Cell attachment on ion implanted titanium surface
Sreejith, P. S. & Yarlagadda, Prasad K. (2008) Cell attachment on ion implanted titanium surface. In Yarlagadda, Prasad K. & Gudimetla, Prasad V. (Eds.) 9th Global Congress on Manufacturing and Management, 12-14 November 2008, Gold Coast, Australia.
Of outmost importance for the successful use of an implant is a good adhesion of the surrounding tissue to the biomaterial. In addition to the surface composition of the implant, the surface topography also influences the properties of the adherent cells. In the present investigation, ion implanted and untreated surfaces were compared for cell adhesion and spreading. The surface topography of the surfaces were analyzed using AFM and the cell studies with SEM. The results of our present investigation is indicative of the fact that ion implanted titanium surface offer better cell binding affinity compared to untreated/polished surface.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
