The biocompatibility of porous silicon is critical to its potential biomedical uses, both in vivo within the human body for therapy and diagnostics, and in vitro for biosensing and biofiltration. Published data from cell culture and in vivo studies are reviewed, and a number of emerging applications for bioactive or biodegradable silicon are discussed.
