  • Different bone regeneration patterns in periimplant circumferential gap defects grafted with two types of osteoconductive biomaterial

    Different bone regeneration patterns in periimplant circumferential gap defects grafted with two types of osteoconductive biomaterial

    Representative histologic photomicrographs showing upper areas adjacent to microthreads of dental implants within the defect. Despite appositional bone growth, connective tissues were formed around dental implant with minimal bony contact in upper area of control sites (left) at both 4 and 8 weeks. However, newly formed vessels were enormously found in this area, as well as dense connective tissue. In sites that received DBBM (middle), newly formed bone could be found on the surface of biomaterials and appeared to extend to the implant surface by creeping onto the surfaces of biomaterials. In sites that received PTG (right), appositional bone growth increased compared to control sites, but with limited direct bony-contact formation. Scale bar = 500 μm.

  • A sacrificial process for fabrication of biodegradable polymer membranes with submicron thickness

    A sacrificial process for fabrication of biodegradable polymer membranes with submicron thickness

    Composite images of HDMEC on gelatin coated PCL grids (A, C) or glass slides (B, D) after 13 days in culture, stained for VE-cadherin (red) and nuclei (Hoechst, blue). Composite images in C and D include the substrate background taken as phase contrast image where the features of the porous membrane under the cells are clearly visible. The scale bar in all images is 100 µm.

    The distribution of occludin in the superficial epithelial cell layers for each group. A: The sandwich co-culture group; (B) the layered co-culture group; (C) the agitation seeding group; (D) the centrifugal seeding group. All scale bars indicate 100 μm.

  • Implant design and its effects on osseointegration over time within cortical and trabecular bone

    Implant design and its effects on osseointegration over time within cortical and trabecular bone

    Representative micrographic images of the six implant configuration types. (a, b) # 1; (c, d) # 2; (e, f) # 3; (g, h) # 4; (i, j) # 5; (k, l) # 6. The images in the left and right columns are from 3 and 5 weeks post-implantation, respectively. Note that the images are from ROI # 1.

  • Oleic acid surfactant in polycaprolactone/hydroxyapatite-composites for bone tissue engineering

    Oleic acid surfactant in polycaprolactone/hydroxyapatite‐composites for bone tissue engineering

    Confocal images of the films surfaces: Samples PCL, PCL/OA, and PCL/OA/HAp with 1, 3, and 7 days of culture. Scale bar: 25 µm.

  • Bottom-up topography assembly into 3D porous scaffold to mediate cell activities

    Bottom‐up topography assembly into 3D porous scaffold to mediate cell activities

    Morphologies of mMSCs on lt-Scaffold-1 (a), lt-Scaffold-2 (b), and lt-Scaffold-3 (c) after 1 day. (d) The integrin gene expressions (αv and β1) of mMSCs after 14 days; the star indicated significant difference when p < 0.05 (n = 3). The expression results of αv and β1 were normalized to lt-Scaffold-1 and lt-Scaffold-3, respectively.
