Abstract

Biological performance of artificial implant materials is closely related to their surface characteristics, such as microtopography, and composition. Therefore, convenient fabrication of artificial implant materials with a cell-friendly surface structure and suitable composition was of great significance for current tissue engineering. In this work, titanate materials with a nanotubular structure were successfully fabricated through a simple chemical treatment. Immersion test in a simulated body fluid and in vitro cell culture were used to evaluate the biological performance of the treated samples. The results demonstrate that the titanate layer with a nanotubular structure on Ti substrates can promote the apatite-inducing ability remarkably and greatly enhance cellular responses. This highlights the potential of such titanate biomaterials with the special nanoscale structure and effective surface composition for biomedical applications such as bone implants.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 June 2015.
All research outputs
#15,336,434
of 22,811,321 outputs
Outputs from International Journal of Nanomedicine
#2,235
of 3,816 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#157,023
of 267,523 outputs
Outputs of similar age from International Journal of Nanomedicine
#79
of 109 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 22,811,321 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 22nd percentile – i.e., 22% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 3,816 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.3. This one is in the 28th percentile – i.e., 28% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 267,523 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 109 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 9th percentile – i.e., 9% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
