The development of photochemically crosslinked native fibrinogen as a rapidly formed and mechanically strong surgical tissue sealant.
We recently reported the generation of a highly elastic, crosslinked protein biomaterial via a rapid photochemical process using visible light illumination. In light of these findings, we predictedExpand
A highly elastic tissue sealant based on photopolymerised gelatin.
Gelatin is widely used as a medical biomaterial because it is readily available, cheap, biodegradable and demonstrates favourable biocompatibility. Many applications require stabilisation of theExpand
Repair of porcine articular cartilage defect with autologous chondrocyte transplantation
Articular cartilage is known to have poor healing capacity after injury. Autologous chondral grafting remains the mainstay to treat well‐defined, full‐thickness, symptomatic cartilage defects. WeExpand
Bladder acellular matrix as a substrate for studying in vitro bladder smooth muscle-urothelial cell interactions.
The objective of this study was to evaluate the ability of bladder acellular matrix (BAM) to support the individual and combined growth of primary porcine bladder smooth muscle (SMC) and urothelialExpand
Collagens as biomaterials
This paper reviews the structure, function and applications of collagens as biomaterials. The various formats for collagens, either as tissue-based devices or as reconstituted soluble collagens areExpand
Biocompatibility and modification of the protein-based adhesive secreted by the Australian frog Notaden bennetti.
When provoked, Notaden bennetti frogs secrete a proteinaceous exudate, which rapidly forms a tacky and elastic glue. This material has potential in biomedical applications. Cultured cells attachedExpand
Collagen-hydroxyapatite composite prepared by biomimetic process.
A novel bone graft substitute comprising a porous, collagenous scaffold was biomimetically coated with hydroxyapatite using a simulated body fluid solution chemistry method. The scaffold had aExpand
Recombinant protein scaffolds for tissue engineering.
New biological materials for tissue engineering are now being developed using common genetic engineering capabilities to clone and express a variety of genetic elements that allow cost-effectiveExpand

Collagen-based biomedical materials have developed into important, clinically effective materials used in a range of devices that have gained wide acceptance. These devices come with collagen inExpand
Development of porous collagen beads for chondrocyte culture
A method for the preparation of bioresorbable collagen beads with an open porous structure is presented. These beads were prepared from collagen-alginate composite beads by removal of the alginateExpand
