Bacteriostatic Behavior of PLA-BaTiO Composite Fibers Synthesized by Centrifugal Spinning and Subjected to Aging Test.

Molecules 2021 May 14;26(10). Epub 2021 May 14.

Ceramic Physics Laboratory, Kyoto Institute of Technology, Sakyo-ku, Matsugasaki, Kyoto 606-8585, Japan.

The present work investigated the effect of Polylactic acid (PLA) fibers produced by centrifugal spinning with incorporated BaTiO particles to improve their bacteriostatic behavior. The PLA matrix and three composites, presenting three different amounts of fillers, were subjected to UV/O treatment monitoring the possible modifications that occurred over time. The morphological and physical properties of the surfaces were characterized by different microscopic techniques, contact angle, and surface potential measurements. Read More

Department of Plastic Surgery, Sandwell General Hospital, Lyndon, West Bromwich, West Midlands, B71 4HJ, UK.

Hyaluronidase is a family of enzymes that degrade hyaluronic acid (HA). It is found to increase vascular permeability and temporarily disrupt the extracellular matrix, promoting diffusion of substances through tissues. Alongside its applications in ophthalmology, obstetrics and gynaecology, musculoskeletal medicine, radiology and drug and fluid administration, hyaluronidase has a number of roles in the field of plastic surgery.

Facial Rejuvenation With Fat Grafting and Fillers.

Aesthet Surg J 2021 05;41(Suppl 1):S31-S38

Division of Dermatology, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA.

Facial rejuvenation requires a multi-modality approach to address the sun damage, volume loss, and thinning of skin that occurs with aging. With age, the collagen fibrils that provide strength become fragmented and fibroblasts connections become weak, leading to skin laxity and loss of youthful skin. Fillers can lead to a more youthful appearance by providing volumetric support. Read More

Visible-light-induced hyaluronate hydrogel for soft tissue fillers.

Int J Biol Macromol 2020 Dec 24;165(Pt B):2834-2844. Epub 2020 Oct 24.

Department of Organic Materials Engineering, Chungnam National University, Daejeon 34134, South Korea. Electronic address:

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is widely used as a filler owing to its excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability. However, commercial HA-based filler products have some limitations and can cause side effects due to the presence of residual chemical crosslinking agents. In this study, tyramine (Tyr) was introduced into HA to impart photocrosslinking ability to HA, and a photocrosslinked hydrogel was formed using a less toxic vitamin B2 derivative as a photoinitiator.
