Most commercial dental implants are made of titanium (Ti) because Ti possesses excellent properties such as osseointegration. However, many types of Ti products still suffer from insufficient antibacterial capability and bacterial infection after surgery remains one of the most common and intractable complications. In this study, a dual process encompassing(More)
The amount, type, and conformation of proteins adsorbed on an implanted biomaterial are believed to influence cell adhesion. Nevertheless, only a few research works have been dedicated to the contribution of protein adsorption force. To verify our hypothesis that the adsorption force of protein on biomaterial is another crucial mediator to cell adhesion,(More)
Mechano-growth factor (MGF) is an alternative splicing variant of Insulin-like growth factor I. MGF and its 24 amino acid peptide analog corresponding to the unique C-terminal E-domain (MGF-Ct24E) are the positive regulator for tissue regenesis in bone. A novel biomimetic poly(D, L-lactic acid) (PDLLA) modification was designed and synthesized based on(More)
Programming such as stretching, compression and bending is indispensible to endow polyurethanes with shape memory effects. Despite extensive investigations on the contributions of programming processes to the shape memory effects of polyurethane, less attention has been paid to the nanostructures of shape memory polyurethanes surface during the programming(More)
Although heterogeneous bone scaffolds have shown potential in bone defect repair, their capability of aiding bone regeneration need to be further enhanced. Strontium, one important trace element in bone, has a well-known favorable effect on bone repair. Here a strontium containing scaffold (CPB/PCL/Sr) based on superficially porous calcined porcine bone(More)
Although poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA) cements are widely used in orthopaedics, they have numerous drawbacks. This study aimed to improve their bioactivity and osseointegration by incorporating strontium-containing borate bioactive glass (SrBG) as the reinforcement phase and bioactive filler of PMMA cement. The prepared SrBG/PMMA composite cements showed(More)
A weak alkaline environment is established to facilitate the growth of osteoblasts. Unfortunately, this is inconsistent with the application of biodegradable polymer in bone regeneration, as the degradation products are usually acidic. In this study, the variation of the interfacial pH of poly (D, L-lactide) and piperazine-based polyurethane ureas (P-PUUs),(More)
This study focused on improving activity and stability of industrial lipases by means of enzymatic immobilization onto spherelike bacterial cellulose (SBC) newly synthesized by a particular bacterial strain (Gluconacetobacter xylinus, JCM 9730). The results revealed that immobilizing lipases onto aldehyde-modified SBC with a size of 6.10±0.50mm could lead(More)
Antarctic krill chitosan (A-Chitosan) was first evaluated in its hemostatic effect in this study. The prepared A-Chitosan powder showed low level of crystallinity and significantly high water binding capacity as 1293% (w/w). By mice tail amputation model and blood coagulation timing experiment, it is showed that this chitosan accelerated the tail hemostasis(More)
