Long term effect of the growing instability of the bone-implant interface due to bone resorption at the interface is a problem for the implants, including bioactive ceramics. Zn2+ -containing tricalcium phosphate (ZnTCP) is a material which may overcome this problem. The present study aims to clarify whether Zn2+ -containing tricalcium phosphate (ZnTCP) ceramics with a Zn2+ content of 0.316 (ZnTCP316) and 0.633 (ZnTCP633) wt % suppress resorption by mature osteoclasts in vitro.
