Immune responses to implants - a review of the implications for the design of immunomodulatory biomaterials.
A key for long-term survival and function of biomaterials is that they do not elicit a detrimental immune response. As biomaterials can have profound impacts on the host immune response the conceptExpand

Effect of immobilized bone morphogenic protein 2 coating of titanium implants on peri-implant bone formation.
The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that immobilization of bone morphogenic protein (BMP2) on the surface of titanium implants can enhance peri-implant bone formation. Ten adultExpand

Functionalization of dental implant surfaces using adhesion molecules.
The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that organic coating of titanium screw implants that provides binding sites for integrin receptors can enhance periimplant bone formation. TenExpand

Comparison of microfocus- and synchrotron X-ray tomography for the analysis of osteointegration around Ti6Al4V implants.
Micro-computed tomography (microCT) provides quantitative three-dimensional information of bone around titanium implants similar to classical histology. The study, based on an animal model,Expand

Coating of titanium implants with collagen, RGD peptide and chondroitin sulfate.
Coating of orthopaedic implants with extracellular bone matrix components was performed to enhance bone healing. Titanium pins of 0.8mm diameter were coated with type I collagen (Ti/Coll), RGDExpand

Comparison of chemically and pharmaceutically modified titanium and zirconia implant surfaces in dentistry: a study in sheep.
Advanced surface modifications and materials were tested on the same implant geometry. Six types of dental implants were tested for osseointegration after 2, 4 and 8 weeks in a sheep pelvis model.Expand

Characterization of oxide layers on Ti6Al4V and titanium by streaming potential and streaming current measurements
Abstract Titanium and titanium alloys (e.g. Ti6Al4V) are increasingly used as medical implant materials in a wide variety of applications. So far, many surface properties of the passive layerExpand

Increased bone formation around coated implants.
AIM We hypothesized that coating threaded, sandblasted acid-etched titanium implants with collagen and chondroitin sulphate (CS) increases bone formation and implant stability, compared with uncoatedExpand

Biomechanical comparison of different surface modifications for dental implants.
PURPOSE A satisfactory clinical outcome in dental implant treatment relies on primary stability for immediate load bearing. While the geometric design of an implant contributes to mechanicalExpand
