Abstract [en]

Simvastatin, a cholesterol lowering drug, has the capacity to stimulate bone formation along with having anti-inflammatory effects. Incorporating simvastatin to the calcium phosphate cement would result in slow release of the drug stimulating bone formation and by preventing a local inflammation and bone resorption. The main aim is to study and examine the inflammatory response towards calcium phosphate cements in vitro and compare it with cements incorporated with simvastatin.
