The objective of this study was to four-dimensional (4D) print novel biomimetic gradient tissue scaffolds with highly biocompatible naturally derived smart polymers. The term "4D printing" refers to the inherent smart shape transformation of fabricated constructs when implanted minimally invasively for seamless and dynamic integration. For this purpose, a series of novel shape memory polymers with excellent biocompatibility and tunable shape changing effects were synthesized and cured in the presence of three-dimensional printed sacrificial molds, which were subsequently dissolved to create controllable and graded porosity within the scaffold...

Radiation therapy (RT) is a crucial component of cancer care, used in the treatment of over 50% of cancer patients. Patients undergoing image guided RT or brachytherapy routinely have inert RT biomaterials implanted into their tumors. The single function of these RT biomaterials is to ensure geometric accuracy during treatment. Recent studies have proposed that the inert biomaterials could be upgraded to "smart" RT biomaterials, designed to do more than 1 function. Such smart biomaterials include next-generation fiducial markers, brachytherapy spacers, and balloon applicators, designed to respond to stimuli and perform additional desirable functions like controlled delivery of therapy-enhancing payloads directly into the tumor subvolume while minimizing normal tissue toxicities...

The development of smart prosthetics, scaffolds, and biomaterials for tissue engineering and organ-on-a-chip devices heavily depends on the understanding and control of biotic/abiotic interfaces. In recent years, the nanometer scale emerged as the predominant dimension for processes impacting on protein adsorption and cellular responses on surfaces. In this context, the extracellular matrix (ECM) can be seen as the prototype for an intricate natural structure assembled by nanoscale building blocks forming highly variable nanoscale configurations, dictating cellular behavior and fate...

Ideally, biomaterials designed to play specific physical and physiological roles in vivo should comprise components and microarchitectures analogous to those of the native tissues they intend to replace. For that, implantable biomaterials need to be carefully designed to have the correct structural and compositional properties, which consequently impart their bio-function. In this study, we showed that the control of such properties can be defined from the bottom-up, using smart surface templates to modulate the structure, composition, and bio-mechanics of human transplantable tissues...

Biocatalytic control of molecular self-assembly provides an effective approach for developing smart biomaterials, allowing versatile enzyme-mediated tuning of material structure and properties as well as enabling biomedical applications. We functionalized surfaces with bioinspired polydopamine and polyphenol coatings to study the effects of enzyme surface localization and surface release on the self-assembly process. We show how these coatings could be conveniently used to release enzymes for bulk gelation as well as to irreversibly immobilize enzymes for localizing the self-assembly to the surface...

: Glucose-responsive system is one of important options for self-regulated insulin delivery to treat diabetes, which has become an issue of great public health concern in the world. In this study, we developed a novel and biocompatible glucose-responsive insulin delivery system using a pH-sensitive peptide hydrogel as a carrier loaded with glucose oxidase, catalase and insulin. The peptide could self-assemble into hydrogel under physiological conditions. When hypoglycemia is encountered, neighboring alkaline amino acid side chains are significantly repulsed due to reduced local pH by the enzymatic conversion of glucose into glucoinc acid...

Hydrogels with rapid and strong response to external stimuli and possessing high elasticity and strength have been considered as platform materials for numerous applications, e.g., in biomaterials engineering. Thermoresponsive hydrogels based on semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (semi-IPN) featuring N-isopropylacrylamide with copolymers of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) p(NIPAM-HEMA) chains are prepared and described. The copolymer was characterized by FTIR, NMR, and GPC. The semi-IPN structured hydrogel and its responsive properties were evaluated by dynamic mechanical measurements, SEM, DSC, equilibrium swelling ratio, and dynamic deswelling tests...

Biomaterials surface design is critical for the control of materials and biological system interactions. Being regulated by a layer of molecular dimensions, bioadhesion could be effectively tailored by polymer surface grafting. Basically, this surface modification can be controlled by radical polymerization, which is a useful tool for this purpose. The aim of this review is to provide a comprehensive overview of the role of surface characteristics on bioadhesion properties. We place a particular focus on biomaterials functionalized with a brush surface, on presentation of grafting techniques for "grafting to" and "grafting from" strategies and on brush characterization methods...

Smart biomaterials for active targeting are a novel way for biosensing, gene and drug delivery, and bioimaging. The functional additives are chosen according to the material carrier characteristics, i.e. the functional mercapto acids of different lengths. In order to identify the target tissue, cell, organ or molecule, the biomaterial must be equipped with a recognizing molecule on its surface. In most cases, semiconductor o metal materials are employed in bioimaging and biosensing applications; in gene and drug delivery area, it is useful to employ porous nanoparticles as carriers...

Conducting polymer, as a "smart" biomaterial, has been increasingly used to construct tissue engineered scaffold for nerve tissue regeneration. In this study, a novel porous conductive scaffold was prepared by incorporating conductive hyaluronic acid (HA) doped-poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT-HA) nanoparticles into a chitosan/gelatin (Cs/Gel) matrix. The physicochemical characteristics of Cs/Gel scaffold with 0-10wt% PEDOT-HA were analyzed and the results indicated that the incorporation of PEDOT-HA into scaffold increased the electrical and mechanical properties while decreasing the porosity and water absorption...

Smart materials of biological origin are attracting a lot of attention nowadays, especially as catalysts, carriers or adsorbents. Among them, magnetically modified biomaterials are especially important due to their response to external magnetic field. This report demonstrates that naturally occurring micrometer sized, high aspect ratio material (native and autoclaved Leptothrix sp. sheaths) efficiently bind synthetically prepared magnetite and maghemite nanoparticles and their aggregates. Magnetic modification of Leptothrix sheaths enables to prepare a promising material for advanced biotechnology and environmental technology applications...

Biocompatible lipid hybrid particles composed of montmorillonite and medium chain triglycerides were engineered for the first time by spray drying oil-in-water emulsions stabilized by montmorillonite platelets to form montmorillonite-lipid hybrid (MLH) microparticles containing up to 75% w/w lipid. In vitro lipolysis studies under simulated intestinal conditions indicated that the specific porous nanoarchitecture and surface chemistry of MLH particles significantly increased the rate (>10-fold) and extent of lipase-mediated digestion compared to that of coarse and homogenized submicrometer triglyceride emulsions...

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are intensively investigated for regenerative medicine applications due to their ease of isolation and multilineage differentiation capacity. Hence, designing instructive microenvironments to guide MSC behavior is important for the generation of smart interfaces to enhance biomaterial performance in guiding desired tissue formation. Supported lipid bilayers (SLBs) as cell membrane mimetics can be employed as biological interfaces with easily tunable characteristics such as biospecificity, mobility, and density of predesigned ligand molecules...

: In this study, an intelligent drug delivery system was developed by capping doxorubicin (DOX)-loaded hollow mesoporous CuS nanoparticles (HMCuS NPs) with superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles (IONPs). Under near infrared (NIR) light irradiation, the versatile HMCuS NPs could exploit the merits of both photothermal therapy (PTT) and photodynamic therapy (PDT) simultaneously. Herein, the multifunctional IONPs as gatekeeper with the enhanced capping efficiency were supposed to realize "zero premature release" and minimize the adverse side effects during the drug delivery in vivo...

The design of a collagen scaffold containing iron oxide nanostructures capped by a TiO2 (anatase) layer is reported. The TiO2 shell is proposed to perform a dual role: 1) as an innovative and biocompatible cross-linker agent, providing binding sites to the protein moiety, through the well-known TiO2 chemical affinity towards carboxyl groups, and 2) as a protective surface layer for the paramagnetic core against oxidation. Simultaneously, the presence of the nanostructures confers to the collagen gel sensitivity to an external stimulus; that is, the application of a magnetic field...

Accelerating the integration of a joint replacement or the healing of a bone fracture, particularly a complicated non-union fracture, would improve patient welfare and decrease healthcare costs. Currently, an autologous bone graft is the gold standard method for the treatment of complicated non-union fractures, but it is not always possible to harvest such a graft. A proactive highly inductive so-called smart material approach is pertinent in these cases. In this study, the surface chemistry of a previously approved material with desirable bulk material properties was modified to investigate its potential as an economical and effective alternative...
