Abstract

The effects on the proliferation and phenotype expression of osteoblasts by single or combined ions of magnesium (Mn), zinc (Zn) and flouride (Fl) which are released from the calcium phosphate (CaP) matrix were analyzed. The MG63 model of osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) was used to determine the effects of test biomaterials consisting of calcium phosphate matrixes (BCPs) on proliferation. It was found that all the materials tested significantly increased the proliferative capacity of osteoblast-like MG63 cells. It was also found that the biomaterials consisting of calcium phosphate matrixes are viable biomaterials for osteoporosis therapy and bone repair.
