INTRODUCTION This study deals with the ingrowth behaviour of biomaterials (hydroxyapatite, cp-titanium, cobalt-chromium-molybdenum and PAEK) in relationship to the immunological competence in an animal model. Measured were the production of extracellular matrix (ECM) after implantation in non-immunocompetent naked mice and immunocompetent wild mice. Intention of the trial was to find out if either the immunological competence or the duration of implantation influences the quantity of produced… CONTINUE READING
