Abstract In the context of surface modification of implants by TiO2 nanotubes, the topography of the nanotubes has been considered as a sole modulator of cellular response of adherent cells. However, a recent report has indicated about the existence of other contributing factors. Keeping this contradiction in mind, here we have performed a comprehensive study to account the contribution of the various factors such as morphological aspects, physico chemical aspects and the topographical features ...

Abstract The TiO 2 based photocatalyst has great potential for the disinfection/inactivation of harmful pathogens (such as E.coli in aqueous media) along with its well-known usefulness on various chemical pollutants. The disinfection property of TiO 2 is primarily attributed to surface generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as free metal ions formation. Furthermore, its disinfection capacity and overall performance can be significantly improved through modifications of the TiO 2 mat...

Signaling through the Ror2 receptor tyrosine kinase promotes invadopodia formation for tumor invasion. Here, we identify intraflagellar transport 20 (IFT20) as a new target of this signaling in tumors that lack primary cilia, and find that IFT20 mediates the ability of Ror2 signaling to induce the invasiveness of these tumors. We also find that IFT20 regulates the nucleation of Golgi-derived microtubules by affecting the GM130-AKAP450 complex, which promotes Golgi ribbon formation in achieving p...

Abstract Titanium and its alloys are widely used as bone implants due to their superb properties, such as very good biocompatibility, excellent corrosion resistance and a relatively low elastic modulus. However, bonding between a bone tissue and an implant occurs via titanium oxide created on the surface of Ti, which is a long-lasting process. Therefore, creating an implantable surface with a porous TiO2 layer directly on the Ti substrate seems to be a good solution. Moreover, nanostructured tit...

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanotube arrays are attracting increasing attention for use in solar cells, lithium-ion batteries, and biomedical implants. To take full advantage of their unique physical properties, such arrays need to maintain adequate mechanical integrity in applications. However, the mechanical performance of TiO2 nanotube arrays is not well understood. In this work, we investigate the deformation and failure of TiO2 nanotube arrays using the nanoindentation technique. We found that ...

To compare the effectiveness and safety of medium-dose (MD) and high-dose (HD) prednisone regimens and to identify factors related to remission with a target maintenance dose of prednisone in patients with giant cell arteritis (GCA).Retrospective cohort study conducted in an autoimmune diseases unit. Patients received ≤ 30 mg (MD group) or >30 mg (HD group) of daily prednisone as monotherapy or combined with methylprednisolone pulses and/or methotrexate, at the discretion of the physician.

This paper reviews the state of the art of anodized titanium dioxide nanotubes (TiO2 NTs), with an emphasis on the growth mechanism leading to their formation and the effect of heat treatment on their structure and properties. The discussion is primarily focused on TiO2 NTs grown in fluoride containing electrolytes, although the mechanism of formation of NTs in fluoride free solutions via Rapid Breakdown Anodization (RBA) is briefly covered. After an initial overview of progress made on the synt...

For the past 25 years NIH Image and ImageJ software have been pioneers as open tools for the analysis of scientific images. We discuss the origins, challenges and solutions of these two programs, and how their history can serve to advise and inform other software projects.

β-type titanium alloys with low Young's modulus are required to inhibit bone atrophy and enhance bone remodeling for implants used to substitute failed hard tissue. At the same time, these titanium alloys are required to have high static and dynamic strength. On the other hand, metallic biomaterials with variable Young's modulus are required to satisfy the needs of both patients and surgeons, namely, low and high Young's moduli, respectively. In this paper, we have discussed effective methods to...

Mechanism of copper nanostructuring by oxides and hydroxide formation during anodizing is not fully understood. At the same time, the search for novel copper anodizing regimes and electrolytes is ongoing due to multiple potential applications. In this work copper anodizing in two electrode setups, in stirred 0.01 M solution of NaHCO3 at 20 °C and at voltages ranging from 5 to 40 V was explored. The morphology and composition of prepared materials were studied using FE-SEM imaging and XRD measure...

Bacterial implant-related infections have been pointed out as the leading cause of metal implant failure. Recently, nanotexturization of biomaterials surface associated with antibiotic loading revealed itself as a promising strategy for enhancing osseointegration while mitigating bacterial infections. However, fewer studies describe the effects of multi-step local drug delivery. This study investigates 1 mg Cefazolin Sodium (CS) release from anodic nanotextured titanium-based devices and the eff...

Abstract Well-adhered nanotube arrays were produced through the anodizing technique on a Ti-25Nb-25Ta alloy and tribo-mechanically evaluated by nanoindentation and nanoscratch tests. Disregarding substrate effects, the hardness of the nanotube arrays layer was 0.7 ± 0.1 GPa and elastic modulus was
