PMID:  2135634     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The biocompatibility of biocompatible orthopaedic polymer implant materials was studied in subcutaneous and bony tissue of rats and rabbits. The tissue response was evaluated by histological techniques. No bone induction capacity of biocompatible orthopaedic polymer could be observed. In rabbits, the presence of plasma cells was significantly higher than in rats. The biomaterial showed some signs of biodegradation and was not very biocompatible.
