Specific proteins mediate enhanced osteoblast adhesion on nanophase ceramics.
Osteoblast, fibroblast, and endothelial cell adhesion on nanophase (that is, materials with grain sizes less than 100 nm) alumina, titania, and hydroxyapatite (HA) was investigated using in vitroExpand

Osteoblast adhesion on nanophase ceramics.
Osteoblast adhesion on nanophase alumina (Al2O3) and titania (TiO2) was investigated in vitro. Osteoblast adhesion to nanophase alumina and titania in the absence of serum from Dulbecco's modifiedExpand

Biaxial strength of multilaminated extracellular matrix scaffolds.
Xenogeneic extracellular matrix (ECM) can be harvested and configured to function as a bioscaffold for tissue and organ reconstruction. The mechanical properties of the ECM vary depending upon theExpand

Increased osteoblast adhesion on nanophase metals: Ti, Ti6Al4V, and CoCrMo.
Previous studies have demonstrated increased functions of osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) on nanophase compared to conventional ceramics (specifically, alumina, titania, and hydroxyapatite),Expand

The relationship between the nanostructure of titanium surfaces and bacterial attachment.
Infection of an orthopedic prosthesis is undesirable and causes a decrease in the success rate of an implant. Reducing the adhesion of a broad range of bacteria could be an attractive means toExpand

The use of superparamagnetic nanoparticles for prosthetic biofilm prevention
As with all surgical procedures, implantation comes with the added risk of infection. The goal of this in vitro study was to explore the use of superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (SPION) as aExpand

Bactericidal effect of iron oxide nanoparticles on Staphylococcus aureus
In order to study the effects of iron oxide (IO) nanoparticles on Staphylococcus aureus, IO nanoparticles were synthesized via a novel matrix-mediated method using polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). The IOExpand
