Comparative study of tissue reactions to calcium phosphate ceramics among cancellous, cortical, and medullar bone sites in rabbits.
In order to understand the influence of the implantation site on bone biomaterial evaluation, we implanted cylinders of HA and beta-TCP ceramics in the femoral diaphysis and condyle of rabbits. AfterExpand

Bioactive coatings of endovascular stents based on polyelectrolyte multilayers.
Layer-by-layer self-assembly of two polysaccharides, hyaluronan (HA) and chitosan (CH), was employed to engineer bioactive coatings for endovascular stents. A polyethyleneimine (PEI) primer layer wasExpand

Effect of surface treatment and sterilization processes on the corrosion behavior of NiTi shape memory alloy.
Nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloy derives its biocompatibility and good corrosion resistance from a homogeneous oxide layer mainly composed of TiO(2), with a very low concentration of nickel. In thisExpand

Delivery platform for hydrophobic drugs: prodrug approach combined with self-assembled multilayers.
We report the design of a platform for the delivery of hydrophobic drugs via a macromolecular prodrug approach combined with LbL-assembled polyelectrolyte multilayers. A hyaluronan ester prodrug ofExpand

Nanocoatings onto arteries via layer-by-layer deposition: toward the in vivo repair of damaged blood vessels.
The deposition of polysaccharide-based self-assembled nanocoatings onto damaged arteries is described as a means not only to protect a damaged artery against thrombogenesis, but also to control theExpand

Nitinol versus stainless steel stents: acute thrombogenicity study in an ex vivo porcine model.
Acute and subacute stents thrombosis along with thrombus mediating neointimal proliferation within the stent struts remain major concerns in coronary stenting. Up to date, there is an obvious lack ofExpand

Cellular micromotion monitored by long-range surface plasmon resonance with optical fluctuation analysis.
Long-range surface plasmon resonance (LRSPR) is a powerful biosensing technology due to a substantially larger probing depth into the medium and sensitivity, compared with conventional SPR. WeExpand
