Cellular proliferation and cytokine responses to polymethylmethacrylate particles in patients with a cemented total joint arthroplasty


Thein vitro response of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (MNC) from patients with cemented total hip or knee arthroplasties, and control individuals, to polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) was assessed by cell proliferation, cytokine production, and molecular techniques. After seven days in culture, a dose-dependent proliferative response to PMMA stimulation… (More)
