Initial Attachment of MC3T3-E1 Cells on Nano-HAp Surfaces

Abstract:

Article Preview

The initial osteoblast like cell response to bioactive nano-sized hydroxyapatite (HAp) and bioinert zirconia was evaluated with the cell morphology by SEM and cell adhesion proteins by fluorescence microscopy. Surface roughness also measured by a confocal laser microscopy. The surface roughness and topography was almost identical among specimens. The nano-sized HAp specimens showed better initial cell adhesion and activity than bioinert zirconia ceramics.
