Biomaterials for Clinical Applications is organized according to the World Health Organization’s report of the top 11 causes of death worldwide, and lays out opportunities for both biomaterials scientists and physicians to tackle each of these leading contributors to mortality. The introductory chapter discusses the global burden of disease. Each of the subsequent eleven chapters focuses on a specific disease process, beginning with the leading cause of death worldwide, cardiovascular disease. The chapters start with describing diseases where clinical needs are most pressing, and then envisions how biomaterials can be designed to address these needs, instead of the more technologically centered approached favored by most books in the field. This book, then, should appeal to chemical engineers and bioengineers who are designing new biomaterials for drug delivery and vaccine delivery, as well as tissue engineering.

Translating Biomaterials for Bone Graft: Bench-top to Clinical Applications brings together the current translational research in bone tissue engineering, from design to application – from materials, drugs and biologic delivery used for bone graft applications to pre-clinical and clinical considerations. The book also discusses the regulatory approval pathways, which involves consideration of the class of devices; whether they are similar to existing solutions, minimal manipulation of donor tissue or completely novel materials, drugs and biologics. These considerations drive the ability to successfully transition the latest generations of bone graft materials into the clinics. Chapters come from materials scientists, clinicians, researchers, and consultants and provide a holistic understanding of the field. As such, the book is a state-of-the-art reference to bone therapies and should appeal to clinicians, scientists, as well as students interested in the current research and/or practices in the field of bone regeneration and restoration.

Regeneration of tissues and organs remains one of the great challenges of clinical medicine, and physicians are constantly seeking better methods for tissue repair and replacement. Tissue engineering and regenerative medicine have been investigated for virtually every organ system in the human body, and progress is made possible by advances in materials science, polymer chemistry, and molecular biology. This book reviews the current status of biomaterials for regenerative medicine, and highlights advances in both basic science and clinical practice. The latest methods for regulating the biological and chemical composition of biomaterials are described, together with techniques for modulating mechanical properties of engineered constructs. Contributors delineate methods for guiding the host response to implantable materials, and explain the use of biologically-inspired materials for optimal biological functionality and compatibility. The book culminates in a discussion of the clinical applications of regenerative medicine. By integrating engineering and clinical medicine, Engineering Biomaterials for Regenerative Medicine examines how tissue engineering and regenerative medicine can be translated into successful therapies to bridge the gap between laboratory and clinic. The book will aid materials scientists and engineers in identifying research priorities to fulfill clinical needs, and will also enable physicians to understand novel biomaterials that are emerging in the clinic. This integrated approach also gives engineering students a sense of the excitement and relevance of materials science in the development of novel therapeutic strategies.

Das Buch erörtert zuerst die besondere Natur des Glases, indem - dem Herstellungsprozeß folgend - zunächst das Verhalten von Glasschmelzen betrachtet wird, um daraus die Struktur der festen Gläser abzuleiten. Je nach chemischer Zusammensetzung ergeben sich dafür charakteristische Eigenschaften, besonders bei den nichtsilicatischen, nichtoxidischen und metallischen Gläsern. Die zweite Hälfte des Buches befaßt sich mit den Eigenschaften der Gläser, die nach Möglichkeit aus den Strukturen abgeleitet werden. Dabei wird auch auf die Meßmethoden und die Einflüsse von Zusammensetzung, Temperatur und Vorgeschichte eingegangen, wobei die neuesten Fortschritte in der Entwicklung von Gläsern mit höherer Festigkeit und besseren optischen, elektrischen und chemischen Eigenschaften behandelt werden. Neue Abschnitte sind auch der Glasoberfläche und dem Sol-Gel-Prozeß gewidmet. Das Buch ist in seiner Anlage ohne Konkurrenz im deutschen Sprachbereich. Es stellt nicht nur eine Einführung in den Werkstoff Glas für Lernende dar, sondern ist auch durch viele praktische Hinweise ein wertvolles Hilfsmittel bei der Anwendung von Glas. Sehr viele Literaturzitate ermöglichen einen schnellen Zugriff zu ausführlicheren Quellen. Die vielseitigen und oft einzigartigen Eigenschaften von Gläsern werden aus der Glasstruktur abgeleitet, die eingehend behandelt wird. Daraus ergibt sich das Verständnis für die Einflüsse von Zusammensetzung, Temperatur und Vorgeschichte. Das Buch ist nicht nur ein Lehrbuch, sondern auch ein Hilfsmittel für den praktischen Gebrauch von Glas.
