Effects of cyclic strain and growth factors on vascular smooth muscle cell responses
(Bentham Open Access, 2009)
Under physiological and pathological conditions, vascular smooth muscle cells (SMC) are exposed to different biochemical factors and biomechanical forces. Previous studies pertaining to SMC responses have not investigated ...
Biophysical assessment of single cell toxicity: diesel exhaust particle-treated human aortic endothelial cells
(PLOS (Public Library of Science), 2012)
Exposure to diesel exhaust particles (DEPs), a major source of traffic-related air pollution, has become a serious health concern due to its adverse influences on human health including cardiovascular and respiratory ...
Enhanced endothelialization on surface modified poly(l-lactic acid) substrates
(Mary Ann Liebert, 2011)
Improved biodegradable vascular grafts and stents are in demand, particularly for pediatric patients. Poly (L-lactic acid) (PLLA) is an FDA-approved biodegradable polymer of potential use for such applications. However, ...
Enhanced Endothelialization On Surface Modified Poly(L-lactic Acid)
(Biomedical Engineering, 2010-07-19)
Current synthetic vascular grafts and polymer-coated drug-eluting stents (DES) have certain limitations, such as thrombosis and restenosis due to the incomplete recovery of vascular endothelial cells on their luminal sides. ...
