Abstract: CaTiO(3) is a strong candidate to form at the interface between hydroxylapatite (HA) and titanium implants during many coating procedures. However, few studies have compared the cytocompatibility properties of CaTiO(3) to HA pertinent for bone-cell function. For this reason, the objective of the present in vitro study was to determine the ability of bone-forming cells (osteoblasts) to adhere on titanium coated with HA that resulted in the formation of CaTiO(3). To accomplish the formation of CaTiO(3), titanium…
