Bioactive glasses are the materials of choice in the field of bone regeneration. Antioxidant properties of interest to limit inflammation and foreign body reactions have been conferred to bioactive glasses by the addition of appropriate ions (such as Ce or Sr). On the other hand, the antioxidant activity of bioactive glasses without specific ion/molecular doping has been occasionally cited in the literature but never investigated in depth. In the present study, three silica-based bioactive glasses have been developed and characterized for their surface properties (wettability, zeta potential, chemical composition, and reactivity) and radical scavenging activity in the presence/absence of cells. For the first time, the antioxidant activity of simple silica-based (SiO2-CaO-Na2O) bioactive glasses has been demonstrated.
