The objective of this thesis is to design nanoparticle (NP)-based drug delivery systems suitable for treatment of bone diseases. Two types of nanocarriers, (1) polymer coated bovine serum albumin (BSA) NPs and (2) lipid based NPs (micelles and liposomes) were investigated. The BSA NPs were...
Effects of macrophages and noggin suppression on the BMP-2-induced osteogenesis of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cellsDownload
The osteogenic effects of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) on human mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are less profound than expected as compared with rodent cells, and supraphysiological dose of BMP-2 is required to achieve desired clinical outcome. The mechanism for this phenomenon is unclear....
