Surface modification, particularly coatings deposition, is beneficial to tissue-engineering applications. In this work, bioactive glass/zirconium titanate composite thin films were prepared by a sol-gel spin-coating method. The surface features of the coatings were studied by scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and spectroscopic(More)
Electrospinning is a widely used technique to produce continuous polymeric fibers ranging from 2 nm to several micrometers. This technique is not only employed in research laboratories, but it is also increasingly being applied in different industrial fields in the last few decades as a highly versatile and cost-effective technology. Compared to(More)
The creation of engineered intestinal tissue has recently stimulated new endeavors with the ultimate goal of intestinal replacement for massive resections of bowel. In this context, we investigated the effect of hyaluronic acid (HA) on the physicochemical characteristics of gelatin-collagen scaffolds and its cytocompatibilty to the human intestinal(More)
Intestinal tissue engineering is an emerging field due to a growing demand for intestinal lengthening and replacement procedures secondary to massive resections of the bowel. Damaged segments of intestinal tissue require surgical interventions, which can lead to malnutrition eventually resulting in high mortality and morbidity rates. There is also a(More)
