J Biomed Mater Res A 80:410-20. 2007..Cytocompatibility of the composites was investigated in a FDA/EtBr viability assay using an MC3T3-E1 osteoblast-like cell line and showed good biocompatibility of the materials in vitro...
- Variations in human DEJ scallop size with tooth typeDelia S Brauer
Division of Biomaterials and Bioengineering, Department of Preventive and Restorative Dental Sciences, University of California San Francisco, Box 0758, San Francisco, CA 94143 0758, USA
J Dent 38:597-601. 2010..Recent literature suggests that the scalloped structure of the dentino-enamel junction (DEJ) is critical for DEJ stability. Aim of our study was to see if there are differences in scallop size and shape with tooth type...
- Fluoride-containing bioactive glasses: effect of glass design and structure on degradation, pH and apatite formation in simulated body fluidDelia S Brauer
Imperial College London, Department of Materials, Exhibition Road, London SW7 2AZ, UK
Acta Biomater 6:3275-82. 2010..Apatite formation could be favoured by increasing the phosphate content in the glass, as the release of additional phosphate into the SBF would affect supersaturation in the solution and possibly favour formation of apatite...

- Effect of degradation rates of resorbable phosphate invert glasses on in vitro osteoblast proliferationDelia S Brauer
Otto Schott Institut, Friedrich Schiller Universitat Jena, Fraunhoferstr 6, D 07743 Jena, Germany
J Biomed Mater Res A 77:213-9. 2006..It is suggested that resorbable implant materials require the adjustment of dissolution rate so as to facilitate cell adhesion and proliferation and thus a gradual transition from artificial implant to new bone structure...
