An Introduction to Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions by Kay C. Dee,David A. Puleo,Rena Bizios

By Kay C. Dee,David A. Puleo,Rena Bizios

An advent to Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions acquaints an undergraduate viewers with the basic organic approaches that effect those subtle, state-of-the-art strategies. Chapters one via 3 offer extra element in regards to the molecular-level occasions that occur on the tissue-implant interface, whereas chapters 4 via ten discover chosen fabric, organic, and physiological outcomes of those occasions. the significance of the body’s wound-healing reaction is emphasised all through. particular issues coated include:Structure and homes of biomaterials

  • Proteins
  • Protein-surface interactions
  • Blood-biomaterial interactions
  • Inflammation and infection
  • The immune system
  • Biomaterial responses to implantation
  • Biomaterial floor engineering
  • Intimal hyperplasia and osseointegration as examples of tissue-biomaterial interactions

The textual content additionally presents vast insurance of the 3 pertinent interfaces among the physique and the biomaterial, among the physique and the dwelling cells, and among the cells and the biomaterial which are severe within the improvement of tissue-engineered items that comprise residing cells inside a biomaterial matrix. perfect for a one-semester, biomedical engineering direction, An advent to Tissue-Biomaterial Interactions presents a superb framework for figuring out today’s and tomorrow’s implantable biomedical devices.
