Abstract
The success or failure of a material when implanted in the body is greatly determined by the surface properties of the material and the host tissue reactions. The very first event that takes place after implantation is the interaction of soluble ions, molecules and proteins from the biological environment with the material surface leading to the formation of an adsorbed protein layer that will later influence cell attachment. In this context, the particular topography and surface charge of a mat...
