Biomimetic Organic-Inorganic Nanocomposite Coatings for Titanium Implants. II. Biological "In Vitro" and "In Vivo" Characterization

Abstract:

Article Preview

Biological mineralization proceeds within an organic matrix and is induced and controlled by extracellular, highly acidic matrix macromolecules. Our group has recently prepared organic-inorganic nanocomposite coatings by a strategy that closely mimics these processes. The strategy involves depositing a matrix of polyelectrolyte multilayers (PE MLs), alternating with layers of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) particles, then "in situ" growing nanosized apatite crystals within that matrix [1, 2]. Here we describe the results of biological "in vitro" and "in vivo" testing of these materials.
