Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) and TNF receptor antagonists and agonists used to treat TNF-mediated inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or to treat cancer. TNF blockers are the commerc...
Tufts University biomedical engineers are using low-energy, ultrafast laser technology to make high-resolution, 3-D structures in silk protein hydrogels. The laser-based micropatterning represents a n...
A hydrogel-design strategy achieves transparent and conductive bonding of synthetic hydrogels to a variety of non-porous surfaces, with interfacial toughness values over 1,000 J m−2.
Hydrogels with faster stress relaxation enhance the spreading, proliferation, and osteogenic differentiation of embedded mesenchymal stem cells.
Type: Original PaperThe need for multiple vaccinations to enhance the immunogenicity of subunit vaccines may be reduced by delivering the vaccine over an extended period of time. Here, we report two n...
(Tufts University) Low-energy, ultrafast laser technology is able to make high-resolution, 3-D structures in transparent silk protein hydrogels to support cell growth and allow cells to penetrate deep...
The commitment and differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells encapsulated in synthetic hydrogels that mimic the stiffness of adult-stem-cell niches can be switched by changing the hydrogel’s o...
Type: Original PaperFloating pH-sensitive chitosan hydrogels containing metronidazole were developed for the eradication of Helicobacter pylori from the stomach. Hydrogels were prepared by crosslinkin...
Forget all the cool apps and tools being marketed: These items are needed before technology can truly revolutionize healthcare. Medscape Diabetes & Endocrinology
Hydrogels are widely used in the biomedical field. Their main purposes are either to deliver biological active agents or to temporarily fill a defect until they degrade and are followed by new host ti...
Hydrogels are becoming widely used in biomaterial applications. The available methods for the preparation of these materials are continually growing. The gelation time of silk protein fibroin is diffi...
Hydrogels composed of N-quaternized chitosan (NQC) (N-Trimethyl anmmonium Chitosan chloride) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) in different weight ratios (1:3), (1:1) and (3:1) chemically crosslinked by g...
The potential to harness the unique physical, chemical, and biological properties of the sundew (Drosera) plant's adhesive hydrogels has long intrigued researchers searching for novel wound healing ap...
