Interactions of orthopaedic metals with an immortalized rat osteoblast cell line.


The toxicity of nickel, chromium (III) and (VI), vanadium and aluminium was compared in an immortalized neonatal rat osteoblast cell line using the MTT assay and a novel index of cytotoxicity, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity. Where toxicity was observed, ALP was a consistently more sensitive detection method than the MTT assay. The toxicity of the… (More)
