Biomaterial-associated thrombosis: roles of coagulation factors, complement, platelets and leukocytes.
Our failure to produce truly non-thrombogenic materials may reflect a failure to fully understand the mechanisms of biomaterial-associated thrombosis. The community has focused on minimizingExpand

Tissue engineering.
Wound care has become one of the first fields to see the benefit of a new technology: tissue engineering. Tissue engineering involves the development of new materials or devices capable of specificExpand

Endotoxin: the uninvited guest.
In the laboratory environment where biomaterials are synthesized and their biocompatibility assessed, we find that endotoxin contamination is hard to avoid and must not be ignored. In thoseExpand

MicroRNA miR-24 enhances tumor invasion and metastasis by targeting PTPN9 and PTPRF to promote EGF signaling
Summary MicroRNAs are known to play regulatory roles in gene expression associated with cancer development. We analyzed levels of the microRNA miR-24 in patients with breast carcinoma and found thatExpand

Coagulation on biomaterials in flowing blood: some theoretical considerations.
Are truly inert biomaterials feasible? Recent mathematical models of coagulation which are reviewed here suggest that such materials are impossible. This conclusion, which is certainly consistentExpand

Colorimetric assay for cellular activity in microcapsules.
Cellular activity in microcapsules was determined by a simple colorimetric assay, based on the cellular transformation of a tetrazolium salt, 3-(4,5-dimethyl-thiazol-2-yl)-2,5- diphenyl-tetrazoliumExpand
