The aim of the present study was to test the hypothesis that organic coating of titanium screw implants that provides binding sites for integrin receptors can enhance periimplant bone formation. Ten adult female foxhounds received experimental titanium screw implants in the mandible 3 months after removal of all premolar teeth. Four types of implants were(More)
An electrochemical method for the deposition of calcium phosphate phases on titanium surfaces using the galvanostatic mode is presented. Deposition was performed in a (Ca(2+) / H(x)PO(4) ((3-x)-))-containing electrolyte near physiological conditions with regard to pH (6.4) and temperature (36 degrees C). Cathodic alkalization leads first to the formation of(More)
For biomedical applications the physico-chemical properties of oxide layers, always present in titanium-based materials, are of special interest because the biological system is in direct contact only with these oxides. Using electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and galvanostatic polarization it is shown that the different compositions of c.p.-titanium,(More)
A complete biological integration into the surrounding tissues (bone, gingiva) is a critical step for clinical success of a dental implant. In this work biomimetic coatings consisting either of collagen type I (for the gingiva region) and hydroxyapatite (HAP) or mineralized collagen (for the bone interface) have been developed as suitable surfaces regarding(More)
UNLABELLED Calcium phosphate phases are increasingly used for bone tissue substitution, and the load bearing properties of these inherently brittle biomaterials are increased by inclusion of organic components. Monetite prepared using mineralization of gelatine pre-structured through phosphate leads to a significantly increased biaxial strength and indirect(More)
Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are highly valuable materials for filling bone defects and bone augmentation by minimal invasive application via percutaneous injection. In the present study some key features were significantly improved by developing a novel injectable ready-to-use calcium phosphate cement based on water-immiscible carrier liquids. A(More)
Herein, we aim to elucidate osteogenic effects of two silica-based xerogels with different degrees of bioactivity on human bone-derived mesenchymal stromal cells by means of scanning electron microscopy, quantitative PCR enhanced osteogenic effects and the formation of an extracellular matrix which could be ascribed to the sample with lower bioactivity.(More)
The ability of silica-/collagen-based composite xerogels to act as drug delivery systems was evaluated by taking into account the initial drug concentration, bioactivity of the xerogels, liquid, and incubation regime. The proteasome inhibitor bortezomib was chosen as a model drug, used for the systemic treatment of multiple myeloma. Incubation during 14(More)
