Photopolymerization for filling porous ceramic matrix: improvement of mechanical properties and drug delivering behaviour.
This work presents the photopolymerisation of composite scaffolds where a prefabricated ceramic scaffold was impregnated with poly(ethylene) glycol dimethacrylate (PEGDMA) macromonomer solution. The PEGDMA solution penetrates ...
Extended release of proteins following encapsulation in hydroxyapatite/chitosan composite scaffolds for bone tissue engineering applications.
Highlights: Biocompatible, mechanically robust scaffold with an appropriate stability for bone healing when used with fixation device. Proteins can be covalently attached to the scaffold. Proteins are released for an ...
Bioactive composites fabricated by freezing-thawing method for bone regeneration applications.
Hydrogels are widely used for controlled delivery of therapeutic agents. However, hydrogels lack bioactivity to encourage bone formation and mechanical integrity. Moreover, chemically crosslinked hydrogels exhibit cytotoxic ...
Platelet-rich plasma, Hydroxyapatite, and Chitosan in the bone and cartilaginous regeneration of femoral trochlea in rabbits: clinical, radiographic, and histomorphometric evaluations.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the trochlear bone and cartilaginous regeneration of rabbits using the association of PRP, chitosan, and hydroxyapatite. Hole was made in rabbit troches, one hole in each animal ...
