  1. 1. Antibacterial Strategies for Titanium Biomaterials

    Author : Erik Unosson; Ken Welch; Håkan Engqvist; Timo Närhi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Titanium; silver; biomaterial; antibacterial; photocatalysis; hydrogen peroxide; reactive oxygen species; combinatorial materials science; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Titanium and titanium based alloys are widely used in dentistry and orthopedics to replace hard tissue and to mend broken bones. It has become a material of choice due to its low density, high strength, good biocompatibility and its capacity to integrate closely with the bone. READ MORE

  2. 2. The creation of antibacterial fibres through physical adsorption of polyelectrolytes

    Author : Josefin Illergård; Monica Ek; Lars Wågberg; Malmsten Martin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; antibacterial; polyelectrolyte multilayers; polyvinylamine; contact-active antibacterial surfaces;

    Abstract : Contact-active antibacterial surfaces with irreversibly attached antibacterial com-pounds are a sustainable alternative to traditional biocides. No chemicals are released into nature and the antibacterial mechanism reduces the risk of the evolution of re-sistant bacteria. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bioactive Coatings and Antibacterial Approaches for Titanium Medical Implants

    Author : Oscar Janson; Ken Welch; Pentti Tengvall; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioactivity; antibacterial; titanium; hydrogen peroxide; hydroxyapatite; biomaterial; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to characterize and manufacture coatings and surfaces with antibacterial properties and retained or enhanced bioactivity and biocompatibility. The aim was also to study the optimal composition and parameters of mixtures for debridement of bacterial biofilms on titanium surfaces. READ MORE

  4. 4. Antibacterial Surfaces for Biomedical Applications

    Author : Saba Atefyekta; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Elastin-like polypeptides; antimicrobial peptides; antibiotic delivery; Antibacterial surfaces; mesoporous titania; contact killing surfaces; Infection;

    Abstract : Medical devices such as orthopedic implants are intended to serve for improved quality of life. However, clinical success cannot be taken for granted and the most common reason for failure is due to biomaterials associated infection (BAI). READ MORE

  5. 5. Pilicides and Curlicides : Design, synthesis, and evaluation of novel antibacterial agents targeting bacterial virulence
