The effect of sericin application over hydroxyapatite surface on osteoblast cells proliferation

Abstract

Hydroxyapatite (HA) has been used clinically to treat bone defect. Modification of HA surface with respect to bone integration has been developed using treatments which have the potential to improve cells proliferation. Bombyx mori's sericin, a polymer protein that has polar side groups, have been known to accelerate cells attachment and proliferation. The… (More)
