Tissue engineering is an attractive strategy for tendon/ligament-to-bone interface repair. The structure and extracellular matrix composition of the interface are complex and allow for a gradual mechanical stress transfer between tendons/ligaments and bone. Thus, scaffolds mimicking the structural features of the native interface may be able to better support functional tissue regeneration. In this study, we fabricated biphasic silk fibroin scaffolds designed to mimic the gradient in collagen molecule alignment present at the interface...

Tissue engineering, the application of stem and progenitor cells in combination with an engineered extracellular matrix, is a promising strategy for bone regeneration. However, its success is limited by the lack of vascularization after implantation. The concept of in situ tissue engineering envisages the recruitment of cells necessary for tissue regeneration from the host environment foregoing ex vivo cell seeding of the scaffold. In this study, we developed a novel scaffold system for enhanced cell attraction, which is based on biomimetic mineralized collagen scaffolds equipped with a central biopolymer depot loaded with chemotactic agents...

The development of engineered tissues has progressed over the past 20 years from in vitro characterization to in vivo implementation. For musculoskeletal tissue engineering in particular, the emphasis of many of these studies was to select conditions that maximized functional and compositional gains in vitro. However, the transition from the favorable in vitro culture environment to a less favorable in vivo environment has proven difficult, and, in many cases, engineered tissues do not retain their preimplantation phenotype after even short periods in vivo...

Surgical therapy of cardiovascular diseases frequently requires replacement of diseased tissues with prosthetic devices or grafts. Calcification is the main reason for the degeneration of implanted grafts. However, some factors reduce stenosis and attenuate calcification of implanted grafts. In this study, we used an autologous induced adipocyte cell-sheet (IACS) as a drug delivery system to determine whether its secretion ability has a beneficial effect on the remodeling process of grafts in a rat subcutaneous model...

Mounting evidence suggests that site-appropriate loading of implanted extracellular matrix (ECM) bioscaffolds and the surrounding microenvironment is an important tissue remodeling determinant, although the role at the cellular level in ECM-mediated skeletal muscle remodeling remains unknown. This study evaluates crosstalk between progenitor cells and macrophages during mechanical loading in ECM-mediated skeletal muscle repair. Myoblasts were exposed to solubilized ECM bioscaffolds and were mechanically loaded at 10% strain, 1 Hz for 5 h...

Cartilage tissue engineering is emerging as a promising treatment for osteoarthritis, and the field has progressed toward utilizing large animal models for proof of concept and preclinical studies. Mechanical testing of the regenerative tissue is an essential outcome for functional evaluation. However, testing modalities and constitutive frameworks used to evaluate in vitro grown samples differ substantially from those used to evaluate in vivo derived samples. To address this, we developed finite element (FE) models (using FEBio) of unconfined compression and indentation testing, modalities commonly used for such samples...

Decellularized tissue-engineered heart valves (DTEHVs) showed remarkable results in translational animal models, leading to recellularization within hours after implantation. This is crucial to enable tissue remodeling. To investigate if the presence of scaffold remnants before implantation is responsible for the fast recellularization of DTEHVs, an in vitro mesofluidic system was used. Human granulocyte and agranulocyte fractions were isolated, stained, brought back in suspension, and implemented in the system...

Volumetric muscle loss (VML) injuries exceed the considerable intrinsic regenerative capacity of skeletal muscle, resulting in permanent functional and cosmetic deficits. VML and VML-like injuries occur in military and civilian populations, due to trauma and surgery as well as due to a host of congenital and acquired diseases/syndromes. Current therapeutic options are limited, and new approaches are needed for a more complete functional regeneration of muscle. A potential solution is human hair-derived keratin (KN) biomaterials that may have significant potential for regenerative therapy...

Wounds to the head, neck, and extremities have been estimated to account for ∼84% of reported combat injuries to military personnel. Volumetric muscle loss (VML), defined as skeletal muscle injuries in which tissue loss results in permanent functional impairment, is common among these injuries. The present standard of care entails the use of muscle flap transfers, which suffer from the need for additional surgery when using autografts or the risk of rejection when cadaveric grafts are used. Tissue engineering (TE) strategies for skeletal muscle repair have been investigated as a means to overcome current therapeutic limitations...

At present, injuries or rupture of tendons are treated by surgical repair or conservative approaches with unpredictable clinical outcome. Alternative strategies to repair tendon defects without the undesirable side effects associated with the current options are needed. With this in mind, a tissue engineering approach has gained considerable attention as a promising strategy. Here, we investigated a synthetic 3D microenvironment able to interact with stem cells and inducing, via coupled biochemical and physical signals, their early commitment towards the tenogenic lineage...

Hyaluronic acid (HA) has been widely used for cartilage tissue engineering applications. However, the optimal time point to harvest HA-based engineered constructs for cartilage repair is still under investigation. Here, we investigated the ability of a non-destructive modality, near infrared spectroscopic (NIR) analysis, to predict compositional and mechanical properties of HA-based engineered cartilage constructs. NIR spectral data were collected from control, unseeded constructs, and twice per week via fiber optic from constructs seeded with chondrocytes during their development over an 8 week period...

Cell therapies suffer from poor survival post-transplant due to placement into hostile implant sites characterized by host immune response and innate production of high levels of reactive oxygen species (ROS). We hypothesized that cellular encapsulation within an injectable, antioxidant hydrogel would improve viability of cells exposed to high oxidative stress. To test this hypothesis, we applied a dual thermo- and ROS-responsive hydrogel comprising the ABC triblock polymer poly[(propylene sulfide)-block-(N,N-dimethyl acrylamide)-block-(N-isopropylacrylamide)] (PPS135-b-PDMA152-b-PNIPAAM225, PDN)...

We examined the respective influence of a sequential or a continuous hypoxia during expansion and TGF-ß1-driven chondrogenic differentiation of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). The differentiation was performed within alginate beads, a classical tool for the implantation of MSCs within the joint. The standard normoxic 2D (expansion) and 3D (differentiation) MSCs cultures served as reference. In order to determine the quality of the chondrogenesis, we analyzed typical markers such as type II and X collagens, SOX9, COMP, versican, and aggrecan mRNAs using PCR and we assessed the production of type II collagen and HIF-1α by histological stainings...

Adipose-derived stem cells (ADSCs) can differentiate into various cell types and thus have great potential for regenerative medicine. Herein, rat ADSCs were isolated; transduced with lentiviruses expressing Osterix (Osx), a transcriptional factor essential for osteogenesis. Osx overexpression upregulated key osteogenesis-related genes, such as special AT-rich binding protein 2, alkaline phosphatase, osteocalcin, and osteopontin, at both mRNA and protein levels. In addition, mineral nodule formation and alkaline phosphatase activity were enhanced in Osx-overexpressing ADSCs...

Meniscal injuries are the most frequently encountered soft tissue injuries in the equine stifle joint. Due to the inherent limited repair potential of meniscal tissue, meniscal injuries do not only affect the meniscus itself but also lead to impaired joint homeostasis and secondary osteoarthritis. The presented study compares 3D coculture constructs of primary equine mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) and meniscus cells (MC) seeded on three different scaffolds-a cell-laden collagen type I hydrogel (Col I gel), a tissue-derived small intestinal matrix scaffold (SIS-muc) and a combination thereof-for their qualification to be applied for meniscus tissue engineering...

Zonal organization plays an important role in cartilage structure and function, whereas most tissue-engineering strategies developed to date have only allowed the regeneration of cartilage with homogeneous biochemical and mechanical cues. To better restore tissue structure and function, there is a strong need to engineer materials with biomimetic gradient niche cues that recapitulate native tissue organization. To address this critical unmet need, here we report a method for rapid formation of tissue-scale gradient hydrogels as a 3D cell niche with tunable biochemical and physical properties...

Injectable hydrogels have gained prominence in the field of tissue engineering for minimally invasive delivery of cells for tissue repair and in the filling of irregular defects. However, many injectable hydrogels exhibit long gelation times or are not stable for long periods after injection. To address these concerns, we used thermosensitive poly(N-vinylcaprolactam) (PNVCL) hydrogels due to their cytocompatibility and fast response to temperature stimuli. Changes in the PNVCL molecular weight and concentration enabled the development of hydrogels with tunable mechanical properties and fast gelation times (<60 s when the temperature was raised from room temperature to physiologic temperature)...

High velocity impact injuries can often result in loss of large skeletal muscle mass, creating defects devoid of matrix, cells, and vasculature. Functional regeneration within these regions of large volumetric muscle loss (VML) continues to be a significant clinical challenge. Large cell-seeded, space-filling tissue engineered constructs that may augment regeneration require adequate vascularization to maintain cell viability. However, the long-term effect of improved vascularization and the effect of addition of myoblasts to vascularized constructs have not been determined in large VMLs...

Current treatment options for cartilage injuries are limited. The goals of this study are to create a biodegradable polymer scaffold with the capabilities of sustaining chondrocyte growth and proliferation, enable cell-to-cell communication and tissue regeneration through large pores, and assess the biological augmentation of the scaffold capabilities using platelet lysate (PL). We synthesized biodegradable polycaprolactone fumarate (PCLF) scaffolds to allow cell-cell communication through large interconnected pores...

Microvesicle- and exosome-mediated transport of microRNAs (miRNAs) represents a novel cellular and molecular pathway for cell-cell communication. Here we tested the hypothesis that these extracellular vesicles (EVs) and their miRNAs might change with age, contributing to age-related stem cell dysfunction. EVs were isolated from the bone marrow interstitial fluid (supernatant) of young (3-4 mo) and aged (24-28 mo) mice to determine whether the size, concentration, and miRNA profile of EVs was altered with age in vivo...
