Mechanical properties of anodic titanium films containing ions of Ca and P submitted to heat and hydrothermal treatment.
Anodic oxidation is a technique widely used to improve the bioactivity of Ti surface. In this study, micro-arc oxidation (MAO) was used to obtain an anodic film incorporating Ca and P ions to evaluate the effect of heat ...
Synthesis and in vivo evaluation of a scaffold containing wollastonite/β‐TCP for bone repair in a rabbit tibial defect model.
(Wiley Online Library, 2019-08-08)
Scaffolds are models designed to aid the interaction between cells and extracellular bone matrix, providing structural support for newly formed bone tissue. In this work, wollastonite with β‐TCP porous ceramic scaffolds ...
Smart hydrogels: therapeutic advancements in hydrogel technology for smart drug delivery applications.
Hydrogels are a fusion of solid and liquid phases which closely mimic biological tissue. As such they have enormous potential for drug delivery systems as they are biocompatible and may be tailored to specific applications. ...
Microfibrillated cellulose films containing chitosan and tannic acid for wound healing applications
The effectiveness of tannic acid as antimicrobial and wound healing for burns have been shown for a century; however, uncontrolled target dosage may result in undesirable side-effects. Remarkably, tannic acid polyphenols ...
Synthesis and in vivo behaviour of PVP/CMC/Agar hydrogel membranes impregnated with silver nanoparticles for wound healing applications.
The field of wound healing has seen an increase in research activity in wound care and hydrogel-based dressings have been targeted as a solution for these applications. Hydrogels with silver nanoparticles can present many ...
