Abstract [en]

Cobalt chromium molybdenum alloys (CoCr-Mo) are commonly used as articulating components in joint prostheses. In this tribocorrosive environment, wear debris and metal ionic species are released and interact with proteins, possibly resulting in protein aggregation. This study aimed to investigate whether this could have an eff ect on the friction coefficient in a typical material couple, namely CoCrMo-onpolyethylene. It was confirmed that both Co(II) and Cr(III) ions, and their combination, at concentrations relevant for the metal release situation, resulted in protein aggregation and its concomitant precipitation, which increased the friction coeffi cient. Future studies should identify the clinical importance of these findings.
