Installing multifunctionality on titanium with RGD-decorated polyurethane-polyurea roxithromycin loaded nanoparticles: toward new osseointegrative therapies
(Advanced Healthcare Materials, 2015)
A novel class of polyurethane-polyurea nanoparticles (PUUa NPs) to install multifunctionality on biomaterials is presented. Biofunctionalization of titanium with roxithromycin loaded RGD-decorated PUUa ...
Surface immobilization and bioactivity of TGF-ß1 inhibitor peptides for bone implant applications
(Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials, 2016-02-01)
TGF-ß1 is the most related cytokine with the production of fibrotic tissue. It plays an important role on the production of collagen by fibroblasts and other types of cells. The inhibition of this ...
Surface guidance of stem cell behavior: chemically tailored co-presentation of integrin-binding peptides stimulates osteogenic differentiation in vitro and bone formation in vivo
(Acta Biomaterialia, 2016-10-01)
Surface modification stands out as a versatile technique to create instructive biomaterials that are able to actively direct stem cell fate. Chemical functionalization of titanium has been used in this ...
Porous titanium-hydroxyapatite composite coating obtained on titanium by cold gas spray with high bond strength for biomedical applications
(Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 2019-04-24)
The lack of bioactivity of titanium (Ti) is one of the main drawbacks for its application in biomedical implants since it can considerable reduce its osseointegration capacities. One strategy to overcome ...
Biofunctionalization strategies on tantalum-based materials for osseointegrative applications
(Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, 2015)
The use of tantalum as biomaterial for orthopedic applications is gaining considerable attention in the clinical practice because it presents an excellent chemical stability, body fluid resistance, ...
