  • Publications in June 2017 - Chitosan-based coatings for dental implants

    Published on

    The development of a strong bond between implant surface and the surrounding bone substance, called osseointegration is important for successful integration of a dental implant. The coating of dental implants with chitosan is a promising approach to enable an accelerated and improved integration. In the following, we present two publications about chitosan-based coatings for dental implants.

  • Publications in May 2017 - Functional coatings with chitosan

    Published on

    Functional coatings are applied to improve resistance of implants like artificial heart valves or coronary stents against various impacts in the human body. One problem is the formation of biofilms on the implant surface, which limits communication of the implant with the surrounding area and might induce inflammatory reactions. In addition, nature of the implant material can promote the formation of blood clots, which leads to blocked arteries.

  • Chitosan as basis of self-healing coatings

    Published on

    Scientist at the Mississippi South University in Hattiesburg succeded a spectacular development - a self-reparing material when exposed to ultraviolet light. Prof. Marek Urban and Ph.D. student Biswajit Ghosh were researching on a coating, which main components are chitosan and oxetan. From their point of view this priniciple can be of greatest importance for many matrials.
