Manhattan Scientifics Inc., announces that University of New Mexico Tech Biology professor Dr. Rebecca Reiss has published new research that sheds light on how titanium implants interact with human tissue, potentially paving the way for a new generation of medical inserts that last longer.
The main thrust of this new research is that the smaller grain size of the titanium used in medical implants promotes growth of cells. They are specifically looking at how preosteoblast cells – or bone forming cells – grow when in contact with titanium.
“We’ve found that we get more cells that are bigger and healthier on ultra-fine grain titanium versus coarse grain” Reiss said.
