  • Controlling dispersion of axonal regeneration using a multichannel collagen nerve conduit 

    Yao, Li; Pandit, Abhay (Elsevier, 2010-03-21)
    Single channel conduits are used clinically in nerve repair as an alternative to the autologous nerve graft. Axons regenerating across single channel tubes, however, may disperse resulting in inappropriate target reinnervation. ...
  • A Highly Effective Gene Delivery Vector 

    Newland, Ben; Tai, Hongyun; Zheng, Yu; Velasco, Diego; Di Luca, Andrea; Howdle, Steven M.; Alexander, Cameron; Wang, Wenxin; Pandit, Abhay (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010-06)
    A hyperbranched 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) based polymer has been synthesised by a one-pot in situ deactivation enhanced atom transfer radical polymerisation (DE-ATRP); it exhibits much higher transfection ...
  • The influence of size and charge of chitosan/polyglutamic acid hollow spheres on cellular internalization, viability and blood compatibility 

    Dash, Biraja C.; Réthoré, Gildas; Monaghan, Michael; Pandit, Abhay (Elsevier, 2010-11)
    Polymeric hollow spheres can be tailored as efficient carriers of various therapeutic molecules due to their tunable properties. However, the entry of these synthetic vehicles into cells, their cell viability and blood ...
  • Liposomal gene delivery mediated by tissue-engineered scaffolds 

    Kulkarni, Mangesh; Griser, Udo; O'Brien, Timothy; Pandit, Abhay (Elsevier, 2010-01-01)
    In the absence of any ideal gene delivery carrier despite the recent explosion of novel carrier systems, the current trend is to explore the complementary synergy promised by a combination of delivery systems such as ...
  • Non-viral gene therapy for myocardial engineering 

    Holladay, Carolyn A.; O'Brien, Timothy; Pandit, Abhay (John Wiley & Sons, Ltd., 2010-05)
    Despite significant advances in surgical and pharmacological techniques, myocardial infarction (MI) remains the main cause of morbidity in the developed world because no remedy has been found for the regeneration of infarcted ...
  • A reliable method for detecting complexed DNA in vitro 

    Holladay, C.; Keeney, M.; Mathew, B; Wang, W.; Pandit, A. (The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010-09-08)
    Quantification of eluted nucleic acids is a critical parameter in characterizing biomaterial based gene-delivery systems. The most commonly used method is to assay samples with an intercalating fluorescent dye such as ...
  • Spinal cord injury in vitro: Modelling axon growth inhibition 

    Abu-Rub, Mohammad; McMahon, Siobhan; Zeugolis, Dimitrios I.; Pandit, Abhay (Elsevier, 2010-06)
    Over the past three decades, tremendous progress has been made in elucidating mechanisms underlying regenerative failure after spinal cord injury and in devising therapeutic approaches to promote functional nerve regeneration. ...
  • Type II collagen-hyaluronan hydrogel - a step towards a scaffold for intervertebral disc tissue engineering 

    Calderon, Laura; Collin, Estelle; Murphy, Mary; O'Halloran, Damien; Pandit, Abhay (European Cells & Materials Ltd, 2010-09-06)
    Intervertebral disc regeneration strategies based on stem cell differentiation in combination with the design of functional scaffolds is an attractive approach towards repairing/regenerating the nucleus pulposus. The ...
