The combination of kappa-carrageenan (κ-CG) and hydroxyapatite (HA) to generate a bone substitute material has been underexplored to date. Carrageenans (CGs) have remarkable characteristics such as biocompatibility, hydrophilicity, and structural similarities with natural glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), and they have demonstrated the ability to stimulate cellular adhesion and proliferation. Hydroxyapatite nanoparticles have been one of the most investigated materials for bone regeneration due to their excellent biocompatibility, bioactivity and osteoconductivity...

Cell adhesion was the first step of bone reconstruction. While hydroxyapatite (HA)/graphene composites had been utilized for improving the cell adhesion and bone osteogenesis, the impact of cell adhesion and HA/graphene composites, especially HA/hydrophilic graphene (HG) composites, on internal interaction force and external surface properties remained poorly understood. Here, higher stability HA/HG composites were synthesized without extra ion introduction with in situ self-assembling method. And with XRD, FT-IR, XPS and Raman analyses, the evidences of the formation of HA and the introduction of HG was clear...

In the U.S., 30% of adults suffer joint pain, most commonly in the knee, which severely limits mobility and is often attributed to injury of cartilage and underlying bone in the joint. Current treatment methods such as microfracture result in less resilient fibrocartilage with eventual failure; autografting can cause donor site morbidity and poor integration. To overcome drawbacks in treatment, tissue engineers can design cell-instructive biomimetic scaffolds using biocompatible materials as alternate therapies for osteochondral defects...

Bioactive coatings are usually applied to bone and dental prostheses to enhance the integration and their stability in the bone. Recently, silicon (Si) oxynitride ceramics have been demonstrated to possess osteoconductive properties due to the release of Si ions, particularly important in the early stage of bone formation. In addition, the pattern of the bone contacting surface has been reported to affect cells' differentiation and metabolic activity. In this work, we propose the Breath Figure (BF) process combined with a pyrolysis step, starting from a photo-crosslinkable alkoxy silicone precursor, as a method to realize bioactive patterned coating on metal bone and dental prostheses...

Biomineralization of soft scaffolds is a new venture in bone tissue engineering. This work aimed to develop a new injectable and in-situ gelling soft scaffold with chitosan and apatites through a rapid purine-crosslinking reaction. The scaffolds were fabricated by mixing chitosan, adenosine diphosphate and biominerals in an 'all-in-one-step' procedure. The gelling of chitosan via the crosslinker occurs in <4 s as measured by impedance spectroscopy. These soft gels could retain up to 4 times their weight in water...

Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are fibroblastoid multipotent adult stem cells with capacities of differentiation into osteoblasts and chondrocytes and show great potential in new bone formation and bone repair-related clinical settings, such as osteoporosis. Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) have been demonstrated to play important roles in various biological processes. Here, we report an antisense lncRNA SEMA3B-AS1 regulating hMSCs osteogenesis. SEMA3B-AS1 is proximal to a member of the semaphorin family Sema3b...

External bone fixation devices provide support and rehabilitation for severely damaged/broken bones, however, this invasive procedure is prone to infection. Zirconium nitride/silver (Ti-ZrN/Ag) coatings were characterised for surface topography, chemical composition, physicochemistry and antimicrobial efficacy (against Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis), in the presence of a blood conditioning film. The conditioning film altered the width of the microtopography of the surfaces however, the depth of the features remained relatively constant...

Repairing large tumor-related bone defects remains a difficult clinical problem because of the significant risk of locoregional relapse after surgical curettage. In this study, a composite scaffold of nano-hydroxyapatite (nHA) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets was fabricated by self-assembly, and a 20 wt% nHA-rGO sheet solution formed the most stable hydrogel. In vitro , nHA-rGO scaffolds killed all but 8% of osteosarcoma cells (MG-63) under 808 nm near-infrared laser irradiation for 20 min. SEM images and live/dead staining of MG-63 cells in nHA-rGO also confirmed the therapeutic efficacy of the scaffolds...

Mechanically robust hydrogels are promising biomaterials as artificial supportive tissue. These applications require selective and robust bonding of the hydrogels to living tissue. Recently, we achieved strong in vivo bone bonding of a tough double network (DN) hydrogel, a potential material for use as artificial cartilage and tendon, by hybridizing osteoconductive hydroxyapatite (HAp) in the gel surface layer. In this work, we report micro patterning of HAp at the surface of the DN hydrogel for selective osteoconduction...

The survival and growth of multiple myeloma (MM) cells are facilitated by cell-cell interactions with bone marrow stromal cells and the bone marrow microenvironment. These interactions induce de novo drug resistance known as cell adhesion-mediated drug resistance. Our previous results recently revealed that the receptor activator of NF-κB (RANK) ligand (RANKL), which is expressed by bone marrow stromal cells, contributes to anti-cancer drug resistance through the activation of various signaling molecules and suppression of Bim expression in RANK-expressing MM cells...

BACKGROUND: Invasive cervical resorption (ICR) is a relatively uncommon form of external tooth resorption, characterized by an invasive nature. It is usually painless and detection of lesions is often made incidentally. Three-dimensional imaging techniques, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), are useful in the diagnosis and management of ICR as the true extent of the defect cannot always be estimated using conventional radiographs. AIM: The aim of this article is to report on the successful treatment of ICR in mandibular first molar by nonsurgical approach and follow-up by means of CBCT...

Nowadays, the need of novel strategies to repair and regenerate bone defects in the field of biomedical applications has increased. Novel approaches include the design of natural bioactive scaffolds mimicking bone tissue. These bioactive scaffolds have to possess biophysical properties suitable to address biological response towards newly bone tissue formation. In particular, scaffold porosity and pore size play a pivotal role in cell migration, adhesion and proliferation, thus increasing cell-material surface interaction and osteogenic signals transmission...

Alginate (Alg) hydrogels, the most popular natural biomaterials, mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM) microenvironment and offer potential biomedical applications. Despite their excellent properties such as biocompatibility, hydrophilicity and ionic crosslinking, the absence of an intrinsic cell adhesion domain lessens their cell-carrier applications in tissue engineering. Herein, we suggest a three-dimensional (3D) cell culture system by integrating Alg hydrogel and fibroblast-derived matrix (FDM). FDM including cell-adhesion motifs, signaling, and physico-mechanical cues is prepared by the decellularization process by avoiding unfavorable chemical reactions...

We developed the 3D-printed poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate)/calcium sulfate hemihydrate (PHBV/CaSH) scaffolds by using fused deposition modelling (FDM) technique and then coated the scaffolds with chitosan (CS) acetic acid solution. After drying and neutralization, CS hydrogel was formed on the surface of the scaffolds. The resultant PHBV/CaSH/CS scaffolds could promote the adhesion and proliferation of rat bone marrow stromal cells (rBMSCs) and enhance the osteogenesis of rBMSCs by up-regulating the expression level of osteogenic genes compared to the PHBV and PHBV/CaSH scaffolds...
