New Findings from S.W. Yoon and Co-Authors Describe Advances in Connective Tissue Cells (Improving the Osteoblast Cell Adhesion on Electron Beam Controlled TiO2 Nanotubes)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- Investigators publish new report on Connective Tissue Cells. According to news reporting originating from Gyeonggi Do, South Korea, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Here we investigate the osteogenesis and synostosis processes on the surface-modified TiO2 nanotubes via electron beam irradiation. The TiO2 nanotubes studied were synthesized by anodization process under different anodizing voltage."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research, "For the anodization voltage of 15, 20, and 25 V, TiO2 nanotubes with diameters of 59, 82, and 105 nm and length of 115, 276, and 310 nm were obtained, respectively. MC3T3-E1 osteoblast cell line was incubated on the TiO2 nanotubes to monitor the change in the cell adhesion before and after the electron beam irradiation. We observe that the electron beam irradiation affects the number of surviving osteoblast cells as well as the cultivation time."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "In particular, the high adhesion rate of 155% was obtained when the osteoblast cells were cultivated for 2 hours on the TiO2 nanotube, anodized under 20 V, and irradiated with 5,000 kGy of electron beam."
