Adhesion, growth and differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells on non-porous calcium carbonate and plastic substrata: Effects of dexamethasone and 1,25dihydroxyvitamin D3

Abstract:

Bone marrow contains stromal fibroblastic stem cells which have the potential to differentiate into bone-forming cells. Therefore addition of bone marrow to porous bone substitutes such as coral or coralline hydroxyapatite may be expected to enhance bone ingrowth into these implants. This study was designed to evaluate the possibility of growing human bone marrow stroma fibroblastic cells (HBMC) on a calcium carbonate substrate. For this purpose, HBMC were cultured for 20 days on plastic or c...
