Abstract

Two series of glasses of general formula (2-p) SiO2·1.1Na 2O·CaO·pP2O5·xZnO (p=0.10, 0.20; x=0.0, 0.16, 0.35, and 0.78) have been analyzed for physico-chemical surface features before and after contact with simulated body fluid, morphological characteristics, and osteoblast-like cells behavior when cultured on them. The resulted good cell adhesion and growth, along with nonsignificant changes of the focal contacts, allow the authors to indicate HZ5 and HP5Z5 glasses as the ones having optimal ratio of Zn/P to maintain acceptable cell behavior, comparable to the bioactive glass (Bioglass®) used as a control; results are also rationalized by means of three-dimensional models derived by molecular dynamic simulations, with decomposition and conversion rates optimized with respect to the parent Hench's Bioglass®.
