Study type: Medical/biological study (experimental study)

Effect of magnetic field on the fibronectin adsorption, cell attachment and proliferation on titanium surface. med./bio.

Published in: Clin Oral Implants Res 2005; 16 (5): 557-562

Aim of study (acc. to author)

To study the effect of magnetic field on the adsorption of specific recombinant fibronectin peptide (hFNIII9-10) on the titanium surface and hFNIII9-10 mediated cell attachment and cell proliferation.

Background/further details

Fibronectin is a major extracellular matrix component used by many cell types as a substrate for attachment.

Main outcome of study (acc. to author)

The amount of adsorbed hFNIII9-10 showed no significant difference between control (0 mT) and six experimental groups (1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 10 mT). However, TE-85 cells attached significantly higher in groups of 1, 2, 5, 10 mT than in control group. Cell attachment in groups of 3 and 7 mT showed no significant difference compared to control group. TE-85 cells were observed to attach through filopodia. 1 mT stimulated cells showed significantly higher cell proliferation than those in 2, 3, and 7 mT.
Magnetic fields under 10 mT did not influence fibronectin adsorption on the titanium surface. However, a significant effect was revealed on cell attachment and cell proliferation.
