Abstract

The effects of bioglass on tissue cells involved on inflammation and osteolysis were evaluated by exposure of cells to wear debris. Particulate bioglass was found to have minimal effect on the proliferation of osteoblasts, synoviocytes, and macrophages cells. The ability of macrophages and synoviocytes to proliferate was not affected upon exposure to bioglass. The low cytotoxicity of bioglass for the three cell types could be used as an implant coating.
