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 ...
Study on the use of 3‐aminopropyltriethoxysilane and 3‐chloropropyltriethoxysilane to surface biochemical modification of a novel low elastic modulus Ti–Nb–Hf alloy
(Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part B: Applied Biomaterials, 2014-06-09)
A biocompatible new titanium alloy Ti–16Hf–25Nb with low elastic modulus (45 GPa) and the use of short bioadhesive peptides derived from the extracellular matrix have been studied. In terms of cell ...
Mechanical and microstructural characterization of new nickel-free low modulus beta-type titanium wires during thermomechanical treatments
(Materials Science and Engineering: A, 2015-06-11)
NiTi alloy is the only practical shape memory alloy (SMA) in biomedical use because of its excellent mechanical stability and functionality. However, it is estimated that between 4.5% and 28.5% of the ...
Development of tantalum scaffold for orthopaedic applications produced by space-holder method
(Materials & Design, 2015-10-15)
In the present study, production of tantalum porous scaffolds using the space holder technique was performed. The effect of size and content of sodium chloride particles, used as space holder, as well ...
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 ...
Mimicking bone extracellular matrix: integrin-binding peptidomimetics enhance osteoblast-like cells adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation on titanium
(Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 2015-04-01)
Interaction between the surface of implants and biological tissues is a key aspect of biomaterials research. Apart from fulfilling the non-toxicity and structural requirements, synthetic materials are ...
