Antibacterial Nanostructured Polyhydroxybutyrate Membranes for Guided Bone Regeneration
Karahaliloglu, Zeynep; Ercan, Batur; Taylor, Erik N.; Chung, Stanley; DENKBAŞ, EMİR BAKİ; Webster, Thomas J. (2015-12-01)
The principle of guided bone regeneration (GBR) in orthopedic, cranio-maxillofacial and dental tissue engineering applications is to create a secluded space for the treatment of large bone defects while excluding fibrous connective tissue formation at the defect area. In dental surgeries, a GBR membrane is placed near the dental implant in post-extraction sockets to grow new bone at the implant site, along with inhibiting infection due to the microbial nature of the mouth flora. Poly[(R)-3-hydroxybutyric ac...
Antimicrobial aptamers for detection and inhibition of microbial pathogen growth
Ozalp, Veli Cengiz; Bilecen, Kivanc; Kavruk, Murat; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni (Future Medicine Ltd, 2013-03-01)
Discovery of alternative sources of antimicrobial agents are essential in the ongoing battle against microbial pathogens. Legislative and scientific challenges considerably hinder the discovery and use of new antimicrobial drugs, and new approaches are in urgent demand. On the other hand, rapid, specific and sensitive detection of airborne pathogens is becoming increasingly critical for public health. In this respect affinity oligonucleotides, aptamers, provide unique opportunities for the development of na...
Antimicrobial modifications of poly(ether sulfone) membrane

Fouling on a membrane is one of the major problems of liquid filtration systems. To solve this problem, physical treatments and modifications are applied on membranes. Biofouling is the most severe form of fouling, which is due to biofilms of microorganisms in a matrix of extracellular polymers they secrete. Biofilm formation has been attacked by periodic cleaning of membrane, disinfection of feed, and surface modification. In this study, we proposed an antimicrobial surface modification to prevent biofilm ...

An N-halamine precursor, m-aminophenyl hydantoin (m-APH), which was rendered antimicrobial through exposure to chlorine bleach, was synthesized and was applied on cotton fabric using polycarboxylic acids as crosslinking agents. Particularly, 1,2,3,4-butanetetracarboxylic acid (BTCA) with m-APH treated cotton fabric resulted in the highest increased wrinkle recovery angle and chlorine content simultaneously. Durability and rechargeability were measured through an AATCC test method and antimicrobial efficacy ...
