This study evaluates mineralized nanofibrous polymeric scaffolds at supporting in vitro osteogenic differentiation of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and in vivo bone tissue regeneration. Co-electrospin, alternative soaking, and electrodeposition were used to introduce hydroxyapatite in non-mulberry silk fibroin grafted poly(Є-caprolactone) nanofibrous scaffolds. Bone morphogenic protein-2 and Transforming growth factor-β, at a potency ratio of 1:1, are covalently coupled onto the scaffolds. hMSCs proliferation and interactions are studied through MTT and Alamar blue assay and scanning electron and confocal microscopy...

REVIEW
Liqun Ning, Xiongbiao Chen
Extrusion-based bio-printing has great potential as a technique for manipulating biomaterials and living cells to create three-dimensional (3D) scaffolds for damaged tissue repair and function restoration. Over the last two decades, advances in both engineering techniques and life sciences have evolved extrusion-based bio-printing from a simple technique to one able to create diverse tissue scaffolds from a wide range of biomaterials and cell types. However, the complexities associated with synthesis of materials for bio-printing and manipulation of multiple materials and cells in bio-printing pose many challenges for scaffold fabrication...

Processing of hydrogels represents a main challenge for the prospective application of additive manufacturing (AM) to soft tissue engineering. Furthermore, direct manufacturing of tissue precursors with a cell density similar to native tissues has the potential to overcome the extensive in vitro culture required for conventional cell-seeded scaffolds seeking to fabricate constructs with tailored structural and functional properties. In this work, we present a simple AM methodology that exploits the thermoresponsive behavior of a block copolymer (Pluronic®) as a means to obtain good shape retention at physiological conditions and to induce cellular alignment...

Regulating soft tissue repair to prevent fibrosis and promote regeneration is central to creating a microenvironment conducive to soft tissue development. Macrophages play an important role in this process. Their response can be modulated using biomaterials, altering cytokine and growth factor secretion to promote regeneration. Electrospun polydioxanone (PDO) fiber scaffolds promoted an M2 phenotype when macrophages were cultured on large diameter, highly porous scaffolds, but an M1 phenotype on smaller diameter fibers...

In this study, we investigated the use of three-dimensional electrospun poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)/poly(ε-caprolactone) (PLGA/PCL) scaffolds seeded and cultured with postnatal dental cells, for improved dental tissue regeneration. Wet-electrospinning combined with ultrasonic treatment was studied as a method to enhance scaffold porosity and to promote cell-cell interactions. We also investigated whether nano-hydroxyapatite (nHA) incorporation could enhance dental cell differentiation. All scaffolds were seeded with human tooth pulp-derived dental mesenchymal (hDM) cells, or a combination of hDM and pig dental epithelial (pDE) cells, cultured for up to 28 days...

Decellularized human livers are considered the perfect extracellular matrix (ECM) surrogate because both three-dimensional architecture and biological features of the hepatic microenvironment are thought to be preserved. However, donor human livers are in chronically short supply, both for transplantation or as decellularized scaffolds, and will become even scarcer as life expectancy increases. It is hence of interest to determine the structural and biochemical properties of human hepatic ECM to derive design criteria for engineering biomimetic scaffolds...

Spider major ampullate silk fibers have been shown to display a unique combination of relatively high fracture strength and toughness compared to other fibers and show potential for tissue engineering scaffolds. While it is not possible to mass produce native spider silks, the potential ability to produce fibers from recombinant spider silk fibers could allow for an increased innovation rate within tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. In this pilot study, we improved upon a prior fabrication route by both changing the expression host and additives to the fiber pulling precursor solution to improve the performance of fibers...

Understanding the molecular events that regulate osteoblast differentiation is essential for the development of effective approaches to bone regeneration. In this study, we analysed the osteoinductive properties of extracellular calcium in bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cell (BM-MSC) differentiation. We cultured BM-MSCs in 3D gelatin scaffolds with Ca2+ and BMP-2 as osteoinductive agents. Early and late osteogenic gene expression and bone regeneration in a calvarial critical-size defect model demonstrate that extracellular Ca2+ enhances the effects of BMP-2 on Osteocalcin, Runx2 and Osterix expression and promotes bone regeneration in vivo...

Mandibular osteoradionecrosis is a severe side effect of radiotherapy after the treatment of squamous cell carcinomas of the upper aerodigestive tract. As an alternative to its treatment by micro-anastomosed free-flaps, preclinical tissular engineering studies have been developed. Total bone marrow (TBM) associated with biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) significantly enhanced bone formation in irradiated bone. One mechanism, explaining how bone marrow cells can help regenerate tissues like this, is the paracrine effect...

INTRODUCTION: Autologous free flaps are the criterion standard for reconstructions of complex soft tissue defects; however, they are limited by donor-site morbidities. The arteriovenous (AV) loop model enables the generation of soft tissue constructs based on acellular dermal matrices with a functional microvasculature and minimal donor site morbidity. The ideal scaffold for AV loop-based tissue engineering has not been determined. METHODS: AV loops were placed into subcutaneous isolation chambers filled with either a collagen-elastin scaffold or a collagen-glycosaminoglycan scaffold in the thighs of rats...

The dental follicle (DF), most often associated with unerupted teeth, is a condensation of ectomesenchymal cells that surrounds the tooth germ in early stages of tooth development. In the present study, we aim to isolate epithelial stem-like cells from the human DF and explore their potential differentiation into salivary gland (SG) cells. We demonstrated the expression of stem cell-related genes in the epithelial components of human DF tissues, and these epithelial progenitor cells could be isolated and ex vivo expanded in a reproducible manner...

How to achieve three-dimensional (3D) cell alignment and subsequent prompt tissue regeneration remains a great challenge. Here, inspired by the interior 3D architecture of native arteries, we develop a new 3D multilayered shape memory vascular scaffold with a hierarchically changeable micropatterned surface for vascularization. The shape memory function renders the implantation of the scaffold safe and convenient via minimally invasive surgery. By co-culturing endothelial cells (ECs) and vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) on the 3D multilayered structure, the inner monolayer, which has a square micropatterned surface, can promote EC adhesion and migration, resulting in rapid endothelialization; the outer multilayers, which have rectangular micropatterned surfaces, can induce a circumferential alignment of VSMCs...

As the gap between donors and patients in need of an organ transplant continues to widen, research in regenerative medicine seeks to provide alternative strategies for treatment. One of the most promising techniques for tissue and organ regeneration is decellularization, in which the extracellular matrix (ECM) is isolated from its native cells and genetic material in order to produce a natural scaffold. The ECM, which ideally retains its inherent structural, biochemical, and biomechanical cues, can then be recellularized to produce a functional tissue or organ...

The clinical management of large-size cartilage lesions is difficult due to the limited regenerative ability of the cartilage. Different biomaterials have been used to develop tissue engineering substitutes for cartilage repair, including chitosan alone or in combination with growth factors to improve its chondrogenic properties. The main objective of this investigation was to evaluate the benefits of combining activated platelet-rich plasma with a stabilized porous chitosan scaffold for cartilage regeneration...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of polycaprolactone-ascobic acid (PCL-AA) scaffolds in promoting repair of articular cartilage defects in a rabbit model. METHODS: The cartilage defects (3.5 mm in diameter and 3.0 mm in depth) were created in the trochlear groove of the bilateral knees of eight 6-month-old male New Zealand white rabbits. The rabbit models were then randomized into 3 groups to receive implantation of PCL-AA scaffolds (group A, n=8), implantation of PCL scaffolds without AA (group B, n=5), or no treatment (group C, n=3)...

Dental pulp tissue engineering is possible after insertion of pulpal stem cells combined with a scaffold into empty root canals. Commonly used biomaterials are collagen or poly(lactic) acid, which are either difficult to modify or to insert into such a narrow space. New hydrogel scaffolds with bioactive, specifically tailored functions could optimize the conditions to engineer dental pulp. Different synthetic and natural hydrogels were tested for their suitability to engineer dental pulp. Two functionalized modifications of polyethylene glycol were developed in this study and compared to a self-assembling peptide as well as to collagen and fibrin...
