The design of chemically well-defined, synthetic surfaces containing bioactive molecules offers potential for fundamental science related to bone growth and development as well as clinical orthopedic engineering applications. In this study, we have developed drug-eluting nanotubular surfaces as coatings for orthopedic implants. These nanotubular surfaces not only provide a favorable microenvironent for osseointegration, but also can be used to deliver therapeutic proteins or drugs. Here, we examine the drug loading and kinetics of release of two model proteins from nanotubular titania.
