Objectives: To analyze how novel developed silicon dioxide composite membranes, functionalized with zinc or doxycycline, can modulate the expression of genes related to the osteogenic functional capacity of osteoblastic cells.
Methods: The composite nanofibers membranes were manufactured by using a novel polymeric blend and 20 nm silicon dioxide nanoparticles (SiO-NPs). To manufacture the membranes, 20 nm SiO-NPs were added to the polymer solution and the resulting suspension was processed by electrospinning. Read More
