Applications of photothermally responsive composite materials
A composite material consisting of a thermally-sensitive hydrogel and optically active nanoparticles would possess the temperature sensitive characteristics of the NA copolymer as well as the absorption spectrum of the ...
Bone tissue engineering by cell and matrix transplantation
There is a current significant clinical need for bone replacement. Although some therapies and bone substitutes are in current use, their disadvantages provide a strong motivation for new approaches. The field of tissue ...
Development of an injectable, in situ crosslinkable, degradable polymeric carrier for osteogenic cell populations
An injectable, in situ crosslinkable, degradable polymeric carrier for osteogenic cell populations was developed. Specifically, a system for encapsulating marrow stromal osteoblasts in gelatin microspheres has been implemented ...
Pharmacologically active materials for localized nitric oxide therapy
Nitric oxide (NO) functions as a ubiquitous biological messenger and effector molecule. In humans, NO performs unique actions throughout the body; for example, NO may aid in the prevention of blood vessel re-occlusion, or ...
von Willebrand factor interaction with subendothelial collagens and platelet surface receptor GPIBalpha under shear conditions
The molecular mechanisms of binding interaction among von Willebrand factor, subendothelium and platelets under physiological shear conditions are important medically in hemostasis and thrombosis. By binding both subendothelial ...
