How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Ceramic coatings have been widely investigated as a means to reduce wear and metallic ion release from joint implants. Silicon nitride-based coatings have been a topic of interest specifically due to their solubility in aqueous solutions. This could imply a reduced adverse immune response since the generated debris would dissolve. However, there ar...
I would like to do a co-culture of microglia and astrocytes for making a model of spinal cord inflammation. We have some concerns regarding compatibility between them. We want to be sure they can grow together in a culture.
Can anybody suggest good microglial and astrocytes cell lines for that?
Most of the studies use primary cells or stem cells for modelling the spinal cord, but as I never worked with these cells, I would like to start with a cell line. Can anybody suggest a good microglial cell line?
Thanks in advance!
The growing elderly and more active population puts higher demands on implants, which need to last longer and withstand more severe loading conditions. In the spine, mechanical resistance and biocompatibility are especially important due to the vicinity of sensitive tissues such as the spinal cord and nerves. NU-SPINE aims to deliver novel material compositions with a higher degree of biocompatibility as well as novel implant designs adapted to the local loading situation.
