Lili Wang, Stephen Perfetto, Robert Hoffman, John T. Elliott, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Steven Bauer, Heba Degheidy, Judith Arcidiacono, Litwin Virginia
Two workshops were held to identify measurement challenges and potential solutions for building measurement assurance for flow cytometry. This report summarizes key findings, including the need for high quality reagents, reference standards or materials

Experimental and statistical methods to evaluate antibacterial activity of a quaternary pyridinium salt on planktonic, biofilm-forming, and biofilm states

March 3, 2017
Daneli Lopez-Perez, Paula J. Baker, Adam L. Pintar, Jirun Sun, Nancy Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Robust evaluation and comparison of antimicrobial technologies are critical to improving biofilm prevention and treatment. Herein, a multi-pronged experimental framework and statistical models were applied to determine the effects of quaternary pyridinium

Strategies for Achieving Measurement Assurance for Cell Therapy Products

June 1, 2016
Carl G. Simon Jr., Anne L. Plant, Sumona Sarkar, John T. Elliott, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Cell therapy products (CTPs) need quantitative, validated, and robust assays to support informed decision making during their development, manufacturing, and regulation. These products, the materials involved in their production and the methods for

Combinatorial Cassette for Screening of Osteogenesis by Transplanted Human Bone Marrow Stromal Cells

April 19, 2014
Subhadip Bodhak, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Carl G. Simon Jr., Luis Fernandez de Castro Diaz, Pamela G. Robey, Sergei A. Kuznetsov, Tina Kilts, Marian F. Young
The use of in vivo transplantation assays under defined experimental conditions has become a valuable standard for evaluating osteogenic potential of different stem cell populations and is the subject of ongoing pre-clinical reconstructive therapy research

Effects of nanoparticle size and charge on interactions with self-assembled collagen

March 1, 2014
Dongbo Wang, Jing (. Ye, Steven Hudson, Keana Scott, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Recent insights into bone formation have suggested that the critical first step to the biomineralization process is the integration of small (nanometer dimension) mineral clusters into collagen fibers. Such behavior is of intrinsic interest for the areas

Airbrushed Nanofiber Scaffolds Support Bone Marrow Stromal Cell Differentiation

November 1, 2013
Carl G. Simon Jr., Wojtek J. Tutak, Sumona Sarkar, Tanya M. Farooque, Jyotsnendu J. Giri, Dongbo Wang, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Joachim Kohn, Durgadas Bolikal
Nanofiber scaffolds are effective for tissue engineering since they emulate the fibrous nanostructure of native extracellular matrix (ECM). Although electrospinning has been the most common approach for fabricating nanofiber scaffolds, airbrushing

Effects of dual antibacterial agents MDPB and nano-silver in primer on microcosm biofilm, cytotoxicity and dentin bond properties

February 1, 2013
Ke Zhang, Lei Cheng, Satoshi Imazato, Joseph M. Antonucci, Nancy Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Yuxing Bai, Hockin H. Xu
Objectives: Secondary caries at restoration margins is the main reason for restoration failure. Antibacterial bonding agents are promising to inhibit biofilm acids at the tooth-restoration interfaces. The objective of this study was to investigate the

Effect of Polymer Degree of Conversion on Streptococcus mutans Biofilms

October 5, 2012
Alison M. Kraigsley, Kathy Tang, John A. Howarter, Katrice Lippa, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Nancy Lin
The effects of key material properties of polymeric composite restorations on cariogenic oral biofilms are needed to provide insight into the materials' role in recurrent caries. The objective of this study was to quantify the effects of degree of

Antibacterial nanocomposites containing amorphous calcium phosphate and silver nanoparticles with different filler levels

May 7, 2012
Lei Cheng, Michael D. Weir, Hockin H. Xu, Joseph M. Antonucci, Nancy Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson, Sarah M. Xu, Xuedong Zhou
A dental composite containing amorphous calcium phosphate nanoparticles (NACP) was developed that released high levels of calcium (Ca) and phosphate (PO4) ions and possessed acid neutralization capability. There has been little study on incorporation of
