Research Article: Human mesenchymal stem cell behavior on femtosecond laser-textured Ti-6Al-4V surfaces

Written by Nanomedicine

An overarching theme of the Nanomedicine Special Focus Issue on ‘Engineering the nanoenvironment for regenerative medicine’ is the regulation of cellular function through nanotopographical modification. The role of nanotopographical modification in the osteointegration of titanium and titanium alloys is further explored by Cunha et al. who investigate ultrafast laser-surface texturing as a surface treatment of Ti-6Al-4V alloy dental and orthopedic implants to improve the osteoblastic commitment of human mesenchymal stem cells. Aim: The aim of the present work was to investigate ultrafast laser surface texturing as a surface treatment of Ti-6Al-4V alloy dental and orthopedic implants to improve osteoblastic commitment...
