We have examined the effect of extracts of the calcium phosphate/poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) (CP/PLGA) and cobalt-exchanged hydroxyapatite (CoHAp), on the viability of Saos2 osteoblastlike cells. Extracts were prepared by incubation for 3 days at 37°C in the cultivation medium. Conductivity and pH value of extracts were measured before viability assay. Cell viability was estimated by MTT test performed after 24 h incubation of cells with various concentrations of extracts. Extract of CP/PLGA acted more cytotoxic on osteoblasts than the extract of CoHAp. This difference in the effect of examined extracts can be explained by their different pH value and conductivity.
