Human adipose stem cells (ASCs) combined with osteostimulative material provide an attractive approach for clinical bone regeneration. The effect of calcium phosphate (Ca-P) surface treatment of three-dimensional bioactive glass scaffolds on the attachment, proliferation, and osteogenic differentiation of ASCs was studied. Three types of bioactive glass(More)
Human adipose stem cells (hASCs) have been recently used to treat bone defects in clinical practice. Yet there is a need for more optimal scaffolds and cost-effective approaches to induce osteogenic differentiation of hASCs. Therefore, we compared the efficiency of bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP-2 and BMP-7), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM Plaster-of-Paris and synthetic materials (e.g. fibreglass) have been in clinical use as casting materials for decades. An innovative casting material, WOODCAST, brings interesting alternatives to the traditional materials. The aim of this study was to compare the stiffness properties of the WOODCAST material to traditional casting(More)
