    Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are extensively used as synthetic bone grafts, but their poor toughness limits their use to non-load-bearing applications. Reinforcement through introduction of fibers and yarns has been ...
  • Inflammatory response to nano- and microstructured hydroxyapatite 

    Mestres, Gemma; Español Pons, Montserrat; xia, wei; Persson, Cecilia; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Karlsson Ott, Marjam (2015-04-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    The proliferation and activation of leukocytes upon contact with a biomaterial play a crucial role in the degree of inflammatory response, which may then determine the clinical failure or success of an implanted biomaterial. ...
  • 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
    Open Access
    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 ...
