Nanocrystalline diamond (NCD) has a great potential for prosthetic implants coating. Nevertheless, its biocompatibility still has to be better understood. To do so, we employed several materials characterization techniques (SEM, AFM, micro-Raman spectroscopy) and cell culture assays using MG63 osteoblast-like and human bone marrow cells.

Two glass ceramics in the CaO--P2O5--MgO system with the incorporation of K2O or TiO2 oxides were prepared with the goal of using them as potential bone graft substitutes. The incorporation of TiO2 and K2O led to the preparation of specific crystalline phases in the structure of the glass ceramics, which show different degrees of biodegradation. In fact,(More)
