Silicon substituted hydroxyapatite (SiHA) has been reported to produce faster bone in- growth in vitro compared to hydroxyapatite (HA). The mechanism by which silicate ions in these materials trigger bone growth and differentiation remains unclear. In vitro models were used in this thesis to investigate human osteoblast cell responses on exposure to silicon containing materials and silicate ion solutions. The amounts of serum protein bound to SiHA was significantly higher than that in HA (p
