Surface functionalisation of magnesium alloys for use as bio-implants
thesisposted on 2014-07-01, 00:00 authored by Dolly Mushahary
Magnesium-based alloys containing appropriate quantities of Strontium can induce optimal bone formation. Surface modification of these alloys with Collagen-I increased mineral deposition on the peri-implant surface over shorter periods of time as compared to the unmodified alloys, indicating the role of Collagen-I and Strontium concentration in bone resorption and remodelling.
