    © 2016 The Authors. Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are widely used in bone repair. Currently there are two main types of CPCs, brushite and apatite. The aim of this project was to evaluate the mechanical properties of ...
  • Elastic properties and strain-to-crack-initiation of calcium phosphate bone cements: revelations of a high-resolution measurement technique 

    Ajaxon, Ingrid; Acciaioli, A.; Lionello, G.; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Ohman, Caroline; Baleani, M.; Persson, Cecilia (Elsevier, 2017-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) should ideally have mechanical properties similar to those of the bone tissue the material is used to replace or repair. Usually, the compressive strength of the CPCs is reported and, more ...
  • Evaluation of a porosity measurement method for wet calcium phosphate cements 

    Ajaxon, Ingrid; Maazouz, Yassine; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Ohman, Caroline; Persson, Cecilia (2015)
    Article
    Open Access

    The porosity of a calcium phosphate cement is a key parameter as it affects several important properties of the cement. However, a successful, non-destructive porosity measurement method that does not include drying has ...
  • Evaluation of bone formation in calcium phosphate scaffolds with mu CT-method validation using SEM 

    Lewin, Susanne; Barba Martí, Antonio; Persson, Cecilia; Franch Serracanta, Jordi; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau; Ohman, Caroline (2017-12-01)

    There is a plethora of calcium phosphate (CaP) scaffolds used as synthetic substitutes to bone grafts. The scaffold performance is often evaluated from the quantity of bone formed within or in direct contact with the ...
  • Heparinization of beta tricalcium phosphate: osteo-immunomodulatory effects 

    Díez Escudero, Anna; Español Pons, Montserrat; Bonany Mariñosa, Mar; Persson, Cecilia; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2018-03-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    Immune cells play a vital role in regulating bone dynamics. This has boosted the interest in developing biomaterials that can modulate both the immune and skeletal systems. In this study, calcium phosphates discs (i.e., ...
  • 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. ...
  • Osteoinduction by foamed and 3D-printed calcium phosphate scaffolds: effect of nanostructure and pore architecture 

    Barba Serrahima, Albert; Díez Escudero, Anna; Maazouz, Yassine; Rappe, K.; Español Pons, Montserrat; Montufar Jiménez, Edgar Benjamin; Bonany Mariñosa, Mar; Sadowska, Joanna Maria; Guillem Martí, Jordi; Ohman, Caroline; Persson, Cecilia; Manzanares, Maria Cristina; Franch Serracanta, Jordi; Ginebra Molins, Maria Pau (2017-12-06)
