Metallic biomaterials are generally used for replacement of structural components of the human body such as bones, joints, and tooth roots. When they are implanted inside a body, metallic biomaterials may corrode and/or wear, releasing metal ions and debris which may have toxic effects on tissues and organs. Since it is important for biomaterials to have no toxicity against a living body, a systematic and quantitative evaluation of the cytotoxicity of metallic elements is required for the… CONTINUE READING
