  3. 3. Nanowires and Neural interfaces. Biocompatibility in the brain

    University dissertation from Lund University, Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Lina Gällentoft; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neural interface; neurons; BMI; nanowires; tissue responses; rat; biocompatibility; astrocytes; microglia;

    Abstract : Chronic neural interfaces that are able to record or stimulate neurons in the CNS are valuable instruments in use today and they hold great promise for the future both within neuroscience research and in the clinic. However, a major obstacle is that they show a decline in performance over time. READ MORE

  4. 4. Mesoporous magnesium carbonate Synthesis, characterization and biocompatibility

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Sara Frykstrand Ångström; Uppsala universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; mesoporous; magnesium carbonate; pore size control; cytotoxicity; in vivo; skin irritation; acute systemic toxicity; hemocompatibility; Ca2 uptake; solubility enhancement; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials;

    Abstract : Mesoporous materials constitute a promising class of nanomaterials for a number of applications due to their tunable pore structure. The synthesis of most mesoporous materials involves a surfactant liquid crystal structure to form the pores. READ MORE

  5. 5. Evaluation of Alginate Microcapsules for Use in Transplantation of Islets of Langerhans

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Aileen King; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell biology; Alginate; biocompatibility; cytokines; epimerases; islet transplantation; microencapsulation; Cellbiologi; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi; medicinsk cellbiologi; Medical Cell Biology;

    Abstract : Transplantation of islets of Langerhans is a potential treatment of type 1 diabetes that aims to restore normal glucose homeostasis. Microencapsulation of islets could enable transplantation in the absence of immunosuppression, which would be beneficial as the side effects associated with immunosuppression outweigh the potential benefits of islet transplantation.
