Apatite-forming ability of glass-ceramic apatite-wollastonite - polyethylene composites: effect of filler content.

Abstract

The bioactivity of a range of glass-ceramic apatite-wollastonite (A-W) - polyethylene composites (AWPEXs) with glass-ceramic A-W volume percentages ranging from 10 to 50, has been investigated in an acellular simulated body fluid (SBF) with ion concentrations similar to those of human blood plasma. The formation of a biologically active apatite layer on the… (More)
