue engineering (TE).
