BACKGROUND: In vitro evaluation of cell-surface interactions for hard tissue implants have mostly been done using osteoblasts. However, when an implant is placed in the body, mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) play a major role in new bone formation. Therefore, using MSCs in cell-surface investigations may provide more reliable information on the prediction of in vivo behavior of implants.
