  1. 1. Ion-Crosslinked Nanocellulose Hydrogels for Advanced Wound Care Applications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Alex Basu; Natalia Ferraz; Pentti Tengvall; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; nanofibrillated cellulose; wood nanocellulose; ion crosslinking; hydrogel; wound healing; biocompatibility; blood interactions; bacterial interactions; protein carrier; nanotherapeutic; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material;

    Abstract : A current trend in the field of wound care is the development of wound healing materials that are designed to address specific types of wounds or underlying pathologies to achieve improved healing. At the same time, there is a societal drive to replace synthetic materials with renewable alternatives. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon Nitride Characterization and Protein Interactions

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Torun Berlind; Hans Arwin; Pentti Tengvall; Hans Hultman; Thomas E. Tiwald; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns synthesis and characterization of carbon-based materials and theinvestigation of the possible use, of a selection of these materials, in biomedicalapplications. Protein adsorption and blood plasma tests were used for this purposeutilizing a surface sensitive technique called spectroscopic ellipsometry. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polyester scaffold: Material design and cell-protein-material interaction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Staffan Dånmark; Anna Finne-Wistrand; Ann-Christine Albertsson; Kamal Mustafa; Pentti Tengvall; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Tissue engineering has emerged as a valid approach for the regeneration and restoration of bone defects. The concept of bone tissue engineering includes degradable scaffolds, osteogenic cells and osteoinductive growth factors either alone or in any combination of these three. READ MORE

  4. 4. Imaging methods for haemostasis research

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Lars Faxälv; Tomas Lindahl; Pentti Tengvall; Rolf Larsson; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Blood is a vital part of the human physiology; a transport system that brings nutrients and oxygen to sustain living cells and simultaneously facilitates the removal of carbon dioxide and other waste products from the body. To assure the continuity of these functions, it is of uttermost importance to keep the flowing blood inside the vascular system at any cost. READ MORE
