Orthopedic implant failures are often associated with peri-implant osteolysis. Particles generated from the wear process have been suspected to play an important role in this situation. Indeed, the peri-implant osteolysis could be due to the presence of particles stimulating the osteoclastogenesis process. We hypothesize then that the presence of a low(More)
The biophysical properties of the interaction between fibronectin and its membrane receptor were inferred from adhesion tests on living cells. Individual fibroblasts were maintained on fibronectin-coated glass for short time periods (1–16 s) using optical tweezers. After contact, the trap was removed quickly, leading to either adhesion or detachment of the(More)
