  1. 1. Antibacterial Strategies for Titanium Biomaterials

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erik Unosson; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Josefin Illergård; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Uppsala University

    Author : Oscar Janson; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : 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. Pilicides and Curlicides Design, synthesis, and evaluation of novel antibacterial agents targeting bacterial virulence

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet, Kemiska Institutionen

    Author : Erik Chorell; Umeå universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pilicide; curlicide; anti-virulence; chaperone usher pathway; antibacterial; pili; curli; Escherichia coli; biofilm inhibitor; 2-pyridone; peptidomimetic; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Bioorganic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Bioorganisk kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Pharmaceutical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Läkemedelskemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Organic synthesis; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Organisk syntes; MEDICINE Microbiology; immunology; infectious diseases Infectious diseases; MEDICIN Mikrobiologi; immunologi; infektionssjukdomar Infektionssjukdomar; Biorganic Chemistry; bioorganisk kemi; Infectious Diseases; infektionssjukdomar; läkemedelskemi; läkemedelskemi; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : New strategies are needed to counter the growing problem of bacterial resistance to antibiotics. One such strategy is to design compounds that target bacterial virulence, which could work separately or in concert with conventional bacteriostatic or bactericidal antibiotics. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bioactive Surgical Implant Coatings with Optional Antibacterial Function

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mirjam Lilja; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hydroxyapatite; titanium dioxide; photocatalysis; antibacterial effect; antibiotic release; biomimetic coating; co-precipitation; tobramycin;

    Abstract : Device associated infections are a growing problem in the field of orthopaedics and dentistry. Bacteria adhering to implant surfaces and subsequent biofilm formation are challenging to treat with systemic administered antibiotics. READ MORE
