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 ...
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, ...
