    Comparison of surface modification chemistries in mouse, porcine, and human islets

    Flattened representations from confocal 3D images of human islets modified by the ACYL (A), OX (B), and RED (C) techniques on day 2. [Color figure can be viewed in the online issue, which is available at wileyonlinelibrary.com.]

  • Delivery of alginate-chitosan hydrogel promotes endogenous repair and preserves cardiac function in rats with myocardial infarction

    Delivery of alginate‐chitosan hydrogel promotes endogenous repair and preserves cardiac function in rats with myocardial infarction

    Representative photomicrographs of Hematoxylin and eosin staining in the infarct area at 4 and 8 weeks after control or hydrogel injection. A–C: 4 weeks. D–F: 8 weeks. A and D: alginate only; (B and E) chitosan only; (C and F) alginate-chitosan. Arrows show the biomaterials (n = 6 per group).

  • Multiwalled carbon nanotube-modified poly(d,l-lactide-co-glycolide) scaffolds for dendritic cell load

    Multiwalled carbon nanotube‐modified poly(d,l‐lactide‐co‐glycolide) scaffolds for dendritic cell load

    SEM images of the internal structure of the scaffolds: (a) pure PLGA scaffold (×20,000); (b) F-MWCNT + P 10% (×20,000); (c and d) F-MWCNT + P 10% at higher magnifications (×20,000, ×40,000); and (e and f) MWCNT+P 10% at different magnifications (×5000, ×20,000), arrows pointed to carbon nanotubes.

    A novel pH‐responsive interpolyelectrolyte hydrogel complex for the oral delivery of levodopa. Part II: Characterization and formulation of an IPEC‐based tablet matrix

    Digital microscopic images (×32 magnification) of blends of Eudragit E100 and NaCMC: (a) E100 and NaCMC at ratio 1 : 1; (b) E100 and NaCMC at ratio 1 : 0.5; (c) Viscous E100 and NaCMC at ratio 0.5 : 1; and (d) Lightly dispersed E100 and NaCMC at ratio 0.5 : 1 showing the shredded nature of the complex after synthesis.

  • Increasing the repeating units of ethylene glycol-based dimethacrylates directed toward reduced oxidative stress and co-stimulatory factors expression in human monocytic cells

    Increasing the repeating units of ethylene glycol‐based dimethacrylates directed toward reduced oxidative stress and co‐stimulatory factors expression in human monocytic cells

    Relative viability of THP-1 cells treated with TEGMA and PEG-DMAs at various concentrations for 24 h. The symbols represent TEGDMA (closed squares), PEG9-DMA (closed circles), PEG13-DMA (closed triangles), and PEG22-DMA (open diamonds). The data are expressed as the means ± S.D. of triplicate experiments.

  • TiO2-coated CoCrMo: Improving the osteogenic differentiation and adhesion of mesenchymal stem cells in vitro

    TiO2‐coated CoCrMo: Improving the osteogenic differentiation and adhesion of mesenchymal stem cells in vitro

    Confocal images showing f-actin (green) counterstained with PI (red). Images (A)–(C) show MSCs cultured in OM on CoCrMo, with cell aggregates at day 1 (A), single cells at day 1 (B), and single cells at day 7 (C). Images (D)–(F) show MSCs on the CCMT surface, with aggregates at day 1 (D), single cells at day 1 (E), and single cells at day 7 (F). Cell morphology at day 1 is noticeably different in both aggregates and on the single cell level. Aggregates on CoCrMo appear to have ordered, elongated, parallel stress fibres, in comparison to the more robust criss-cross fibres found on the CCMT surface. Scale bar = 50 µm.
