Enhancement of methane production during anaerobic digestion of waste activated sludge (WAS) could improve the energy self sufficiency of the municipal wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Therefore, mixing WAS with organic wastes improved process performance and stability. In this work, the anaerobic co-digestion of WAS combined with the olive processing wastewater (OPW) was investigated and associated with the energetic benefits and microbial populations shifts. The bio-methane potential (BMP) of various WAS and OPW mixtures corresponding to increased phenols concentrations were tested...

BACKGROUND: Platelet concentrates represent a new approach to improve tissue regeneration and can be used alone or together with autogenous bone, recombinant human growth factors, and/or other biomaterials, to enhance tissue regeneration. Among platelet concentrates, concentrated growth factors (CGFs) exhibit an interesting clinical and biotechnological application potential. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro release of 4 growth factors (bone morphogenetic proteins [BMP] -2, BMP-7, transforming growth factor [TGF] -β1, and insulin-like growth factor [IGF] -1) by the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) technique, in CGFs mixed or not with β-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP), using or not the Round-up device, at different times...

Worldwide, neovascular age‑related macular degeneration (nAMD) is one of the most common causes of blindness in the elderly. In particular, degeneration of retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells represents the main pathological process in the development of nAMD, and oxidative stress serves a major role. The present study aimed to investigate the association between bone morphogenetic protein 6 (BMP‑6) and nAMD. BMP‑6 concentration was significantly reduced in patients with wet nAMD compared with in the control group...

Ex vivo non-viral gene delivery of bone-inductive factors has the potential to heal bone defects. Due to their inherent role in new bone formation, multipotent stromal cells (MSCs) have been studied as the primary target cell for gene delivery in a preclinical setting. The relative contribution of autocrine and paracrine mechanisms, and the need of osteogenic cells, remains unclear. This study investigates the contribution of MSCs as producer of transgenic BMPs and to what extent the seeded MSCs participate in actual osteogenesis...

The heart is a highly structured organ consisting of different cell types, including myocytes, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, stem cells, and inflammatory cells. This pluricellularity provides the opportunity of intercellular communication within the organ, with subsequent optimization of its function. Intercellular cross-talk is indispensable during cardiac development, but also plays a substantial modulatory role in the normal and failing heart of adults. More specifically, factors secreted by cardiac microvascular endothelial cells modulate cardiac performance and either positively or negatively affect cardiac remodeling...

Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) effectively induces bone healing. However, the efficacy of BMP-2 relies heavily on its delivery vehicle because of its short half-life. We utilized a microcarrier fabricated by the cryopolymerization of gelatin methacrylate (cryoGelMA) infused with bone morphogenetic protein-2 (cryoGelMA-BMP-2) for the sustained and localized release of growth factors. Two dogs with radius and ulnar fractures were treated with implanted cryoGelMA-BMP-2 to accelerate bone healing. The cases were followed up for 6 months and 2 months after surgery, respectively...

Heterotopic ossification (HO), the pathological extraskeletal formation of bone, can arise from blast injuries, severe burns, orthopedic procedures and gain-of-function mutations in a component of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signaling pathway, the ACVR1/ALK2 receptor serine-threonine (protein) kinase, causative of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP). All three ALKs (-2, -3, -6) that play roles in bone morphogenesis contribute to trauma-induced HO, hence are well-validated pharmacological targets...

Non-viral gene delivery is a safe technique to release sustained physiologic dosages of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP). Co-delivery of multiple BMPs can result in the formation of more potent BMP heterodimers. In this study, non-viral co-delivery of BMP-2/6 and BMP-2/7, as a mean to produce heterodimers, was assessed. Goat MSCs were non-virally transfected with plasmid DNA encoding BMP isoforms (pBMP) known to be relevant for osteogenesis: BMP-2, -6 or -7. As a result, BMP-2, -6 and -7 were produced and detectable for up to 14 d and their combined delivery (pBMP-2 with pBMP-6 or pBMP-7) was used to create BMP-2/6 and BM-2/7 heterodimers...

Emerging biomimetic tissue engineering strategies aim to partially recapitulate fundamental events that transpire during embryonic skeletal development; namely, cellular self-organization and targeted morphogenetic pathway activation. Here, we describe self-assembled, scaffold-free human mesenchymal stem cell (hMSC) rings featuring microparticle-mediated presentation of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) and bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2). We tested the hypothesis that spatiotemporally-controlled dual presentation of TGF-β1 and BMP-2 is superior in modulating in vitro endochondral ossification of high-density cellular constructs compared to single morphogen delivery...
