    Article
    Accés obert
    Titanium and its alloys are widely used in medical implants because of their excellent properties. However, bacterial infection is a frequent cause of titanium-based implant failure and also compromises its osseointegration. In ...
  • Comparative study of surface chemical composition and oxide layer modification upon oxygen plasma cleaning and piranha etching on a novel low elastic modulus Ti25Nb21Hf alloy 

    Paredes Méndez, Virginia Nathaly; Salvagni, Emiliano; Rodriguez Castellón, Enrique; Manero Planella, José María (2017-06-05)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Metals are widely employed for many biological artificial replacements, and it is known that the quality and the physical/chemical properties of the surface are crucial for the success of the implant. Therefore, control ...
  • Plasma-induced selectivity in bone cancer cells death 

    Canal Barnils, Cristina; Fontelo, Raul; Hamouda, Ines; Guillem Martí, Jordi; Cvelbar, Uros; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2017-09-01)
    Article
    Accés obert
    Background Current therapies for bone cancers - either primary or metastatic – are difficult to implement and unfortunately not completely effective. An alternative therapy could be found in cold plasmas generated at ...
  • A novel hybrid nanofibrous strategy to target progenitor cells for cost-effective: In situ angiogenesis 

    Sachot, Nadege; Castaño Linares, Óscar; Oliveira, Hugo; Martí Muñoz, Joan; Roguska, Agata; Amedee, Joelle; Lewandowska, Malgorzata; Planell Estany, Josep Anton; Engel López, Elisabeth (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-09-22)
    Article

    Although the impact of composites based on Ti-doped calcium phosphate glasses is low compared with that of bioglass, they have been already shown to possess great potential for bone tissue engineering. Composites made of ...
  • Real-time bioluminescence imaging of cell distribution, growth, and differentiation in a three-dimensional scaffold under interstitial perfusion for tissue engineering 

    Vila, Olaia; Garrido, Cristina; Guerra Rebollo, Marta; Navarro Toro, Melba; Meca-Cortes, O; Mas, S; Engel López, Elisabeth; Rubio, Nuria; Blanco, Jeronimo (2016-09-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Bioreactor systems allow safe and reproducible production of tissue constructs and functional analysis of cell behavior in biomaterials. However, current procedures for the analysis of tissue generated in biomaterials ...

    Titanium and its alloys are widely used in medical implants because of their excellent properties. However, bacterial infection is a frequent cause of titanium-based implant failure and also compromises its osseointegration. ...
  • 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 ...
