A source of morphologically and functionally available human cartilagenous tissue for implantation is required in the field of tissue engineering. To achieve this goal, we evaluated the effects of hyaluronic acid (HA-810 and 1680 kDa), and chondroitin sulfate (CS-A 16 and C-34 kDa) on human articular chondrocytes (HC) in micromass and rotation culture(More)
The aim of this study was to evaluate the potential role of polyglycolic acid (PGA), poly(glycolic acid-ε-caprolactone) (PGCL), poly(l-lactic acid-glycolic acid) (PLGA), poly(l-lactic acid-ε-caprolactone, 75:25 (w/w)) [P(LA-CL)25], poly-ε-caprolactone (tetrabutoxy titanium) [PCL(Ti)], and fullerene C-60 dimalonic acid (DMA) in cartilage transplants. After 4(More)
Astrocyte proliferation is strictly controlled during development and in the adult nervous system. In this study, we examined the role of sulfated hyaluronan (SHya) in the proliferation and differentiation of normal human astrocytes (NHAs). Cells were cultured with different concentrations of SHya for 7 days, and the number of viable cells and the presence(More)
Recent study has shown that biodegradable polymers are attractive candidates for chondrocyte fixation and further transplantation in cartilage tissue engineering. Poly (glycolic acid) (PGA), a polymer of glycolic acid, is widely used in orthopedic applications as a biodegradable polymer. Organotin, lead, antimony, and zinc are catalysts commonly used in(More)
