The objective of this study was to improve the efficacy of polycaprolactone/bioglass (PCL/BG) bone substitute using demineralized bone matrix (DBM) or calcium sulfate (CS) as a third component. Composite discs involving either DBM or CS were prepared by compression moulding. Bioactivity of discs was evaluated by energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (ESCA)(More)
A series of simple copper N2S2 macrocycles were examined for their potential as biological redox sensors, following previous characterization of their redox potentials and crystal structures. The divalent species were reduced by glutathione or ascorbate at a biologically relevant pH in aqueous buffer. A less efficient reduction was also achieved by vitamin(More)
Objectives We aimed to develop a sustained release system for an anti-TNFa drug in treatment of chronic inflammatory arthritis. A novel form of intra-articularly injectable etanercept (ETN) loaded poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) or methoxy poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(ε-caprolactone)methoxy poly(ethylene glycol) (MPEG-PCL-MPEG) microspheres (patent pending) were(More)
