Effects of bioactive glass particles and their ionic products on intracellular concentrations.

Abstract : Numerous studies have described the bioactive properties of glass particles in the SiO(2)-CaO-Na(2)O-P(2)O(5) system. This kind of material is capable of developing a direct contact with bone through dissolution and physicochemical reactions. We have investigated the influence of bioactive particles, and ionic products from the same particles, on the intracellular concentrations in monocyte cells, which are among the first cells to colonize implantation sites. The only way to access these concentrations and particularly diffusible ionic concentrations (potassium, sodium, and chlorine) is to use cryomethods coupled to electron probe microanalysis. We have paid particular attention to the potassium:sodium ratio, the most sensitive criterion of viability. We have cultured cells with bioactive glass particles and in a conditioned medium obtained from the dissolution of the glass particles in the standard medium. Our study demonstrates that cells cultured in a conditioned medium are more active than cells cultured in a standard medium, or cells exposed to bioactive particles, and particles are more toxic for cells than are ionic products.
