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 [...]

TiO2 Nanowired Cerebrolysin enhances neuroprotective effects of mesenchymal stem cells following concussive head injury at hot environments

, , , , , , , , , , , ,
Concussive head injury (CHI) could lead to either instant death or lifetime disabilities. Our soldiers are highly vulnerable to CHI during combat operations. Thus, to treat these soldiers effectively novel strategies using combination therapy is [...]
