Biodegradable/bioabsorbable materials are a relatively new movement in the implantable medical device field. Despite the promise of non-permanent implants, bioabsorbable materials can induce a localized inflammatory immune response. To overcome this limitation, we are combining [...]
Activated carbon prepared from vitellaria paradoxa shell using ortho-phosphoric acid as activating agent was used for the removal of Cd (II) ions from aqueous solution. The adsorbent sample was characterized by some physicochemical and spectroscopic [...]
Over the past decade, rapid prototyping has migrated from the research and industrial labs into the homes of consumers. However, these solid models are limited in demonstrating dynamic actuation. A large range of soft materials [...]
Gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) bio-synthesized through microbial activities create biocompatible and non-toxic nanomaterials that may have great applications in analysis, catalysis, and biomedicine. Herein, we demonstrated that Pantoea sp. IMH can generate Au@biolayer core-shell nanoparticles. [...]
In the study, we employed the mussels’ glue component—dopamine and its excellent reducing ability toward silver ions, to create a novel antibacterial effect on a facial mask surface so as not to add harmful antiseptics [...]
Expansion of stem cells and maintenance of their self-renewal capacity in vitro requires specialized robust cell culture systems. Conventional approaches consisting of animal derived matrices and cocktail of growth factors have limitations such as consistency, [...]
We report the effects of one and two dimensional transition metal dichalcogenide nanoparticles, tungsten disulfide nanotubes (WSNTs) and molybdenum disulfide nanoplatelets (MSNPs), on fibroblastic cell (mouse fibroblasts (NIH-3T3) and human adipose derived stem cell (MSC)) [...]

Spongy scaffolds containing nano-Carbonated Hydroxyapatite (nCHA), with composition Ca10(PO4)6-y(CO3)y(OH)2,with y=2,4, were prepared by the lyophilization method. Different polymers, natural gelatin (G), chitosan (CS) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), alone or in combination, were used to make [...]
Titanium (Ti) and its alloys have long been used as implant materials in dental and orthopedic applications. However, they can suffer certain disadvantages, such as poor osteoinductive properties and low corrosive-wear resistance. The potential of [...]

The incredible progress and wide use of various medical devices during intravascular or cardiac interventions increased the need for administration of anticoagulants, such as heparins. Protamine sulfate – a protein isolated from salmons is the [...]
