This study aims to evaluate in vitro the release properties and biological behavior of original compositions of strontium (Sr)-loaded bone mineral cements. Strontium was introduced into vaterite CaCO3 -dicalcium phosphate dihydrate cement via two routes: as SrCO3 in the solid phase (SrS cements), and as SrCl2 dissolved in the liquid phase (SrL cements),(More)
We report the deposition by Matrix Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation (MAPLE) technique of biomimetic nanocrystalline apatite coatings on titanium substrates, with potential application in tissue engineering. The targets were prepared from metastable, nanometric, poorly crystalline apatite powders, analogous to mineral bone, synthesized through a biomimetic(More)
This work proposes to combine tranexamic acid (TAX), a clinically used antifibrinolytic agent, and hydroxyapatite (HA), widely used in bone replacement, to produce a novel bioactive apatitic biomaterial with intrinsic hemostatic properties. The aim of this study was to investigate adsorptive behavior of the TAX molecule onto HA and to point out its release(More)
Chlorapatite can be considered a potential biomaterial for orthopaedic applications. Its use as plasma-sprayed coating could be of interest considering its thermal properties and particularly its ability to melt without decomposition unlike hydroxyapatite. Chlorapatite (ClA) was synthesized by a high-temperature ion exchange reaction starting from(More)
Chitosan/biomimetic apatite thin films were grown in mild conditions of temperature and pressure by Combinatorial Matrix-Assisted Pulsed Laser Evaporation on Ti, Si or glass substrates. Compositional gradients were obtained by simultaneous laser vaporization of the two distinct material targets. A KrF* excimer (λ=248nm, τFWHM=25ns) laser source was used in(More)
UNLABELLED The development of bioactive phosphate-based glasses is essential in biomaterials science, and especially for bone substitution applications. In this context, the preparation of amorphous calcium-phosphorus hydroxide/oxide monoliths at low temperature is a key challenge for being able to develop novel hybrid materials for these applications. We(More)
Bisphosphonates are widely employed drugs for the treatment of pathologies characterized by excessive bone resorption, and display a great affinity for apatitic supports. In this work we investigate how hydroxyapatite functionalization can influence the processes of adsorption and release of a bisphosphonate, namely risedronate. To this aim, pure(More)
This paper deals with the characterization of ultra-thin films of PMMA grown by an original photoassisted Chemical Vapor Deposition process equipped with a pulsed liquid injection system to deliver the monomer. The nanometric thick films showed a good ability to encapsulate a liquid phase as microoly(methyl methacrylate)
