Many applications using drug-carrying biomedical materials require on-demand, localized delivery of multiple therapeutic agents in precisely controlled and patient-specific time sequences, especially after assembly of the delivery vehicles; however, creating such materials has proven extremely challenging. Here we report a novel strategy to create polypeptide multilayer films integrated with capsules as vehicles for co-delivery of multiple drugs using layer-by-layer self-assembly technology. Our approach allows the multilayered polypeptide nanofilms and pre-impregnated capsules to assemble into innovative biomedical materials with high and controllable loading of multiple drugs at any time post-preparation, and to achieve pH-responsive and sustained release...

OBJECTIVE: Transforming growth factor-β (TGFβ) is a major regulator of cartilage homeostasis and its deregulation has been associated with osteoarthritis (OA). Deregulation of the TGFβ pathway in mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) has been proposed to be at the onset of OA. Using a secretome analysis, we identified a member of the TGFβ family, TGFβ-induced protein (TGFβi or βIGH3), expressed in MSCs and we investigated its function and regulation during OA. DESIGN: Cartilage, bone, synovium, infrapatellar fat pad and bone marrow-MSCs were isolated from patients with OA or healthy subjects...

Cost-effective and functionalized scaffolds are in high demand for stem-cell-based regenerative medicine to treat refractory bone defects in craniofacial abnormalities and injuries. One potential strategy is to utilize pharmacological and cost-effective plant polyphenols and biocompatible proteins, such as gelatin. Nevertheless, the use of chemically modified proteins with plant polyphenols in this strategy has not been standardized. Here, we demonstrated that gelatin chemically modified with epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), the major catechin isolated from green tea, can be a useful material to induce bone regeneration in a rat congenial cleft-jaw model in vivo when used with/without adipose-derived stem cells or dedifferentiated fat cells...

Plasma sprayed hydroxyapatite (HA) coating is known to improve the osteoconductivity of metallic implants. However, the adhesive bond strength of the coating is affected due to a mismatch in coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) between the metal and the HA ceramic. In this study, a gradient HA coating was prepared on Ti6Al4V by laser engineered net shaping (LENSTM ) followed by plasma spray deposition. In addition, 1 wt.% MgO and 2 wt.% Ag2 O were mixed with HA to improve the biological and antibacterial properties of the coated implant...

Silk fibroin (SF) from Bombyx mori is a promising natural material for the synthesis of biocompatible and biodegradable hydrogels for use in biomedical applications from tissue engineering to drug delivery. However, weak gelation performance and the lack of biochemical cues to trigger cell proliferation and differentiation currently significantly limit its application in these areas. Herein, a biofunctional hydrogel containing SF (2.0%) and a small peptide gelator (e.g., NapFFRGD = 1.0 wt%) is generated via cooperative molecular self-assembly...

The role of tumour microenvironment in neoplasm initiation and malignant evolution has been increasingly recognized. However, the bone marrow mesenchymal stromal cell (BMMSC) contribution to disease progression remains poorly explored. We previously reported that the expression of serine protease inhibitor kunitz-type2 (SPINT2/HAI-2), an inhibitor of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) activation, is significantly lower in BMMSC from myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) patients compared to healthy donors (HD). Thus, to investigate whether this loss of expression was due to SPINT2/HAI-2 methylation, BMMSC from MDS and de novo acute myeloid leukaemia (de novo AML) patients were treated with 5-Azacitidine (Aza), a DNA methyltransferase inhibitor...

Neovascularization and re-endothelialization rely on endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs). However, the recruitment and angiogenic roles of EPCs are subject to regulation through the vascular microenvironment, which remains largely unknown. Platelet‑derived growth factor D (PDGF‑D) is a new member of the PDGF family that binds the PDGFR‑β homodimer. However, it remains unknown whether and how it affects the angiogenic capacity of EPCs and participates in tube‑like formation. EPCs were derived from rat bone marrow cells, and the gain‑of‑function approach was used to study the effects of PDGF‑D on the biological activities of EPCs...

Osteosarcoma is a highly malignant bone tumor. However, due to the high complexity of the occurrence and metastasis of osteosarcoma, the exact mechanism promoting its development and progression remains to be elucidated. This study highlights the causal link between solute carrier family 25 member 22 (SLC25A22) and the development, progression, and metastasis of osteosarcoma. SLC25A22 is upregulated in human osteosarcoma and predicts a poor prognosis. The upregulation of SLC25A22 in osteosarcoma tissues was significantly associated with cell proliferation, invasion, and metastasis...

Biomimetic mineralization using simulated body fluid (SBF) can form a bone-like apatite (Ap) on the natural polymers and enhance osteoconductivity, biocompatibility and reduce immunological rejection. Nevertheless, the coating efficiency of bone-like apatite layer on natural polymers is still needed to be improved. Graphene oxide (GO) is rich in functional groups, such as carbonyls (-COOH) and hydroxyls (-OH), which can provide more active sites for biomimetic mineralization and improve the proliferation of the rat bone marrow stromal cells (r-BMSCs)...
