Title
Action of FGMgCO3Ap-collagen composite in promoting bone formation
Abstract

To improve the biological properties of materials as bone substitutes, functionally graded CO3 apatite crystals containing magnesium, FGMgCO3Ap, were synthesized to be mixed with atelocollagen and made into a composite pellet. A radio-labeled cell adhesion experiment showed that the degree of adherence of mouse MC3T3E1 osteoblast-like cells to the FGMgCO3Ap-collagen composite was better than to CO3Ap-collagen and much better than to the Ti plate. When the composites were implanted beneath the periosteum cranii of rats, the FGMgCO3Ap-collagen composite was metabolized faster than the CO3Ap-collagen composite and better formation of new bone and osteoblast arrangement at the interface between the composite and the periosteum cranii was observed. When the composites were implanted into the femur of rabbits, clear bone formation with a higher degree of bone density was observed for the FGMgCO3Ap-collagen composite. These results suggest that the Mg2+ ions taken into the apatite crystals may contribute to the acceleration of osteoblast adhesion to apatites and promote bone formation, cross-talking with osteoblasts at the molecular level.
