Abstract: Material surface-stimulated activation of the macrophage and the release of mediators has been suggested to be an important factor for inflammation and tissue regeneration around biomedical implants. Macrophage interactions with particles released from implants as well as macophage-bacteria interactions are also involved in implant loosening processes. The development of relevant in vitro models, which would allow a selective manipulation of biologic and implant components in a less complex envi... more
