Histological and biochemical evaluation of osteogenic response in porous hydroxyapatite coated alumina ceramics.


We compared the osteogenic response in porous alumni (Al) and hydroxyapatite coated porous alumni ceramic (HA/Al) by grafting rat bone marrow cells with these implants subcutaneously in the back of syngeneic rats. The ceramics did not show any bone formation without marrow, but did when combined with marrow cells. The osteogenesis in HA/Al began directly on… (More)
