The cellular responses to degradation products from titanium (Ti) implants are important indicators for the biocompatibility of these widely used implantable medical devices. The potential toxicity of nanoparticulate matter released from implants has been scarcely studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential of TiO2 nanoparticles to induce modifications characteristic for death by apoptosis and/or necrosis in U937 human monoblastoid cells. Suspensions of TiO2 nanoparticles… CONTINUE READING
