Titanium (Ti) surface, with an essentially bioinert character, is not easy to actively initiate interactions with surrounding biological tissue. In this study, we developed a novel surface modification to enhance the osteogenic response to Ti surface in orthopedic and dental implant applications. The proposed surface modification combined alkaline...

Our objective in this study was to promote the growth of bone cells on biomedical titanium (Ti) implant surfaces via surface modification involving sandblasting, alkaline etching, and type I collagen immobilization using the natural cross-linker genipin. The resulting surface was characterized in terms topography, roughness, wettability, and functi...

The biomimetic synthesis of carbonated apatites by biomolecule-based templates is a promising way for broadening apatite applications in bone tissue regeneration. In this work, heparin was used as an organic template to prepare uniform carbonate-based apatite nanorods (CHA) and graft ferulic acid (F-CHA) for enhanced bone mineralization. Next, by c...

Our objective in this study was to promote cell responses through the immobilization of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) on roughened zirconia (ZrO2) through using the natural cross-linker genipin in dental implant applications. Field emission scanning electron microscope, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and attenuated total reflection-Fourie...
Article
Zirconia (ZrO2) dental implants provide good biocompatibility, have good corrosion resistance, and have a color that is similar to that of natural teeth. Unfortunately, ZrO2 is a bioinert material and therefore achieves osseointegration difficultly. In this study, we sought to enhance osseointegration by producing rough ZrO2 surfaces that contain h...
Article
Titanium (Ti) is a biocompatible alloy widely used in dental implants, thanks to the protective Ti oxide film that forms spontaneously on the surface. Unfortunately, the film is bioinert and prone to the release of metal ions. In a previous study, we applied oxygen plasma immersion ion implantation (O-PIII) treatment to Ti surface to enhance the co...
Article
Our aim in this study was to enhance the corrosion resistance and biocompatibility of Ti surfaces by producing a multifunctional hybrid layer of biphasic calcium phosphates (BCPs)/tantalum pentoxide (Ta2O5) on Ti surfaces for orthopedic implant applications. It is known that the biological response to calcium phosphate is exceptional; the stability...
Article
In this study, we investigated various responses of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) to a low elastic modulus Ti-24Nb-4Zr-8Sn (Ti2448) alloy surface that underwent immobilization using the natural cross-linker genipin. Specifically, hMSC's adhesion, proliferation, mineralization, and differentiation were evaluated. We also analyzed...

In this study, the application of a Ni-free Zr60.14Cu22.31Fe4.85Al9.7Ag3 thin film metallic glass (TFMG) was examined as an approach to retard the poor tribological properties of Ti-alloys for dental applications. The TFMGs were coated on biomedical Ti6Al4V substrate by single-target magnetron sputtering. The fretting resistance was assessed using...
Article
Reducing the elastic modulus of metallic bone implants can decrease the stress shielding effect between the implants and bone tissue. Ti alloys containing elements without biological side effects have shown considerable potential as alternatives of biomedical Ti–Al–V alloys in bone implant applications. Ti alloys with porous surface topography have...

The patients with end-stage of renal disease (ESRD) need to take oral phosphate binder. Traditional phosphate binders may leave the disadvantage of aluminum intoxication or cardiac calcification. Herein, Mg-Fe-Cl hydrotalcite-like nanoplatelet (HTln) is for the first time characterized as potential oral phosphate binder, with respect to its phospho...
Article
In nasal reconstruction, the response of cells to titanium (Ti) implants is mainly determined by surface features of the implant. In a pilot study, the authors applied electrochemical anodization to Ti surfaces in an alkaline solution to create a network of nanoscale surface structures. This nanonetwork was intended to enhance the responses of prim...
Article
Titanium (Ti) is widely used in orthopaedic and dental implants; however, the surface modification methods used to promote osseointegration require further development. In this study, we developed a simple, cost-effective method for the immobilization of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) on Ti surfaces using a natural cross-linker genipin. We th...

V-free Ti alloys are viewed as a promising alternative to biomedical Ti–Al–V alloys in bone implant applications. However, the biological response to these alloys depends heavily on the surface characteristics of the implant as well as on the choice of material. This study treated Ti–6Al–7Nb alloys with electrochemical anodization in an alkaline so...
