In-vitro tendon cell growth on synthetic fiber implant materials: Biological implications

John Ricci, H. Alexander

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The growth of tendon cell colonies on synthetic fiber materials used as soft tissue implants was compared to the growth of such cell colonies on flat plastic surfaces used as standard cell culture substrates. Fundamental differences in growth characteristics were observed, and a mathematical model was developed.
