The effect of the androstane lung cancer inhibitor content on the cell-selective toxicity of hydroxyapatite-chitosan-PLGA nanocomposites
An androstane (17β-hydroxy-17α-picolyl-androst-5-en-3β-yl-acetate (derivative A)) cancer inhibitor was successfully captured in a carrier made of nano-sized hydroxyapatite (HAp) coated with chitosan-PLGA polymer blends ...
Multifunctional hydroxyapatite and poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) nanoparticles for the local delivery of cholecalciferol
Cholecalciferol, vitamin D3, plays an important role in bone metabolism by regulating extracellular levels of calcium. Presented here is a study on the effects of the local delivery of cholecalciferol (D3) using nanoparticulate ...
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 ...
