Histological and biochemical evaluation of osteoblasts cultured on bioactive glass, hydroxylapatite, titanium alloy, and stainless steel.

Abstract

We investigated the behavior of fetal rat osteoblasts cultured on four bone replacing materials: bioactive glass, hydroxylapatite, a titanium alloy, and stainless steel. The cultures were histologically examined for individual cell morphology and osteoblast expression after several periods of time using scanning electron, fluorescence, and normal light… (More)
