Ti-6Al-7Nb promotes cell spreading and fibronectin and osteopontin synthesis in osteoblast-like cells.

The purpose of this study was to compare the early response of human osteoblast-like cells (SaOS-2) on commercially pure titanium (cpTi) and titanium-6-aluminium-7-niobium (Ti-6Al-7Nb) using glass slide as a control. In terms of cell attachment, no significance was observed when cells were seeded on the materials. However, morphological analysis by scanning… CONTINUE READING
