Abstract

Three-dimensional composites of nanophase alumina and poly(L-lactic acid) with an interconnected porous network and an overall porosity in excess of 90% are cytocompatible. Osteoblast proliferation on the nanophase ceramic/polymer composites is a function of time of cell culture and of nanoceramic loading in the biomaterial substrates.
