International research collaboration leads to novel antibacterial Ag-containing bioactive glass nanoparticles
Our paper  entitled: “Ag modified mesoporous bioactive glass nanoparticles for enhanced antibacterial activity in 3D infected skin model“, co-authors: Kai Zheng, Preethi Balasubramanian, Thomas E.Paterson, Rene Stein, Sheila MacNeil, Sonia Fiorilli, Chiara Vitale-Brovarone, Joanna Shepher and Aldo R.Boccaccini has been published in Mater. Sci. and Eng. C.The paper is the result of our collaboration with researchers from School of Clinical Dentistry, Department of Materials Science & Engineering, and The Kroto Research Institute, at University of Sheffield, UK, and Department of Applied Science and Technology, Polytechnic of Turin, Italy, in the framework of the EU (Horizon 2020) funded project MOZART (MesopOrous matrices for localiZed pH-triggered releAse of theRapeuTic ions and drugs), coordinated by Prof. Chiara Vitale Brovarone. Ag containing silica-calcia mesoporous bioactive glass nanoparticles were tested in their antibacterial effect, for the first time, in a 3D tissue-engineered infected skin model.  K.
