In the search for methods to improve the biocompatibility of prosthetic materials, attention has recently been directed toward the potential use of surface chemical modification and its influence on cellular behavior. This in vitro study investigates the effect of surface chemistry modification of bioceramics on human bone-derived cells (HBDCs) grown on biomaterial surfaces for 2 weeks. Cells were cultured on either alumina (Al2O3), alumina doped with magnesium ions ([Mg]-Al2O3), or… CONTINUE READING
