Paper Abstract

Recently, the sol-gel based biomaterials are extendedly investigated with emphasis on theirs various applications, including medical ones. In this respect it is important to investigate the influence of sol-gel matrices on biological systems. The results of laboratory and biological testing of aqueous extracts of sol-gels are presented in this work. It was proved that it is possible to produce the sol-gel derived materials that will be non-haemolytic. This can be achieved by heating the materials in elevated temperatures. This effect can also be reached by suitably long aging (minimum 6 months).
