In vitro testing of the potential for orthopedic bone cements to cause apoptosis of osteoblast-like cells.


The purpose of this study was to investigate in vitro the apoptosis- and/or necrosis-inducing potential of polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)-based bone cements for prosthetic surgery. Four bone cements widely used in orthopedics were tested as extracts onto osteoblast-like MG-63 cells and for comparison, HL-60 cells, which are remarkably sensitive to apoptotic… (More)
