    • Development of synthetic alternatives for bone tissue engineering. 

      Killion, John; Geever, Luke; Devine, Declan; Kennedy, James; Higginbotham, Clement L. (Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences, 2013)
      Due to the inherent limitations of current biological bone grafts, alternative synthetic substitutes are being pursued. Therefore, this study aimed to improve the bioactive and compressive properties of photopolymerisable ...
    • Oxide layer containing apatite formed on Ti-25Nb-25Ta alloy treated by two-step plasma electrolytic oxidation. 

      Pereira, Bruno Leandro; Beilner, Gregory; Lepienski, Carlos Mauricio; Szameitat, Erico Saito; Kuromoto, Neide Kazue; dos Santos, Leonardo Luis; Chee, Bor Shin; Alves Claro, Anna Paula Rosifini; Mazzaro, Irineu; Nugent, Michael J.D. (Elsevier, 2020-01-25)
      Hydroxyapatite (HA) is a bioactive calcium phosphate capable of enhancing the implant/bone connection improving osteoconductivity and osseointegration process. However, the HA presents mechanical properties limiting its ...
