  1. 1. The biological and physical performance of high strength dicalcium phosphate cement in physiologically relevant models

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Michael Pujari-Palmer; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; biomaterial; bioceramic; osteoinduction; calcium phosphate; cement; osteoblast; pyrophosphate; Rebamipide; drug delivery; screw augmentation; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : The chemical properties of calcium phosphate cements (CPCs) are very similar to the mineral phase of bone. CPCs are, consequently, very effective substrates (scaffolds) for tissue engineering; bone and stem cells attach readily, and can proliferate and differentiate to form new bone tissue. READ MORE

  2. 2. Spark plasma sintered ZrO2-SiO2 glass ceramics and Si3N4 bioceramics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Le Fu; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ZrO2-SiO2 glass ceramic; high-strength; translucency; 3D nano-architecture; Si3N4 bioceramic; biodegradable; spark plasma sintering; Materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on elaboration and characterization of two types of bioceramics: one is ZrO2-SiO2 nanocrystalline glass ceramic (NCGC) for dental application. The goal is to develop new ZrO2-SiO2 NCGCs with a combination of high strength and high translucency; the other is biodegradable Si3N4 ceramics for spinal fusion. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ceramic Materials for Administration of Potent Drugs

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Bing Cai; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Tamper-resistance; Oral formulation; Transdermal formulation; Biomaterials; Microneedles;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed to investigate and document the potential of applying ceramics in two specific drug delivery applications: tamper-resistant opioid formulations and transdermal enhancement protrusions.Geopolymers were developed into the matrix for a tamper-resistant formulation, aiming to protect drug substances from non-medical abuse.

  4. 4. Influence of a dental ceramic and a calcium aluminate cement on dental biofilm formation and gingival inflammatory response

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Katarina Konradsson; Umeå universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : cements; ceramics; cytotoxicity; dental biofilm; gingivitis; interleukin-1; oral hygiene; resin composite;

    Abstract : Dental restorative materials interact with their surrounding oral environment. Interaction factors can be release of toxic components and/or effects on biofilm formation and gingiva. In the end of the nineties, a calcium aluminate cement (CAC) was manufactured as a “bioceramic” alternative to resin composite. READ MORE
