Surface Engineering Of Polymeric Biomaterials from the Author: Todorka G Vladkova. Biomaterials work in contact with living matter and this gives a number of specific requirements for their surface properties, such as bioinertness or bioactivity, antibiofouling, and so on. Surface engineering based on physical, chemical, physical-chemical, biochemical or biological principles is important for the preparation of biomaterials with the desired biocontact properties. This book helps the reader gain the knowledge to enable them to work in such a rapidly developing area, with a comprehensive list of references given for each chapter. Strategies for tailoring the biological response through the creation of biomaterial surfaces resistant to fouling are discussed. Methods of eliciting specific biomolecular interactions that can be further combined with patterning techniques to engineer adhesive areas in a noninteractive background are also covered. The theoretical basis of surface engineering for improvement of biocontact properties of polymeric biomaterials as well as the current state-of-the-art of the surface engineering of polymeric biomaterials are presented. The book also includes information on the most used conventional and advanced surface engineering methods. The book is targeted at researchers, post-doctorates, graduate students, and those already working in the field of biomaterials with a special interest in the creation of polymeric materials with improved biocontact properties via surface engineering.

Polymeric Biomaterials from the Author: Severian Dumitriu. Biomaterials have had a major impact on the practice of contemporary medicine and patient care. Growing into a major interdisciplinary effort involving chemists, biologists, engineers, and physicians, biomaterials development has enabled the creation of high-quality devices, implants, and drug carriers with greater biocompatibility and biofunctionality. The fast-paced research and increasing interest in finding new and improved biocompatible or biodegradable polymers has provided a wealth of new information, transforming this edition of Polymeric Biomaterials into a two-volume set. This volume, Polymeric Biomaterials: Structure and Function, contains 25 authoritative chapters written by experts from around the world. Contributors cover the following topics: The structure and properties of synthetic polymers including polyesters, polyphosphazenes, and elastomers The structure and properties of natural polymers such as mucoadhesives, chitin, lignin, and carbohydrate derivatives Blends and composites—for example, metal–polymer composites and biodegradable polymeric/ceramic composites Bioresorbable hybrid membranes, drug delivery systems, cell bioassay systems, electrospinning for regenerative medicine, and more Completely revised and expanded, this state-of-the-art reference presents recent developments in polymeric biomaterials: from their chemical, physical, and structural properties to polymer synthesis and processing techniques and current applications in the medical and pharmaceutical fields.

Mouthguards from the Author: Tomotaka Takeda. It has been reported that, during a single athletic season, there is a one in ten chance of suffering a facial or dental injury, and the lifetime risk of such an injury is estimated to be 45%. It is also estimated that an athlete is sixty times more likely to sustain a dental injury while not wearing a mouthguard. Thus, there is an expectation that mouthguards can help prevent these types of injuries. The positive effects of wearing a mouthguard are indicated in various epidemiological surveys and experiments. Most of these studies revealed that mouthguards have, to some degree, an injury-preventing effect. This book indicates that there is a necessity for improving the impact absorption ability of mouthguards by considering how to achieve a full-balanced occlusion, improving design and developing new materials.

Pathogen Detection Methods from the Author: Eva Baldrich. Timely pathogen detection is an important issue for the efficient prevention of outbreaks in the populations world-wide. The development of the sensor biotechnology in the last decades has set the basis for improved, faster and simplified detection of multiple analytes in complex matrices and a number of electrochemical, piezoelectric, and optical biosensors that have been applied with different success to the detection of either whole bacteria or bacterial components. The main advantages of this new technologic approach rely on the rapid response, cost-effectiveness, easiness of manipulation and the possibility of performing on-site and real-time analysis of the samples provided by biosensors. This book reviews the biosensor technology with a focus on its potential application to pathogen detection in the human food chain.
