Although various promising strategies have been proposed for the delivery of BMP-2 for bone regeneration, there is currently no ideal system out on the market. Proper handling and detection of BMP-2 are two factors that are commonly overlooked, resulting in inaccurate characterization of BMP-2 delivery systems. In this work we employed radiolabeling with 125I in an attempt study the growth factor release from a hydrogel system both in vitro and in vivo. BMP-2 (InductOs, Pfizer) was radiolabeled using a modified chloramine-T method and adsorption to sample tubes was studied at different times and temperatures. In vitro release of BMP-2 was compared to the ALP expression. In vivo release was correlated to bone formation in an intramuscular ectopic model in male Sprague–Dawley rats. The results showed that Protein LoBind tubes exhibited the lowest BMP-2 adsorption. Both release studies resulted in a biphasic profile of biologically active BMP-2. Mineralization was observed in vivo after 8 days, with increasing mineral volume and mineral content until day 14. The study confirmed the superiority of radiolabeling over conventional methods such as ELISA, as well as the importance of cautions handling and reliable quantification techniques for successful design of BMP-2 delivery systems
