Results of preliminary investigations on varying the adhesion and growth behaviour of osteoblast-like cells on silicon are presented. Significant changes in growth behaviour are obtained by implanting oxygen or by growing a thermal oxide on the surface. The objective of the work is to modify tissue adhesion to materials used as prosthetic devices.
