Tumor-selective hybrid system based on hydroxyapatite nanocarrier, chitosan, poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) and androstan derivate
(Belgrade : Materials Research Society of Serbia, 2016)
The applicative potential of synthetic calcium phosphates, especially hydroxyapatite (HAp), has become intensely broadened in the past 10 years, from bone tissue engineering to multiple other fields of biomedicine. Previously ...
Chitosan-PLGA polymer blends as coatings for hydroxyapatite nanoparticles and their effect on antimicrobial properties, osteoconductivity and regeneration of osseous tissues
(Materials science & engineering. C, Materials for biological applications, 2016)
Composite biomaterials comprising nanostructured hydroxyapatite (HAp) have an enormous potential for natural bone tissue reparation, filling and augmentation. Chitosan (Ch) as a naturally derived polymer has many physicochemical ...
In Vitro Evaluation of Nanoscale Hydroxyapatite-Based Bone Reconstructive Materials with Antimicrobial Properties
(American Scientific Publishers, 2016)
In the field of oral implantology the loss of bone tissue prevents adequate patient care, and calls for the use of synthetic biomaterials with properties that resemble natural bone. Special attention is paid to the risk ...
Hydrothermally processed 1D hydroxyapatite: Mechanism of formation and biocompatibility studies
(Materials Science and Engineering: C, 2016)
Recent developments in bone tissue engineering have led to an increased interest in one-dimensional (1D) hydroxyapatite (HA) nano- and micro-structures such as wires, ribbons and tubes. They have been proposed for use as ...
Selective anticancer activity of hydroxyapatite/chitosan-poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide particles loaded with an androstane-based cancer inhibitor
(Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 2016)
In an earlier study we demonstrated that hydroxyapatite nanoparticles coated with chitosan-poly(d,l)-lactide-co-glycolide (HAp/Ch-PLGA) target lungs following their intravenous injection into mice. In this study we utilize ...
