Biodegradable elastomers for biomedical applications and regenerative medicine
Bat, Erhan; Feijen, Jan; Grijpma, Dirk W.; Poot, Andre A. (Future Medicine Ltd, 2014-05-01)
Synthetic biodegradable polymers are of great value for the preparation of implants that are required to reside only temporarily in the body. The use of biodegradable polymers obviates the need for a second surgery to remove the implant, which is the case when a nondegradable implant is used. After implantation in the body, biomedical devices may be subjected to degradation and erosion. Understanding the mechanisms of these processes is essential for the development of biomedical devices or implants with a ...
Biotechnological modification of steroidal structures
Erkılıç, Umut; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Department of Biotechnology (2008)
Steroids are important biological regulators existing in hormones which are used to control metabolism of the body. There are widespread applications in the pharmaceutical industry. Drugs of steroid nature - anti-inflammatory and antiallergic corticosteroids, diuretics, anabolics, androgens, gestagens, contraceptives, antitumor medications, etc. - are now widely used in human and veterinary medicine. Nowadays, biotechnological modifications of steroids are preferred over chemical modifications as a green ch...
Biodegradable nanomats produced by electrospinning: Expanding multifunctionality and potential for tissue engineering
Ashammakhi, N.; Ndreu, A.; Piras, A. M.; Nikkola, L.; Sindelar, T.; Ylikauppila, H.; Harlin, A.; Gomes, M. E.; Neves, N. M.; Chiellini, E.; Chiellini, F.; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Redl, H.; Reis, R. L. (2007-03-01)
With increasing interest in nanotechnology, development of nanofibers (n-fibers) by using the technique of electrospinning is gaining new momentum. Among important potential applications of n-fiber-based structures, scaffolds for tissue-engineering represent an advancing front. Nanoscaffolds (n-scaffolds) are closer to natural extracellular matrix (ECM) and its nanoscale fibrous structure. Although the technique of electrospinning is relatively old, various improvements have been made in the last decades to...

Biochar-assisted transformation of engineered-cerium oxide nanoparticles: Effect on wheat growth, photosynthetic traits and cerium accumulation
Abbas, Qumber; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Ali, Muhammad Ubaid; Ullah, Habib; Munir, Mehr Ahmed Mujtaba; Ahmed, Rafay; Rehman, Abdul (2020-01-01)
The extensive use of nano-fabricated products in daily life is releasing a large volume of engineered nanoparticles (ENPs) in the environment having unknown consequences. Meanwhile, little efforts have been paid to immobilize and prevent the entry of these emerging contaminants in the food chain through plant uptake. Herein, we investigated the biochar role in cerium oxide nanoparticles (CeO(2)NPs) bioaccumulation and subsequent translocation in wheat (Triticum aestivurn L.) as well as impact on growth, pho...
