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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
