Preparation and investigation of nano- carbonated hydroxyapatite/polymer composite spongy scaffolds for biomedical applications

, , , , , , , , , ,
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 [...]

Biological influence of nanofibrous hydroxyapatite-polycaprolactone membrane on human periodontal ligament cell

, , , , , , , ,
This study was performed to evaluate the effect of hydroxyapatite-coated nanofibrous polycaprolactone membrane on proliferation and differentiation of periodontal ligament cell which is necessary for periodontal regeneration. Hydroxyapatite-coated nanofibrous polycaprolactone membrane was fabricated through electrospinning [...]
