UNLABELLED Patients are exposed internally to nanoparticles (NPs) by wear mechanisms associated with total joint arthroplasty. This tissue-specific retention implies that the biological evaluation of NPs shall be integrative and niche targeting. Here, we report that ceramic zirconia and silicon nitride NPs interfere with MG63 cells' function and remarkably… CONTINUE READING
