Abstract: It is known that tissues surrounding the site of an implanted prosthetic alloy are exposed to increased concentrations of the metals comprising the alloy. However, the exact identity and concentration of such metallic products are usually unknown, thus limiting the possibilities for quantifying any observed toxicological response to the metals. This report describes some of the effects of increased concentrations (7.5-30 microgram/ml; 1-5 x 10(-4)M) Of cobalt (as CoCl2.6H2O) and of nickel (NiCl2.6H2O) on the g…
