  • Influence of Si substitution on the reactivity of a-tricalcium phosphate 

    Motisuke, Mariana; Mestres, Gemma; Renó, Caroline O.; Carrodeguas, Raúl G.; Zavaglia, Cecilia; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (Elsevier, 2017-06-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Silicon substituted calcium phosphates have been widely studied over the last ten years due to their enhanced osteogenic properties. Notwithstanding, the role of silicon on a-TCP reactivity is not clear yet. Therefore, the ...
  • Layer-by-layer bioassembly of cellularized polylactic acid porous 3 membranes for bone tissue engineering 

    Guduric, Vera; Metz, Carole; Robin, Siadous; Bareille, Reine; Levato, Riccardo; Engel López, Elisabeth; Fricain, Jean-Christophe; Devillard, Raphaël; Luzanin, Ognjan; Catros, Sylvain (Springer, 2017-03-22)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The conventional tissue engineering is based on seeding of macroporous scaffold on its surface (“top–down” approach). The main limitation is poor cell viability in the middle of the scaffold due to poor diffusion of oxygen ...
  • Antibacterial PHAs coating for titanium implants 

    Rodriguez Contreras, Alejandra; Garcia, Yolanda; Manero Planella, José María; Rupérez de Gracia, Elisa (2017-05-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Biomaterial-associated infection is a serious complication of modern implantation surgery. Thus, the improvement of implant surfaces is required to avoid the first stage for biofilm formation, bacterial adhesion. The current ...
  • Osteoclast differentiation from human blood precursors on biomimetic calcium-phosphate substrates 

    Ciapetti, Gabriela; Pompo, Gemma di; Avnet, Sofia; Martini, Desirée; Díez Escudero, Anna; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Baldini, Nicola (2017-03-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The design of synthetic bone grafts to foster bone formation is a challenge in regenerative medicine. Understanding the interaction of bone substitutes with osteoclasts is essential, since osteoclasts not only drive a ...
  • Cell adhesive peptides functionalized on CoCr alloy stimulate endothelialization and prevent thrombogenesis and restenosis 

    Castellanos, Maria Isabel; Guillem Martí, Jordi; Mas Moruno, Carlos; Díaz Ricart, Maribel; Escolar Albaladejo, Ginés; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Gil Mur, Francisco Javier; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta; Manero Planella, José María (2017-04-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Immobilization of bioactive peptide sequences on CoCr surfaces is an effective route to improve endothelialization, which is of great interest for cardiovascular stents. In this work, we explored the effect of physical and ...
  • Modular bioink for 3D printing of biocompatible hydrogels: sol-gel polymerization of hybrid peptides and polymers 

    Echalier, Cecile; Levato, Riccardo; Mateos Timoneda, Miguel Ángel; Castaño Linares, Óscar; Dejean, S; Garric, X; Pinese, C; Noël, D; Engel López, Elisabeth; Martinez, J; Mehdi, A; Subra, Gilles (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-02-21)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    An unprecedented generic system allowing the 3D printing of peptide-functionalized hydrogels by soft sol–gel inorganic polymerization is presented. Hybrid silylated inorganic/bioorganic blocks are mixed in biological buffer ...
  • Focus ion beam/scanning electron microscopy characterization of osteoclastic resorption of calcium phosphate substrates 

    Díez Escudero, Anna; Español Pons, Montserrat; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Pompo, Gemma di; Ciapetti, Gabriela; Baldini, Nicola; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2017-02-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This article presents the application of dual focused ion beam/scanning electron microscopy (FIB-SEM) imaging for preclinical testing of calcium phosphates with osteoclast precursor cells and how this high-resolution imaging ...
  • Roughness and wettability effect on histological and mechanical response of self-drilling orthodontic mini-implants 

    Espinar-Escalona, Eduardo; Bravo-Gonzalez, Luis-Alberto; Pegueroles Neyra, Marta; Gil Mur, Francisco Javier (2016-06-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Self-drilling orthodontic mini-implants can be used as temporary devices for orthodontic treatments. Our main goal was to evaluate surface characteristics, roughness and wettability, of surface modified mini-implants to ...
  • Extent and mechanism of phase separation during the extrusion of calcium phosphate pastes 

    O'Neill, Rory; McCarthy, Hellen O.; Cunningham, Eoin; Montufar Jimenez, Edgar Benjamin; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Wilson, Ian; Lennon, Alex; Dunne, Nicholas (Springer, 2016-02)
    Article
    Accés obert
    The aim of this study was to increase understanding of the mechanism and dominant drivers influencing phase separation during ram extrusion of calcium phosphate (CaP) paste for orthopaedic applications. The liquid content ...
  • avß3- or a5ß1-Integrin-Selective Peptidomimetics for Surface Coating 

    Mas Moruno, Carlos; Fraioli, Roberta; Rechenmacher, Florian; Neubauer, Stefanie; Kapp, Tobias G.; Kessler, Horst (2016-06-13)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Engineering biomaterials with integrin-binding activity is a very powerful approach to promote cell adhesion, modulate cell behavior, and induce specific biological responses at the surface level. The aim of this Review ...
