BEST has demonstrated many benefits in development of several applications.
recent success stories:
BEST LOOK: Improvement of the aesthetic and health of skin and soft tissues is one of the modern trends in beauty treatments. There is a challenge to improve the functionality of hyaluronic hydrogels for longer lasting performance without causing discomfort and complications.
BEST has revealed changes in new hyaluronic hydrogels with bioactive fillers affecting viscosity and stiffness, and shown how to manage highly non-linear variations of properties impacting injectability and patient comfort.
OUTCOME: new hydrogels compositions in preparation for pre-clinical testing
BEST SMILE: Dental implants are vital for health and aesthetics. Their abutments provide the connection to mucosa for the prevention of peri-implantitis risks.
BEST has proven new treatment of ceramic dental abutments giving better aesthetics and improved mucosal adhesion, minimizing bacterial contamination risk.
OUTCOME: new abutments are in clinical trials.
BEST HEALTH: Stem cells therapy (ATMP) and cancer treatment are one of major trends in healthcare. Understanding and management of associated phenomena demand versatility in cells culturing which is not always possible in traditional 2D and new 3D models.
BEST helped discovering how new highly anisotropic scaffolds affect different cells development, proving ability to trigger changes in cells reaction to anticancer drugs.
OUTCOME: new special models for stem cell and cancer cell culturing in vitro are under development.
BEST BODY: Cartilage degradation seriously affects everyday body functionality. Its regeneration is difficult and requires specific biomaterials tailoring.
BEST allowed development of new scaffolds with biomechanical and fluidic properties polarization for substantially better hyaline regeneration.
OUTCOME: new optimized scaffolds are now being deployed in clinical practice.
