Advantages of microfluidic systems for studying cell-biomaterial interactions: Focus on bone regeneration applications
(Institute of Physics Publishing, 2019-04)
The poor correlation between in vitro and in vivo studies emphasises the lack of a reliable methodology for testing the biological properties of biomaterials in the bone tissue regeneration field. Moreover, the success of ...
Determination of copper in composite biomaterials by capillary electrophoresis: an UV-direct method based on in situ complex formation
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-11)
This work describes the optimization and validation of an UV-direct capillary electrophoresis method for the analysis of copper ions in samples obtained from release studies of bone-tissue-engineering composite biomaterials. ...
Microwave-assisted polymer synthesis (MAPS) as a tool in biomaterials science: How new and how powerful
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2011-08)
Lack of reproducibility, difficult and expensive scale-up and standarization of synthetic processes are the main hurdles towards the industrial production of raw synthetic and semi-synthetic polymers for (bio)pharmaceutical ...
Tuning the Antimicrobial Activity of Collagen Biomaterials through a Liposomal Approach
(John Wiley & Sons Inc, 2020-11)
The development of advanced biocidal agents stands as a global challenge, focused on the increasing demand of new biomaterials with local and gradual release of antimicrobial agents. This is the first time that three ...
Is there any difference in the biological impact of soluble and insoluble degradation products of iron-containing biomaterials?
(Elsevier Science, 2017-12)
The interactions that could be built between the biomaterials and tissue- microenvironments are very complex, especially in case of degradable metals that generate a broad variety of degradation products. The interfacial ...
A new calcium releasing nano-composite biomaterial for bone tissue engineering scaffolds
A biomaterial with bioactive glass nanoparticles (nBG) and Ca2+ incorporated into alginate matrix was developed. Films characterization was carried out by SEM, IR, tensile strength measurements, bioactivity assay, degradation ...
Terpolymer-chitosan membranes as biomaterial
(Wiley-liss, div John Wiley & Sons Inc., 2021-08-16)
The present study shows a novel copolymer synthesis, its application in the membrane design and the physicochemical and biological characterization of the biomaterial obtained. Terpolymer starting diisopropyl fumarate (F), ...
Photoprotection and Photostability of a New Lignin-Gelatin-Baccharis antioquensis-Based Hybrid Biomaterial
(MDPIGrupo de Estabilidad de Medicamentos, Cosméticos y Alimentos (GEMCA)Grupo de Investigación en Compuestos FuncionalesBasilea, Suiza, 2021)
Research on implants and osseointegration
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2019-02)
Osseointegration was originally defined as a direct structural and functional connection between ordered living bone and the surface of a load-carrying implant. It is now said that an implant is regarded as osseointegrated ...
