Osteogenic Properties of 3D-Printed Silica-Carbon-Calcite Composite Scaffolds: Novel Approach for Personalized Bone Tissue Regeneration
Memarian, Parastoo; Sartor, Francesco; Bernardo, Enrico; Elsayed, Hamada; Ercan, Batur; Delogu, Lucia Gemma; Zavan, Barbara; Isola, Maurizio (2021-01-01)
Carbon enriched bioceramic (C-Bio) scaffolds have recently shown exceptional results in terms of their biological and mechanical properties. The present study aims at assessing the ability of the C-Bio scaffolds to affect ...
Fabrication and cellular interactions of nanoporous tantalum oxide
Uslu, Ece; Öztatlı, Hayriye; Garipcan, Bora; Ercan, Batur (Wiley, 2020-10-01)
Tantalum possesses remarkable chemical and mechanical properties, and thus it is considered to be one of the next generation implant materials. However, the biological properties of tantalum remain to be improved for its u...
Facile control of hydroxyapatite particle morphology by utilization of calcium carbonate templates at room temperature
Oral, Çağatay M.; Çalışkan, Arda; Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-09-01)
Hydroxyapatite (HAp, Ca-10(PO4)(6)(OH)(2)) particles are widely used in orthopedic applications due to their chemical resemblance to the inorganic component of bone tissue. Since physical and chemical properties of HAp par...
Calcium carbonate polymorph dictates in vitro osteoblast proliferation
Oral, Cagatay M.; Ercan, Batur; KAPUSUZ, DERYA (2020-06-11)
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) is a widely used material in biomedical applications owing to its biocompatibility and widespread occurrence in nature, especially in the exoskeletons of marine organisms. The ability to undergo p...
Mineral-Doped Poly(L-lactide) Acid Scaffolds Enriched with Exosomes Improve Osteogenic Commitment of Human Adipose-Derived Mesenchymal Stem Cells
Gandolfi, Maria Giovanna; Gardin, Chiara; Zamparini, Fausto; Ferroni, Letizia; Esposti, Micaela Degli; Parchi, Greta; Ercan, Batur; Manzoli, Lucia; Fava, Fabio; Fabbri, Paola; Prati, Carlo; Zavan, Barbara (2020-03-01)
Exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem cells are extracellular vesicles released to facilitate cell communication and function. Recently, polylactic acid (PLA), calcium silicates (CaSi), and dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (...
Synthesis of calcium carbonate microspheres via inert gas bubbling for orthopedic applications
Oral, Cagatay M.; Caliskan, Arda; Goctu, Yagmur; KAPUSUZ, DERYA; Ercan, Batur (Elsevier BV, 2020-02-15)
Calcium carbonate (CaCO3) microspheres consisting of vaterite polymorph have been widely used in biomedical applications. Specifically, vaterite microspheres having hollow cores showed significant potential in drug deliver...
Fabrication and characterization of nanostructure on 316L stainless steel via anodization
Erdogan, Yasar Kemal; Ercan, Batur (null; 2019-12-31)
316L stainless steel is most commonly used biomaterials for cardiovascular stents. Despite its widespread use in clinics, bare stainless steel stents experience problems after implantation i.e. such as nickel ion release, ...
Efficient fabrication of ultrafine-grained 316L stainless steel surfaces for orthopaedic applications
Tufan, Yiğithan; Demir, Eyüp Can; Efe, Mert; Ercan, Batur (Informa UK Limited, 2019-10-13)
Commonly used severe plastic deformation (SPD) methods are suitable for fabrication of bulk nano and ultrafine-grained metals. Drawbacks of these methods include durability of dies, geometrical restrictions and reduced duc...
Enhanced stability of hollow calcium carbonate microspheres via polymorphic control for orthopedic applications
Oral, Cağatay Mert; Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (2019-09-30)
Calcium Phosphate Mineralization on Calcium Carbonate Particle Incorporated Silk-Fibroin Composites
Kapusuz, Derya; Ercan, Batur (2019-09-01)
In this study, three anhydrous forms of calcium carbonate, namely vaterite, aragonite and calcite, with distinct morphologies were incorporated inside silk-fibroin to fabricate composite scaffolds for tissue engineering ap...
