The use of magnesium and its alloys as biodegradable metallic implant materials requires that their corrosion behavior can be controlled. We tailored the Mg release kinetics and cell adhesion properties of commercially pure Mg by chemical surface treatments in simulated body fluid, in Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's cell culture medium in the presence or absence of fetal bovine serum (FBS), or in 100% FBS. HeLa cells were cultured for 24 h on these Mg surfaces to characterize their biocompatibility… CONTINUE READING
