Surface modification and endothelialization of biomaterials as potential scaffolds for vascular tissue engineering applications.
Both gene engineering and targeting ligand immobilization are promising methods to improve the clinical outcome of artificial vascular grafts and could effectively accelerate selective endothelial cell recruitment and functional endothelialization. Expand
Design and development of polysaccharide hemostatic materials and their hemostatic mechanism.
This review provides an overview of polysaccharide-based hemostatic materials and agents, including their advantages and drawbacks in he mostatic applications. Expand
Co-electrospun blends of PU and PEG as potential biocompatible scaffolds for small-diameter vascular tissue engineering
Abstract A small-diameter vascular graft (inner diameter 4 mm) was fabricated from polyurethane (PU) and poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) solutions by blend electrospinning technology. The fiber diameterExpand
Biodegradable Polydepsipeptides
The ring-opening polymerization of morpholine-2,5-dione derivatives using organic Sn and enzyme lipase is discussed and the dependence of the macroscopic properties of the block copolymers on their structure is presented. Expand
Hydrophilic PCU scaffolds prepared by grafting PEGMA and immobilizing gelatin to enhance cell adhesion and proliferation.
The modified polycarbonate urethane scaffold surface by immobilization of gelatin showed low platelet adhesion, perfect anti-hemolytic activity and excellent cell growth and proliferation capacity, and it could be envisioned that PCU-g-PEGMA- g-gelatin scaffolds might have potential applications in tissue engineering artificial scaffolds.

Hemocompatible surface of electrospun nanofibrous scaffolds by ATRP modification.
The modified electrospun nanofibrous scaffolds were potential application as artificial blood vessels in vascular tissue engineering and showed high tendency to induce cell adhesion. Expand
Progress in depsipeptide-based biomaterials.
Various techniques developed to synthesize polydepsipeptides and their copolymers, biodegradation behaviors, shape-memory properties and possible biomedical applications are focused on. Expand
Nanoparticles complexed with gene vectors to promote proliferation of human vascular endothelial cells.
Results indicate that the NPs might have potential as a carrier for pEGFP-ZNF580, which could support endothelialization of cardiovascular implants. Expand
Bioreducible, hydrolytically degradable and targeting polymers for gene delivery.
Redox-sensitive disulfide based and hydrolytically degradable cationic polymers serve as gene carriers with excellent transfection efficiency and good biocompatibility owing to degradation in the cytoplasm. Expand
