Advanced Biomaterials VII
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This “Advanced Biomaterials” collection comprises more than 237 peer-reviewed papers. The latter are grouped into handy sections: Tissue Engineering, Drug Delivery System, Metal, Ceramics, Polymer, Cell-Matrix Interactions, Surface Modifications, Micro-/Nano- and Others.
Overall, this book offers a multitude of valuable insights into the important progress being made daily in this subject-area.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: A total of 237 papers from an August 2007 symposium are collected here, in sections on tissue engineering, drug delivery systems, metal, ceramics, polymers, cell-matrix interactions, surface modifications, and micro- and nanomaterials. Some specific areas examined include cartilage tissue engineering using an elastic poly scaffold, PEGylation of conjugated linoleic acid and its applications as an anti-cancer pro-drug, receptor-mediated gene delivery using chitosan derivatives in vitro and in vivo, fabrication of a bio-composite drug delivery system using rapid prototype technology, and studies of the interface between oxide film on the titanium surface and bone tissue. Other topics include the effect of glass phase on defect formation during the dissolution of hydroxyapatite, hydrogel composed of chitosan and cyclodextrin, the effect of different hydroxyapatite particles on malignant melanoma cell behavior, and the effect of solvent on the characteristics of electrospun regenerated silk fibroin nanofibers.
