Nanocluster Proteins Improve Adhesion of Titanium Bone Implants, Georgia Tech Study

Published: Aug 24, 2010

MedGadget -- Scientists at Georgia Tech have developed a nanocluster protein coating to be used on titanium implants that creates a substantially stronger bond with the human body than bare metal. The clusters seem to promote bone growth around the implants by manipulating the biological signals that trigger stem cells to differentiate into bone tissue.
