New Cell Proliferation Findings from Banaras Hindu University Outlined (Enhanced Osteoblast Proliferation and Corrosion Resistance of Commercially Pure Titanium Through Surface Nanostructuring by Ultrasonic Shot Peening and Stress Relieving)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Fresh data on Cell Proliferation are presented in a new report. According to news reporting out of Uttar Pradesh, India, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "This investigation was carried out to study the effect of a novel process of surface modification, surface nanostructuring by ultrasonic shot peening, on osteoblast proliferation and corrosion behavior of commercially pure titanium (c p-Ti) in simulated body fluid. A mechanically polished disc of c p-Ti was subjected to ultrasonic shot peening with stainless steel balls to create nanostructure at the surface."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Banaras Hindu University, "A nanostructure (

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Thus, the surface of c p-Ti, modified by this novel process, possessed a unique quality of enhancing cell proliferation as well as the corrosion resistance and could be highly effective in reducing treatment time of patients adopting dental and orthopedic implants of titanium and its alloys."
