Diseases in articular cartilages have affected millions of people globally. Although the biochemical and cellular composition of articular cartilages is relatively simple, there is a limitation in the self-repair ability of the cartilage. Therefore, developing strategies for cartilage repair is very important. Here, we report on a new liquid resin(More)
Electrospinning technology allows fabrication of nano- or microfibrous fibers with inorganic and organic matrix and it is widely applied in bone tissue engineering as it allows precise control over the shapes and structures of the fibers. Natural bone has an ordered composition of organic fibers with dispersion of inorganic apatite among them. In this(More)
Polymer gel dosimeters (PGDs) have been widely studied for use in the pretreatment verification of clinical radiation therapy. However, the readability of PGDs in three-dimensional (3D) dosimetry remain unclear. In this study, the pretreatment verifications of clinical radiation therapy were performed using an N-isopropyl-acrylamide (NIPAM) PGD, and the(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Calcium silicate (CS) cements have excellent bioactivity and can induce the bone-like apatite formation. They are good biomaterials for bone tissue engineering and bone regenerative medicine. However, they have degradability and the dissolved CS can cause the inflammatory response at the early post-implantation stage. The purpose of this(More)
