Biomedical potential of chitosan/HA and chitosan/β-1,3-glucan/HA biomaterials as scaffolds for bone regeneration--A comparative study.
The chit/glu/HA possesses better biomedical potential than ch it/HA scaffold and can serve as a very good drug delivery carrier, but poor mechanical properties of the chit-glu-HA limit its application to non-load bearing implantation area. Expand
Mechanical properties and corrosion resistance of burnished X5CrNi 18-9 stainless steel
Purpose: In this paper there were presented the burnishing process and obtained mechanical properties and the structure of burnished stainless steel and its corrosion resistance.Expand
In vitro studies of nanosilver-doped titanium implants for oral and maxillofacial surgery
Data from the present study indicated that the incorporation of nanosilver may influence the surface properties that are important in the implant healing process, as both the antibacterial and cytotoxic properties may be observed at similar concentration ranges. Expand
Micro-CT analysis and mechanical properties of Ti spherical and polyhedral void composites made with saccharose as a space holder material
Abstract The paper describes the formation, morphology and mechanical properties of Ti void composites. The Ti void composites were made using 100 and 325 mesh Ti powder for solid scaffold formation.Expand
Chitosan/β-1,3-glucan/calcium phosphate ceramics composites--novel cell scaffolds for bone tissue engineering application.
It is inferred that fabricated novel composites are promising materials for bone tissue engineering application as cell scaffolds to fill small bone losses rather than as massive bone fillers exposed to mechanical load. Expand
Nanomaterials in dentistry: a cornerstone or a black box?
As application of nanomaterials in industry and medical-related sciences is still expanding, more information is needed on how such nano-dental materials may interfere with oral cavity, GI tract and general health. Expand
Fluorapatite ceramics for bone tissue regeneration: Synthesis, characterization and assessment of biomedical potential.
F fluorapatite sintered at 800 °C was determined to be of optimal porosity and fluoride release capacity and then used in cell proliferation studies, which showed that it significantly shortened the doubling time and thus enhanced the proliferation of osteogenic cells, as compared to the fluoride solutions and control group.

New method for the fabrication of highly osteoconductive β-1,3-glucan/HA scaffold for bone tissue engineering: Structural, mechanical, and biological characterization.
It was demonstrated that developed new method for the glu/HA scaffold fabrication allows to obtain material that not only can be modified with thermo-sensitive agents at the stage of production process but also is a promising candidate for bone tissue engineering applications to act as a framework for osteoblasts to spread and form new bone.

Superabsorbent curdlan-based foam dressings with typical hydrocolloids properties for highly exuding wound management.
Novel biomaterials have the superabsorbent ability, stable in the presence of collagenases, but prone to biodegradation in lysozyme solution (simulated infected wound environment), and their surface hinders fibroblast attachment, which is essential during dressing changes to avoid damage to newly formed tissues in the wound bed.
