Abstract

A study was conducted to determine the hypothesis that 45S5 bioglass surfaces support the viability and proliferation of human bone cells. The results were in agreement with previous studies with animal cell lines and with other formulations of bioglass. The observation that cobalt chrome alloy is a less favorable surface for osteoblast-like cells may be related to its smoother surface or to the leaching of toxic ions. Bioglass was able to support human bone cell proliferation in tissue culture and may have clinical applications as an implant coating for promoting bony ingrowth in uncemented prostheses.
