PurposeThe aim of this study was to screen specific adherent matrix for endothelialprogenitor cells (EPCs), which can be used for antibody capturingstents.MethodsIn this study, the adhesion of EPCs on different matrices containing threedifferent antibodies, VEGFR-2, CD34, CD133, was observed...
PurposeThe aim of this work is to develop a 3D finite elements model to study the nanomechanical behavior of mineralized collagen microfibrils, which consists of three phases, (i) collagen phase formed by five tropocollagen (TC) molecules linked together with cross-links, (ii) a mineral phase...
PurposeExperimental tests have played a major role in the assessment of fatigue endurance of orthopedic prostheses; however, cyclic tests on devices entail high costs. Here, a multiaxial fatigue criterion coupled with computational simulations and material properties measurements has been...
A complete morphologic characterization of porous scaffolds for tissue engineering application is fundamental, as the architectural parameters, in particular porosity, strongly affect the mechanical and biological performance of the structures. Therefore, appropriate techniques for this purpose...
PurposeSince bacterial pollution is more troublesome than other nonbiologic air pollutants, the need to control airborne micro-organisms has led to renewed interest in filter media for air filtration in indoor environments. Although mechanical filtration of aerosols by HEPA systems is the most...
AimIn this work, we report the use of plasticized polyvinyl chloride (PVC) as a potential antifouling coating material. The materials contain a variety of sebacic and succinic acid-derived plasticizers providing a variation in molecular shape and structure; diethyl succinate (DESn),...
The use of biomaterials in dentistry is more widespread than in any other medical field in terms of both amount and variety.Most of them were not originally designed for dental applications but for other medical applications or, sometimes, for no medical purposes.Among these materials,...
