Effects of Silver Nanoparticles on the In Vitro Culture and Differentiation of Human Bone Marrow-Derived Mesenchymal Cells


Article Preview

The antibacterial properties of silver nanoparticles may be able to prevent inflammation around an implant when placed on the surface of the dental neck. The purpose of this study was to culture silver nanoparticles on human bone marrow stem cells in vitro to determine their effects on cell differentiation and to assess their biocompatibility. Silver nanoparticles were deposited on titanium foil implant surfaces using ion sputtering, and adult bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells were cultured on those surfaces to determine the effect of the silver nanoparticles on cell viability, suitability for subculture, proliferation and differentiation. The results indicated that the silver nanoparticles were biocompatible, allowing cell proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts, but interfered with differentiation into chondrocytes and adipocytes.
