Bone implants are often required for osteoporosis patients. Proper integration of the implant with the bone tissue is then crucial. We tested use of ZrO2, TiO2 and HfO2 for biofunctionalization of implant surfaces. We have demonstrated the anti-inflammatory properties of such coatings, important in the postoperative period. We can reduce the body's defense response, blocking implant rejection.
