Surface functionalization of titanium with carboxymethyl chitosan and immobilized bone morphogenetic protein-2 for enhanced osseointegration.
Orthopedic implant failure has been attributed mainly to loosening of the implant from host bone, which may be due to poor bonding of the implant material to bone tissue, as well as to bacterialExpand

Titanium with surface-grafted dextran and immobilized bone morphogenetic protein-2 for inhibition of bacterial adhesion and enhancement of osteoblast functions.
Failure of bone and joint implants has been attributed mainly to poor bonding of the implant to bone tissue, and to bacterial infection. The probability of successful osseointegration or implantExpand
