Effect of Coating Titanium Implants with Silk on Osseointegration.

Qari, Maha.

Abstract: Available in-vitro data suggest that surface modeling of inert titanium with silk enhances its interaction with the biological environment. Furthermore, incorporating arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) peptides into silk might stimulate the adhesion of fibroblasts leading to an accelerated osseointegration. The purpose of this study was to test the effect of coating implants with RGD-d... read more
