      First page: 045011
      Abstract: Magnesium containing calcium silicates have recently shown that they are promising materials for various biomedical application with potential use in the form of bulk ceramic, composite scaffold or coatings on metallic substrates. A novel akermanite (AK; Ca 2 MgSi 2 O 7 )/dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD, CaHPO 4 . H 2 O) cement mixture was tested in this work in order to produce an alternative AK/DCPD biocement for orthopedic applications. For comparison, we have prepared two cements mixed with 2.5 wt% NaH 2 PO 4 solution (labeled as NaH 2 PO 4 cement) and with the solution composed of organic 2.5 wt% citric acid a 2.5 wt% trisodium citrate (citrate cement) respectively. The results demonstrated only a partial dissolution of AK, regardless of the type of liquid used. On the other hand, the DCPD was completely hydrolyzed much faster in the citrate cement. The final hydration product was an amor...

    • Authors: Ahmet Ozan Basar; Veera Sadhu Hilal Turkoglu Sasmazel
      First page: 045012
      Abstract: In the present study, sythetic biodegradable polymer poly( ε -caprolactone) (PCL) and graphene oxide (GO) were combined together to prepare 3D, composite tissue scaffolds (PCL/GO scaffolds) by using electrospinning technique. Also, the influence of Gly-Arg-Gly-Asp-Ser-Pro (GRGDSP) and/or thiophene (Th) modified GO on the composite PCL/GO mats (PCL/GO, PCL/GO-GRGDSP, PCL/GO-Th, PCL/GO-GRGDSP-Th) was further investigated. Characteristic examinations of the scaffolds were carried out by scanning electron microscope (SEM), contact angle (CA) measurements, x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, TGA, electrical conductivity tests, phosphate buffer saline absorption and shrinkage tests and mechanical tests. All of the scaffolds were exhibited suitable bead-free and uniform morphology according to SEM images. With the addition of GO, better hydrophilicity and a slight CA decrease (∼5°) for the PCL/GO scaffolds were observed. Mechanical properties were reinforced drastically with the add...

      First page: 045013
      Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as a diagnostic tool in tissue engineering, has received widespread attention because of its ability to consistently provide degradation and absorption of implants in vivo . For some specific human tissues and organs, such as nerves, muscles and myocardium, their regeneration requires tissue engineering scaffolds have a good electrical conductivity. Graphene oxide (GO) has been extensively studied as a conductive biomaterial having mechanical reinforcement. Based on the above, we propose an MRI conductive scaffold containing gelatin (Gel)/gelatin-polycaprolactone (Gel-PCL)/ultra-small paramagnetic iron oxide (USPIO)/graphene oxide (GO) (Gel/Gel-PCL/USPIO/GO). Their physical and chemical properties as well as biocompatibility are measured in vitro . The purpose of doping USPIO was developed for non-invasive monitoring of tissue engineered implants and tissue reconstruction. Functional modification of GO to match electrophysiological r...

  • Decellularized porcine coronary artery with adipose stem cells for
           vascular tissue engineering
    • Authors: Chih-Hsun Lin; Kai Hsia, Chi-Han Tsai, Hsu Ma, Jen-Her Lu Ruey-Yug Tsay
      First page: 045014
      Abstract: Background. Decellularized xenogenic vascular tissue has potential applications in small-diameter tissue engineering vascular grafts. Decellularization removes most xenogenic antigen and leaves most of the extracellular matrix for cell adhesion, migration and proliferation. Recellularization is recognized as an important step to improve the endothelialization of decellularized vascular grafts in vivo and most studies used endothelial cells for recellularization. However, there have been no studies on applying undifferentiated adipose stem cells (ASCs) in recellularization. Material and methods . In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of decellularized porcine coronary artery (DPCA) with ASC recellularization as tissue-engineered vascular grafts by in vitro cell biocompatibility and in vivo aorta repair tests. Porcine coronary artery was decellularized with the enzyme-detergent method and characterized by histology and biochemical methods. ...

           in situ skeletal muscle regeneration
    • Authors: Lindsey Shapiro; Ebrahim Elsangeedy, Hyeongjin Lee, Anthony Atala, James J Yoo, Sang Jin Lee Young Min Ju
      First page: 045015
      Abstract: Current treatment options for repairing volumetric muscle loss injury involve the use of existing host tissue like muscular flaps or grafts. However, host muscle tissue may not be available and donor site morbidity, such as functional loss and volume deficiency, is often present. In this study, we developed a biofunctionalized muscle-derived decellularized extracellular matrix scaffolding system to utilize endogenous stem/progenitor cells for in situ muscle tissue regeneration. We optimized the decellularization process to enhance cellular infiltration and fabricated an insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 3 (IGFBP-3)-conjugated scaffold for controlled delivery of IGF-I. We then tested in vitro characterization including IGF-I release kinetics and cellular infiltration. In addition, we have analyzed the bioactivities of skeletal muscle cells (C2C12) to assess the indirect effect of released IGF-1 from the scaffold. The IGFBP-3 conjugated scaffolds demonstrate...

  • Rubidium-doped titanium surfaces with modulatory effects on MC3T3-E1 cell
           response and antibacterial capacity against Staphylococcus aureus
    • Authors: Manke Chen; Shusong Wu, Yanni Tan, Runcheng Li, Yong Liu Qianli Huang
      First page: 045016
      Abstract: To simultaneously impart excellent biological activity and antibacterial function to titanium-based metal materials, rubidium-doped titanium surfaces were prepared via alkali heat treatment, subsequent hydrothermal treatment and final heat treatment. The alkali heat treatment was employed to fabricate an amorphous sodium titanate hydrogel layer on titanium substrates. Thereafter, rubidium was introduced through the hydrothermal process. After final heat treatment, crystallized rubidium titanate and sodium titanate were obtained on titanium surfaces. The viability of MC3T3-E1 cells was inhibited on rubidium-doped titanium surfaces for short-term (day 1). With prolonged duration, the viability and alkali phosphatase (ALP) activity were comparable for various surfaces with different amounts of rubidium (day 5). With further increased culture duration, the collagen synthesis (day 10) and in vitro mineralization of osteoblasts were found to be significantly enhanced on rubidiu...

  • Bioinspired calcium phosphate mineralization on Net-Shape-Nonwoven
           chitosan scaffolds stimulates human bone marrow stromal cell
    • Authors: C Heinemann; R Brünler, C Kreschel, B Kruppke, R Bernhardt, D Aibibu, C Cherif, H-P Wiesmann T Hanke
      First page: 045017
      Abstract: Chitosan fibers were processed using the Net-Shape-Nonwoven (NSN) technique in order to create porous scaffolds which were functionalized in two bioinspired ways: collagen type I coating and unique mineralization with organically modified hydroxyapatite (ormoHAP). While collagen is common to enhance cell attachment on surfaces, the electric-field assisted migration and deposition of ormoHAP on the surface of the NSN-scaffolds is a novel technique which enables sub-micrometer sized mineralization while maintaining the original pore structure. Microscopy revealed fast attachment and morphological adaptation of the cells on both, the pure and the functionalized NSN-scaffolds. Remarkably, the cell number of osteogenically induced hBMSC on ormoHAP-modified NSN-scaffolds increased 3.5–5 fold compared to pure NSN-scaffolds. Osteogenic differentiation of hBMSC/osteoblasts was highest on collagen-functionalized NSN-scaffolds. RT-PCR studies revealed gene expression of ALP, BSP II, and os...

  • Application of high resolution DLP stereolithography for fabrication of
           tricalcium phosphate scaffolds for bone regeneration
    • Authors: Christina Schmidleithner; Sara Malferarri, Robert Palgrave, Daniel Bomze, Martin Schwentenwein Deepak M Kalaskar
      First page: 045018
      Abstract: Bone regeneration requires porous and mechanically stable scaffolds to support tissue integration and angiogenesis, which is essential for bone tissue regeneration. With the advent of additive manufacturing processes, production of complex porous architectures has become feasible. However, a balance has to be sorted between the porous architecture and mechanical stability, which facilitates bone regeneration for load bearing applications. The current study evaluates the use of high resolution digital light processing (DLP) -based additive manufacturing to produce complex but mechanical stable scaffolds based on β -tricalcium phosphate ( β -TCP) for bone regeneration. Four different geometries: a rectilinear Grid, a hexagonal Kagome, a Schwarz primitive, and a hollow Schwarz architecture are designed with 400 μ m pores and 75 or 50 vol% porosity. However, after initial screening for design stability and mechanical properties, only the rectilinear Grid structure, ...

  • A culture substratum with net-like polyamide fibers promotes the
           differentiation of mouse and human pluripotent stem cells to
           insulin-producing cells
    • Authors: Taku Kaitsuka; Rie Kojima, Masaaki Kawabe, Hirofumi Noguchi, Nobuaki Shiraki, Shoen Kume Kazuhito Tomizawa
      First page: 045019
      Abstract: Insulin-producing and -secreting cells derived from mouse pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) are useful for pancreatic development research and evaluating drugs that may induce insulin secretion. Previously, we have established a differentiation protocol to derive insulin-secreting cells from mouse embryonic stem cells (ESCs) using a combination of growth factors, recombinant proteins, and a culture substratum with net-like fibers. However, it has not been tested which materials and diameters of these fibers are more effective for the differentiation. Therefore, the present study aimed to produce net-like culture substratum formed from polyamide (PA) and polyacrylonitrile (PAN) fibers. Substrata were delineated into PA100, 300, 600, PAN100, 300, and 600 groups based on fiber diameters. The differentiation efficiencies of mouse ESCs cultured on the substrata were then examined by insulin 1 (Ins1) expression. Expression was found to be highest in PA300 differentiated cells, indicating ...
