Highly cited papers

Two papers co-authored by Prof. A. R. Boccaccini are included in the list of 50 Most-Cited Articles in the Journal of Biomaterials Applications

The papers report the development and characterisation of Ag-doped bioactive glass coated surgical sutures. The two papers cited are:

J. Pratten, et al., In Vitro Attachment of Staphylococcus Epidermidis to Surgical Sutures with and without Ag-Containing Bioactive Glass Coating, J. Biomater. Appl. 19 (2004) 47-57
J. J. Blaker, et al., Thermal Characterizations of Silver-containing Bioactive Glass-coated Sutures, J. Biomater. Appl. 20 (2005) 81-98
Another paper of our group, on PDLLA-Bioactive glass composite scaffolds, is listed as one of the most read articles of the journal: D. M. Yunos, et al., Stratified scaffolds for osteochondral tissue engineering applications: Electrospun PDLLA nanofibre coated Bioglass®-derived foams, J. Biomater. Appl. 27 (2013) 537-551.
