To study the biocompatibility of the ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) implanted by ions. Methods: The studiy was undertaken with the systemic acute toxicity test, cytoloxicity test, pyrogen test, mutagenicity test and animal test according to the ASTM standards. Results: The samples were demonstrated no differences in the all tests. Conclusion: The UHMWPE by ion implantation is biocompatible material and can be used in clinic.
