Significance and Use
5.1 This practice is useful for assessing the cytotoxic potential both when evaluating new materials or formulations for possible use in medical applications, and as part of a quality control program for established medical devices.
5.5 This practice may be useful to determine the effects of age and radiation, and the state of carcinogenicity on the sensitivity of HED tissues to materials and devices used for orofacial prostheses.
1.1 This practice describes a procedure to assess the cytotoxic potential of materials for use in the construction of medical materials and devices using human excised donor (HED) tissues and their derived primary cells taken from the orofacial region.
1.4 Assessment of cytotoxicity is one of several procedures employed in determining the biological response to a material, as recommended in Practice F748.
