Fibroblastic cells in vitro were exposed to powders of titanium, titanium-aluminium-vanadium alloy and cobalt-chrome-molybdenum (Co-Cr-Mo) alloy, either in direct contact with the cells or separated from the cells by a microporous membrane. Fine particles of all the materials reduced cell growth when in direct contact with cells, but only the finest particles of Co-Cr-Mo alloy caused cell damage through the microporous membrane. This provides further evidence that there is a mechanism of cell damage in vitro which depends on a direct interaction between cells and particles and is largely independent of the chemical nature of the particle.
