  • 3D printing strategies for peripheral nerve regeneration
    • Authors: Eugen B Petcu; Rajiv Midha, Erin McColl, Aurel Popa-Wagner, Traian V Chirila Paul D Dalton
      First page: 032001
      Abstract: After many decades of biomaterials research for peripheral nerve regeneration, a clinical product (the nerve guide), is emerging as a proven alternative for relatively short injury gaps. This review identifies aspects where 3D printing can assist in improving long-distance nerve guide regeneration strategies. These include (1) 3D printing of the customizable nerve guides, (2) fabrication of scaffolds that fill nerve guides, (3) 3D bioprinting of cells within a matrix/bioink into the nerve guide lumen and the (4) establishment of growth factor gradients along the length a nerve guide. The improving resolution of 3D printing technologies will be an important factor for peripheral nerve regeneration, as fascicular-like guiding structures provide one path to improved nerve guidance. The capability of 3D printing to manufacture complex structures from patient data based on existing medical imaging technologies is an exciting aspect that could eventually be applied to treating periphe...

  • Research and development of 3D printed vasculature constructs
    • Authors: Xinda Li; Libiao Liu, Xinzhi Zhang Tao Xu
      First page: 032002
      Abstract: Artificial blood vessels must be strong, flexible, and must not lead to blockage after implantation. It is therefore important to select an appropriate fabrication process for products to meet these requirements. This review discusses the current methods for making artificial blood vessels, focusing on fabrication principle, materials, and applications. Among these methods, 3D printing is very promising since it has the unique capability to make complicated three-dimensional structures with multiple types of materials, and can be completely digitalized. Therefore, new developments in 3D printing of artificial blood vessels are also summarized here. This review provides a reference for the fusion of multiple processes and further improvement of artificial blood vessel fabrication.

           cell-laden constructs

      Abstract: Lithography-based three-dimensional (3D) printing technologies allow high spatial resolution that exceeds that of typical extrusion-based bioprinting approaches, allowing to better mimic the complex architecture of biological tissues. Additionally, lithographic printing via digital light processing (DLP) enables fabrication of free-form lattice and patterned structures which cannot be easily produced with other 3D printing approaches. While significant progress has been dedicated to the development of cell-laden bioinks for extrusion-based bioprinting, less attention has been directed towards the development of cyto-compatible bio-resins and their application in lithography-based biofabrication, limiting the advancement of this promising technology. In this study, we developed a new bio-resin based on methacrylated poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA-MA), gelatin-methacryloyl (Gel-MA) and a transition metal-based visible light photoinitiator. The utilization of a visible light photo-initia...

  • 3D printed Lego ® -like modular microfluidic devices based on
           capillary driving
    • Authors: Jing Nie; Qing Gao, Jing-jiang Qiu, Miao Sun, An Liu, Lei Shao, Jian-zhong Fu, Peng Zhao Yong He
      First page: 035001
      Abstract: The field of how to rapidly assemble microfluidics with modular components continuously attracts researchers’ attention, however, extra efforts must be devoted to solving the problems of leaking and aligning between individual modules. This paper presents a novel type of modular microfluidic device, driven by capillary force. There is no necessity for a strict seal or special alignment, and its open structures make it easy to integrate various stents and reactants. The key rationale for this method is to print different functional modules with a low-cost three-dimensional (3D) printer, then fill the channels with capillary materials and assemble them with plugs like Lego ® bricks. This rapidly reconstructed modular microfluidic device consists of a variety of common functional modules and other personalized modules, each module having a unified standard interface for easy assembly. As it can be printed by a desktop 3D printer, the manufacturing process is simple and ef...

  • Signal-amplifying nanoparticle/hydrogel hybrid microarray biosensor for
           metal-enhanced fluorescence detection of organophosphorus compounds
    • Authors: Minsu Kim; Ji Eon Kwon, Kangwon Lee Won-Gun Koh
      First page: 035002
      Abstract: In this study, we developed an enzyme-based miniaturized fluorescence biosensor to detect paraoxon, one of the most well-known neurotoxic organophosphorus compounds. The biosensor was fabricated with poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) hydrogel microarrays that entrapped acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and quantum dots (QDs) as fluorescence reporters. Metal-enhanced fluorescence (MEF) was utilized to amplify the fluorescence signal, which was achieved by decorating QDs on the surface of silica-coated silver nanoparticles (Ag@Silica). The MEF effects of Ag@Silica were optimized by tuning the thickness of the silica shells, and under the optimized conditions, the fluorescence intensity was shown to be increased 5 fold, compared with the system without MEF. PEG hydrogel microarray entrapping QD-decorated Ag@Silica and AChE was prepared via photopatterning process. The entrapped AChE hydrolyzed paraoxon to produce p-nitrophenol within the hydrogel microstructure, which subsequently quenched the...

  • Sprouting angiogenesis in engineered pseudo islets
    • Authors: Monika Hospodiuk; Madhuri Dey, Bugra Ayan, Donna Sosnoski, Kazim K Moncal, Yang Wu Ibrahim T Ozbolat
      First page: 035003
      Abstract: Despite the recent achievements in cell-based therapies for curing type-1 diabetes (T1D), capillarization in beta ( β )-cell clusters is still a major roadblock as it is essential for long-term viability and function of β -cells in vivo . In this research, we report sprouting angiogenesis in engineered pseudo islets (EPIs) made of mouse insulinoma β TC3 cells and rat heart microvascular endothelial cells (RHMVECs). Upon culturing in three-dimensional (3D) constructs under angiogenic conditions, EPIs sprouted extensive capillaries into the surrounding matrix. Ultra-morphological analysis through histological sections also revealed presence of capillarization within EPIs. EPIs cultured in 3D constructs maintained their viability and functionality over time while non-vascularized EPIs, without the presence of RHMVECs, could not retain their viability nor functionality. Here we demonstrate angiogenesis in engineered islets, where patient specific stem cell-der...

      First page: 035004
      Abstract: The tumor microenvironment (TME) is gaining increasing attention in oncology, as it is recognized to be functionally important during tumor development and progression. Tumors are heterogeneous tissues that, in addition to tumor cells, contain tumor-associated cell types such as immune cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. These other cells, together with the specific extracellular matrix (ECM), create a permissive environment for tumor growth. While the influence of tumor-infiltrating cells and mechanical properties of the ECM in tumor invasion and progression have been studied separately, their interaction within the complex TME and the epithelial -to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is still unclear. In this work, we develop a 3D co-culture model of lung adenocarcinoma cells and macrophages in an interpenetrating network hydrogel, to investigate the influence of the macrophage phenotype and ECM stiffness in the induction of EMT. Rising ECM stiffness increases both tumor cell...

    • Authors: Lothar Koch; Andrea Deiwick, Annika Franke, Kristin Schwanke, Axel Haverich, Robert Zweigerdt Boris Chichkov
      First page: 035005
      Abstract: Research on human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) is one of the fastest growing fields in biomedicine. Generated from patient’s own somatic cells, hiPSCs can be differentiated towards all functional cell types and returned to the patient without immunological concerns. 3D printing of hiPSCs could enable the generation of functional organs for replacement therapies or realization of organ-on-chip systems for individualized medicine. Printing of living cells was demonstrated with immortalized cell lines, primary cells, and adult stem cells with different printing technologies and biomaterials. However, hiPSCs are more sensitive to handling procedures, in particular, when dissociated into single cells. Both pluripotency and directed differentiation are influenced by numerous environmental factors including culture media, biomaterials, and cell density. Notably, existing literature on the effect of applied biomaterials on pluripotency is rather ambiguous. In this study, lase...

  • Self-assembled human osseous cell sheets as living biopapers for the
           laser-assisted bioprinting of human endothelial cells
    • Authors: F Kawecki; W P Clafshenkel, F A Auger, J-M Bourget, J Fradette R Devillard
      First page: 035006
      Abstract: A major challenge during the engineering of voluminous bone tissues is to maintain cell viability in the central regions of the construct. In vitro prevascularization of bone substitutes relying on endothelial cell bioprinting has the potential to resolve this issue and to replicate the native bone microvasculature. Laser-assisted bioprinting (LAB) commonly uses biological layers of hydrogel, called ‘biopapers’, to support patterns of printed cells and constitute the basic units of the construct. The self-assembly approach of tissue engineering allows the production of biomimetic cell-derived bone extracellular matrix including living cells. We hypothesized that self-assembled osseous sheets can serve as living biopapers to support the LAB of human endothelial cells and thus guide tubule-like structure formation. Human umbilical vein endothelial cells were bioprinted on the surface of the biopapers following a predefined pattern of lines. The osseous biopapers showed rele...

  • Photolithographic-stereolithographic-tandem fabrication of 4D smart
           scaffolds for improved stem cell cardiomyogenic differentiation
    • Authors: Shida Miao; Haitao Cui, Margaret Nowicki, Se-jun Lee, José Almeida, Xuan Zhou, Wei Zhu, Xiaoliang Yao, Fahed Masood, Michael W. Plesniak, Muhammad Mohiuddin Lijie Grace Zhang
      First page: 035007
      Abstract: 4D printing is a highly innovative additive manufacturing process for fabricating smart structures with the ability to transform over time. Significantly different from regular 4D printing techniques, this study focuses on creating novel 4D hierarchical micropatterns using a unique photolithographic-stereolithographic-tandem strategy (PSTS) with smart soybean oil epoxidized acrylate (SOEA) inks for effectively regulating human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell (hMSC) cardiomyogenic behaviors. The 4D effect refers to autonomous conversion of the surficial-patterned scaffold into a predesigned construct through an external stimulus delivered immediately after printing. Our results show that hMSCs actively grew and were highly aligned along the micropatterns, forming an uninterrupted cellular sheet. The generation of complex patterns was evident by triangular and circular outlines appearing in the scaffolds. This simple, yet efficient, technique was validated by rapid printing of s...
