UNLABELLED Biomaterial surface properties including chemistry, topography, and wettability regulate cell response. Previous studies have shown that increasing surface roughness of metallic orthopaedic and dental implants improved bone formation around the implant. Little is known about how implant surface properties can affect immune cells that generate a wound healing microenvironment. The aim of our study was to examine the effect of surface modifications on macrophage activation and cytokine… CONTINUE READING
