Complications associated with the use of autogenous bone in the repair or replacement of tissue lost through injury or disease have driven the search for alternative sources of graft material. Bioceramics containing hydroxyapatite (HA), tricalcium phosphate (TCP), or composites that combine the best properties of both of these materials are among the principal candidates. In this study, we have investigated the in vitro proliferation, morphology, and viability of an immortalized rat osteoblast… CONTINUE READING
