Wear-debris-induced periprosthetic bone loss and aseptic loosening is regarded as the main long-term problem of total hip replacements (THRs). In this study the amount of wear debris from articulating surfaces of THRs was reduced so as to be close to negligible by the use of high-quality amorphous diamond (AD) coatings deposited by pulsed plasma arc(More)
Macrophage receptor with collagenous structure (MARCO) is a scavenger receptor with a very limited expression in healthy tissues. It was hypothesized that foreign body wear debris induces it to participate in handling of implant-derived particles in human synovial membrane-like tissue around aseptically loosening total hip replacement implants. A DNA(More)
Birch distillate was tested as an additive in commercial wood-plastic composites by studying the mechanical properties and water absorption of the modified composites prepared by injection molding. The addition of wood distillate decreased the water absorption (24 h) of some samples and increased the processability of the composite granules. This(More)
In 14 adolescents with diabetes, the postprandial blood glucose, after ingestion of two popular snacks, milk chocolate bar and potato chips, was compared to a prescribed mid-afternoon snack that was isocaloric with the comparison snacks. The prescribed diabetes snack consisted of wholemeal wheat bread, margarine, cheese and apple (1533 kJ/365 kcal): 14%(More)
