Hydroxyapatite-gelatin (HAP-GEL) nanocomposites, for bone regeneration, were analyze using a biomeimetic process. The HAP-GEL rods were implanted into the proximal femur of Sprague-Dawley rats to assess the cell proliferation. It was observed that after fours of attachment, most cells appeared round in all discs. It was found that higher gelatin content lead to higher cell growth. The results show that HAP-GEL supports the attachment, proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts.
