Comparative chronic in vitro toxicity of hexavalent chromium to osteoblasts and monocytes.


There is increasing concern regarding the long-term biological effects of exposure to low concentrations of metal ions, particularly chromium, in patients following implantation of metal-on-metal hip prostheses. To investigate this, we have evaluated the chronic in vitro response to clinically relevant concentrations of chromium VI in osteoblasts and… (More)
