HYPOTHESIS Injuries requiring resection of tissue followed by autogenous bone transfer may be prone to infection by Staphylococcus aureus, impeding recovery and increasing medical costs. For critical sized defects, the common approach to reconstruction is a tissue transfer procedure but is subject to limitations (e.g., donor site morbidity, cost, operating time). Utilizing beta tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) as bone grafting material augmented with silver (Ag), a custom graft may be 3D printed to ...
Wollastonite with/without maghemite [(Fe2O3), 0, 3 and 10 wt%] was prepared by facile wet precipitation method. Effect of Fe2O3 presence in the obtained nano-ceramics on physical structure, morphology, size and the mechanical features was evaluated using X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscope, and universal testing machine. Moreover, the in vitro biomineralization was examined using simulated body fluid (SBF) by means of scanning electron microscope/energy dispersive X-ray, Fourier ...

This study investigated the production of phosphate glass fiber/polylactic acid (PGF/PLA) commingled yarns, textiles and composites for biomedical applications. The PGF volume contents of the composites investigated were 25% and 40%. Plain weave textiles with yarn counts of 10 warp/cm and 6 weft/cm were produced using a commercial weaving machine. An orthogonal array design (OAD) was employed as a statistical method to investigate the effects of compression molding parameters (processing tempera...

In this work, it is the first time to study the effect of replacing of Na2 O by a fixed amount of Li2 O or K2 O in soda-lime-borate glass on its in vivo biocompatibility. The glass composition was based on xM2 O-20x Na2 O20 CaO60 B2 O3 , (wt %), where, M2 OLi2 O and K2 O, and consequently, samples encoded BN100, BK50, and BL50. The degradation test was carried out in 0.25 M K2 HPO4 solution. The in vivo test was performed in the femoral bone defect of Sprague-Dawley adult male rat. Following...

Skin wounds have been a public health concern of high frequency, in addition to requiring intensive and expensive care. The natural rubber latex (NRL) from Hancornia speciosa Gomes has been used to treat many problems in traditional medicine and also present healing properties, antifungal and anti-inflammatory activity and antinociceptive effects. The purpose of this study was to characterize the new biomembrane from the NRL of H. speciosa (HS) by Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and mechanical...

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a serious debilitating condition with significant morbidity and mortality affecting almost one billion adults globally. The current gold standard in the non-surgical management of airway collapse is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). However, non-compliance leads to a high abandon rate (27-46%). While there are multiple sites of airway obstruction during sleep, the tongue base is recognized as the key player in the pathogenesis of OSA. Poor outcomes of ...

This study reports the differences in the protein composition of salivary pellicles formed under in situ conditions on two Titanium (Ti) surfaces, with different roughness and wettability. Smooth pretreatment Ti surfaces (Ti-PT) with an average roughness (Ra) of 0.45 μm and a water contact angle (WCA) of 92.4°, as well as a more rough sandblasted, large grit, acid-etched treatment Ti surfaces (Ti-SLA) with a Ra of 3.3 μm and WCA of 131.8°, were tested. The salivary pellicles were quantitatively ...

Zinc is emerging as a promising biodegradable metal for temporary implant applications. In this work, we investigate the influence of bovine serum albumin (BSA)-the most abundant blood protein in simulated body fluid (SBF) on degradation of pure Zn via electrochemical measurements and long-term immersion. Electrochemical experiments indicate a decrease of the corrosion rate of bare Zn with increasing BSA concentration in solution for short-term exposures. Samples were characterized with scanning...

Cardiomyocyte like cells derived from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC-CMs) have a good application perspective in many fields such as disease modeling, drug screening and clinical treatment. However, these are severely hampered by the fact that hPSC-CMs are immature compared to adult human cardiomyocytes. Therefore, many approaches such as genetic manipulation, biochemical factors supplement, mechanical stress, electrical stimulation and three-dimensional culture have been developed to promot...

Natural egg white tis widely used as an ingredient in nutritional foods and for food processing. Due to its characteristic foaming, emulsification, adhesion, and gelation, and its heat setting, biocompatibility, and low cost, research into the application and development of egg white in biomaterials, especially medical biomaterials, have been receiving attention. The composition and characteristics of egg white protein, and the physical mixing and chemically cross-linking of egg white with other...
