Nanobiomaterials: a review of the existing science and technology, and new approaches
Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Zorlutuna, P.; Ndreu, A.; Yilgor, P.; Basmanav, F. B.; Aydin, E. (2006-01-01)
Nanotechnology has made great strides forward in the creation of new surfaces, new materials and new forms which also find application in the biomedical field. Traditional biomedical applications started benefiting from the use nanotechnology in an array of areas, such as biosensors, tissue engineering, controlled release systems, intelligent systems and nanocomposites used in implant design. In this manuscript a review of developments in these areas will be provided along with some applications from our la...
PCL-TCP wet spun scaffolds carrying antibiotic-loaded microspheres for bone tissue engineering

Scaffolds produced for tissue engineering applications are proven to be promising alternatives to be used in healing and regeneration of injured tissues and organs. In this study, porous and fibrous poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds were prepared by wet spinning technique and modified by addition of tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and by immobilizing gelatin onto fibers. Meanwhile, gelatin microspheres carrying Ceftriaxone sodium (CS), a model antibiotic, were added onto the scaffolds and antimicrobial ...
Enhancing biocompatibility of tantalum via anodization for orthopedic applications
Uslu, Ece; Ercan, Batur (null; 2018-12-06)
Tantalum and its alloys have been investigated as the next generation of orthopedic implant materials in the last decade. Being a valve metal, tantalum forms a naturally occurring stable oxide layer approximately 3-5 nm on its surface at ambient conditions and this layer both prevents heavy ion release from the metal and provides a natural barrier for implant corrosion. In fact, due to its chemically inert nature, tantalum has the highest corrosion resistance of all metals used in orthopedic applications. T...
Wet spun PCL scaffolds for tissue engineering
Malikmammadov, Elbay; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Endoğan Tanır, Tuğba; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2017)
Scaffolds produced for tissue engineering applications are promising alternatives to be used in healing and regeneration of injured tissues and organs. In this study, fibrous poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds were prepared by wet spinning technique and modified by addition of β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) and by immobilizing gelatin onto fibers. Meanwhile, gelatin microspheres carrying Ceftriaxone sodium (CS), a model antibiotic, were added onto the scaffolds and antimicrobial activity of CS was investi...
