Nanocarbon Allotropes-Graphene and Nanocrystalline Diamond-Promote Cell Proliferation.
In vitro experiments have revealed a significantly higher degree of cell proliferation on graphene than on nanocrystalline diamond and a tissue culture polystyrene control material, demonstrating superior characteristics for those biomedical applications where high cell proliferation is required under differing conditions.

The release kinetics, antimicrobial activity and cytocompatibility of differently prepared collagen/hydroxyapatite/vancomycin layers: Microstructure vs. nanostructure
The results herein suggest that nano‐structured collagen‐hydroxyapatite layers impregnated with vancomycin following cross‐linking provide suitable candidates for use as local drug delivery carriers. Expand
PEGylated gold nanoparticles: Stability, cytotoxicity and antibacterial activity
Abstract Designing safe nanomaterials is nowadays a critical issue. A way to prepare PEGylated Au NPs by sputtering of Au into pure (PEG), thiol (PEG-SH) and amine terminated polyethylene glycolsExpand
The effects of graphene and mesenchymal stem cells in cutaneous wound healing and their putative action mechanism
In light of experiments conducted to date, graphene combined with MSCs appears to have the potential to enhance both the wound healing process and infection control at the injury site. Expand
Surface modification of nanoporous anodic titanium dioxide layers for drug delivery systems and enhanced SAOS-2 cell response.
It was concluded that the modification with NaOH increased the amount of released ibuprofen and inhibited the release process and the modification of nanoporous TiO2 layers with small molecules such as APTES enhanced metabolic activity of adhered cells compared with the non-modified and NaOH-modified TiO 2 layers.

Biological evaluation of ultra-fine titanium with improved mechanical strength for dental implant engineering
Titanium, the gold standard for dental implant materials, is distinguished by its exceptional biocompatibility; however, from a long-term perspective, titanium still lacks sufficient loadingExpand
Generating standardized image data for testing and calibrating quantification of volumes, surfaces, lengths, and object counts in fibrous and porous materials using X‐ray microtomography
Software is developed that generates three‐dimensional models of fibrous and porous structures with known volumes, surfaces, lengths, and object counts in fibrous materials and to provide a software tool that calibrates quantitative micro‐CT assessments. Expand
Hyaluronic acid in complexes with surfactants: The efficient tool for reduction of the cytotoxic effect of surfactants on human cell types.
This comprehensive study of the effect of surfactant-HyA complexes on various human cell types revealed that HyA represents a useful CTAB or Septonex cytotoxic effect modulator at diverse levels. Expand
Evaluation of collagen/hydroxyapatite electrospun layers loaded with vancomycin, gentamicin and their combination: Comparison of release kinetics, antimicrobial activity and cytocompatibility.
This combination of vancomycin and gentamicin in the COL/HA layers exhibited sufficient cytocompatibility to SAOS-2, which was independent of the HA content and was found to be more effective against MRSA than is vancomYcin as a single agent. Expand
Immunomodulatory Potential of Differently-Terminated Ultra-Small Silicon Carbide Nanoparticles
The results revealed the potential modulation of immune cell behavior following stimulation with particular ultra-small nanoparticles, thus opening up new fields for novel silicon carbide nanoparticle biomedical applications. Expand
