Article
Bone limited capacity to fully repair large defects requires the development of new implants. In this context, new approaches have been used to promote bone regeneration and also to avoid the side effects associated with the therapeutics currently used in the clinic. Herein, 3D tricalcium phosphate/alginic acid scaffolds were produced and then coat...
Article
Nowadays, the incidence of bone disorders has steeply ascended and it is expected to double in the next decade, especially due to the ageing of the worldwide population. Bone defects and fractures lead to reduced patient’s quality of life. Autografts, allografts and xenografts have been used to overcome different types of bone injuries, although li...
Article
Full-text available
The incidence of bone disorders, whether due to trauma or pathology, has been trending upward with the aging of the worldwide population. The currently available treatments for bone injuries are rather limited, involving mainly bone grafts and implants. A particularly promising approach for bone regeneration uses rapid prototyping (RP) technologies...
Article
The demanding ever-increasing quantities of highly purified biomolecules by bio-industries, has triggered the development of new, more efficient, purification techniques. The application of membrane-based technologies has become very attractive in this field, for their high throughput capability, simplicity of operation and scale-up. Herein we repo...
Article
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality among industrialized countries. Vascular grafts are often required for the surgical treatments. Considering the limitations associated with the use of autografts and with the currently available synthetic materials, a growing demand in tissue engineered vascular grafts has been...

In article number 2009619, Tiago R. Correia, João F. Mano, and co‐workers develop a new type of hybrid cells. Individual human adipose‐derived mesenchymal stem cells are partially coated with a hard silica layer and display enhanced single‐cell survival and functionality in suspension conditions. Moreover, the ability of functionalizing silica back...
Article
Full-text available
The development of complex and large 3D vascularized tissue constructs remains the major goal of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine (TERM). To date, several strategies have been proposed to build functional and perfusable vascular networks in 3D tissue-engineered constructs to ensure the long-term cell survival and the functionality of th...
Article
Leveraging 4D biofabrication for engineering biomimetic living constructs is rapidly emerging as a valuable strategy for recapitulating native tissue dynamics, via on‐demand stimuli, or in a naturally evolving mode. Carefully selecting smart materials with suitable responsiveness and cell‐supporting functionalities is crucial to take full operation...
Article
Full-text available
The manipulation of cell surfaces in anchorage‐dependent cells can help overcome difficulties presented during cell handling and application. Silica‐based protective mechanisms existing in free‐floating microorganisms may be used as inspiration for sustaining human cell survival in suspension. Gathering on this, herein human adipose‐derived mesench...
Article
Embedded bio-printing has fostered significant advances toward the fabrication of soft complex tissue-like constructs, by providing a physical support that allows the freeform shape maintenance within the prescribed spatial arrangement, even under gravity force. Current supporting materials still present major drawbacks for up-scaling embedded 3D b...
Article
A high demand for materials with defined geometry and size is required in a wide range of fields. Inorganic compounds, especially silica‐based, arise as a cheap source and chemically flexible for the purpose. Silica display unique properties, like easy functionalization and good optical features making an interesting material to manipulate. In this...
Article
Polycaprolactone (PCL) and PCL-based materials are widely applied in the biomedical field. However, their slow biodegradation profile makes them more suitable to be used in hard tissues, where healing requires longer periods of time. In order to adjust their properties to suit for soft tissues applications, PCL can be blended with other biodegradab...
Article
UV curable adhesives offer major advantages in comparison to other polymeric based adhesive systems, such as fast-curing rate and control of the polymerization heat evolution, being ideal for application on damaged tissues. Herein, functionalized polymers were prepared by modifying polycaprolactone diol (PCL) with an isocyanate-functional unsatura...
Article
Bioinspired and adhesive multilayer membranes are produced using the layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of chitosan (CHT), alginate (ALG) and hyaluronic acid modified with dopamine (HA-DN). Freestanding multilayer membranes without DN are also produced as a control. The success of the synthesis of HA-DN was confirmed using UV-visible spectroscopy. Scann...
Article
Endophthalmitis, an inflammation of the eye due to perioperative infection, may occur after cataract surgery. Intraocular lenses (IOLs) loaded with an antibiotic have been proposed as an alternative to the conventional postoperative endophthalmitis prophylaxis, since the antibiotic is delivered directly to the target site. In this work, an IOL-base...
Article
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) present an alternative for extended, local drug delivery in the prevention of post-operative acute endophthalmitis. In the present work, we modified the surface of a hydrophilic acrylic material, used for manufacturing of IOLs, through plasma-assisted grafting copolymerization of 2-acrylamido-2-methylpropane sulfonic acid...
Article
L-lactic acid was the starting material for obtaining bioahesives. Reaction with 1,4-butanediol provided a telechelic lactic acid prepolymer with hydroxyl end groups further functionalized with 2-isocyanatoethyl methacrylate. Films were produced upon UV irradiation, 2 minutes, after addition of Irgacure® 2959. This was a solvent and catalyst free p...
Article
Novel photocurable and low molecular weight oligomers based on l-lactic acid with proven interest to be used as bioadhesive were successfully manufactured. Preparation of lactic acid oligomers with methacrylic end functionalizations was carried out in the absence of catalyst or solvents by self-esterification in two reaction steps: telechelic lacti...
Article
The synthesis, functionalization and characterization of low molecular weight L-lactic acid based oligomers to be used as new UV-curable bioadhesives are presented herein. Prepolymers hydroxyl terminated were produced by L-lactic acid dehydration with 1,4-butanediol. The prepolymer was further modified with photoreactive sites by adding an isocyana...

Recently, bone tissue engineering emerged as a viable therapeutic alternative, comprising bone implants and new personalized scaffolds to be used in bone replacement and regeneration. In this study, biocompatible scaffolds were produced by freeze-drying, using different formulations (chitosan, chitosan/gelatin, chitosan/β-TCP and chitosan/gelatin/β...

The voice is produced by the vibration of vocal cords which are located in the larynx. Therefore, one of the major consequences for patients subjected to laryngectomy is losing their voice. In these cases, a synthetic one-way valve set (voice prosthesis) can be implanted in order to allow restoration of speech. Most voice prostheses are produced wi...
Article
Novel biodegradable and low cytotoxic poly(ester amide)s (PEAs) based on α-amino acids and (L)-lactic acid (L-LA) oligomers were successfully synthesized by interfacial polymerization. The chemical structure of the new polymers was confirmed by spectroscopic analyses. Further characterization suggests that the α-amino acid plays a critical role on...
Conference Paper
The possible use of membrane filtration in the recovery process of plasmid DNA (pDNA) from fermentation broths, for applications in gene therapy and DNA vaccine applications, has been studied in recent years.
