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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
