In vitro formation of nanocrystalline carbonate apatite - A structural and morphological analogue of atherosclerotic plaques

Olsson, Lars-Fride; Sandin, Karin; Odselius, Rolf LU and Kloo, Lars (2007) In European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry p.4123-4127
Abstract
The in vitro formation of carbonate apatite in solutions with ion concentrations comparable to those in human serum was studied. The composition and morphology of the resulting apatite precipitate displayed a hierarchical assembly of elongated plate-shaped nanocrystals of carbonate apatite analogous to previously characterized bioapatites formed in The main conclusion is that so-called bioapatites may form in vitro and that precipitation inhibitors most likely are essential for the prevention of spontaneous calcification at normal human serum ion concentrations.
