Oxide nanowires made by simple process promote bone ingrowth, faster healing

By Jim Destefani / August 9, 2013

Researchers at The Ohio State University, Columbus, have developed a simple, affordable technique for creating oxide nanowires they say can improve cell growth by nearly 80 percent compared with other surfaces. (The transmission electron micrograph above shows cell growth 15 hours after placement on a nanowire-coated titanium alloy surface. Inset at upper left shows filaments…
