Simulated body fluid (SBF) is an artificial fluid which has ionic composition and ionic concentration similar to human blood plasma. Purpose: This paper compares the interaction between the nanomaterial containing calcium phosphate/poly-dl-lactide-co-glycolide (N-CP/PLGA) and SBF, in order to investigate whether and to what extent inorganic ionic composition of human blood plasma leads to the aforementioned changes in the material. Methods: N-CP/PLGA was incubated for 1, 2, 3, and 5 weeks in SBF. The surface of the material was analyzed on SEM-EDS and FTIR spectrometer, while SBF was subjected to pH and electrical conductivity measurement. Results: Our results indicate that dissolution of the polymer component of the material N-CP/PLGA and precipitation of the material similar to hydroxyapatite on its surface are based on the morphologic changes seen in this material. Conclusions: The mechanism of the apatite formation on the bioceramic surface was intensively studied and was considere...d crucial in designing the new biomaterials. The results obtained in this work indicate that N-CP/PLGA may be a good candidate for application to bone regeneration.
