Nanoparticles Based on Plasma Proteins for Drug Delivery Applications
Tezcaner, Ayşen; Keskin, Dilek (2016-01-01)
Background: Nanoparticulate delivery systems receive a lot of attention in pharmaceutical research and market due to their in vivo stability, ability to protect entrapped drug, and ease of cellular penetration. The hemo-compatibility and the clearance half-life are important parameters of the nanodelivery systems that will be administered through intravenous route. Natural components, like blood plasma proteins are ideal sources of biomaterial for such systems with their long in vivo half-lives. Methods: Th...
Nanofeatured silk fibroin membranes for dermal wound healing applications
Karahaliloglu, Zeynep; Ercan, Batur; DENKBAŞ, EMİR BAKİ; Webster, Thomas J. (2015-01-01)
As an effort to create the next generation of improved skin graft materials, in this study, we modified the surfaces of a previously investigated material, silk fibroin, using a NaOH alkaline treatment to obtain a biologically inspired nanofeatured surface morphology. Such surfaces were characterized for roughness, energy, and chemistry. In addition, keratinocyte (skin-forming cells) adhesion and proliferation on such nanofeatured silk fibroin wound dressings were studied in an initial attempt to determine ...
Nanofeature Size and Morphology of Tantalum Oxide Surfaces Control Osteoblast Functions
USLU, ECE; Mimiroğlu, Didem; Ercan, Batur (2021-01-01)
Tantalum is one of the most corrosion-resistant materials and has mechanical properties that are suitable for orthopedic applications. However, tantalum exhibits bioinert characteristics and cannot promote the desired level of osseointegration with juxtaposed bone tissues. To enhance the bioactivity of tantalum, nanoscale surface modifications via anodization could be a potential approach. In this study, surface features having nanotubular, nanodimple, and nanocoral morphologies were fabricated onto tantalu...
Nanobiomaterial applications in orthopedics
Christenson, Elizabeth M.; Anseth, Kristi S.; Van Den Beucken, Leroen J. J. P.; Chan, Casey K.; Ercan, Batur; Jansen, John A.; Laurencin, Cato T.; Li, Wan-Ju; Murugan, Ramalingam; Nair, Lakshmi S.; Ramakrishna, Seeram; Tuan, Rocky S.; Webster, Thomas J.; Mikos, Antonios G. (2007-01-01)
Advancements in nanobiotechnology are revolutionizing our capability to understand biological intricacies and resolve biological and medical problems by developing subtle biomimetic techniques. Nanocomposites and nanostructured materials are believed to play a pivotal role in orthopedic research since bone itself is a typical example of a nanocomposite. This article reviews current strategies using nanobiomaterials to improve current orthopedic materials and examines their applications in bone tissue engine...
