  • Development of scaffold for use in osteochondral tissue engineering

    In this study, the bone component of a bi-phasic scaffold was developed and mechanically tested to compare it to that of subchondral bone properties. The bone component was composed of poly (ε-caprolactone):poly (ethylene oxide):sucrose (PCL:PEO:sucrose) that exhibited both pore size and porosity similar to that of cancellous bone, thereby providing a similar mechanical structure for the osteoblasts to differentiate and grow. The compressive Young's Modulus values ranged from 22.15 - 16.64 MPa, similar to that of literature values for subchondral bone [1]. Additionally, pore size was measured to be approximately 143 μm, based on SEM imaging. An initial cell study was done to confirm the cell viability of each of the components of the bi-phasic scaffold, independently. Future experiments will focus on developing and testing the complete bi-phasic scaffold through compression testing, as well as undergoing a cell study utilizing rat mesenchymal stem cells to observe the proliferation and differentiation within the bi-phasic scaffold for osteochondral tissue engineering.

  • Direct laser writing of polylactide 3D scaffolds for neural tissue engineering applications

    Here, we investigate the relationship between scaffold topology and cell growth of neural cells on 3D scaffolds fabricated using Direct fs Laser Writing (DLW) of a polylactide-based material. DLW has been demonstrated as a technology for the fabrication of 3D structures with high resolution . The technique is based on the phenomenon of multi-photon polymerization. When the beam of an ultrafast infrared laser is tightly focused into the volume of a photosensitive material, the polymerization process can be initiated by nonlinear absorption within the focal volume. By moving the laser focus three- dimensionally through the photosensitive material, 3D structures can be fabricated. Recently, we explored DLW for use in the construction of biodegradable scaffolds using a poly-caprolactone based photopolymer.

    Currently, the largest ongoing effort in cellular and tissue cardiomyoplasty therapies is the search for a suitable cell source. The following are the desirable attributes of an ideal cell source: 1) autologous (not requiring immune suppression), 2) able to substantially proliferate in vitro, 3) having a similar function when compared to host cardiomyocytes, and 4) able to couple with the host cells electrically and mechanically. A number of cell types have been attempted for cellular and tissue engineering therapies in the heart.

  • Temporal and spatial control over soluble protein signaling for musculoskeletal tissue engineering

    Orthopedic tissue engineering strategies have developed rapidly in response to large and growing clinical needs. However, current clinical methods for replacement of natural tissue function have significant limitations, and pragmatic challenges have hindered clinical use of emerging tissue engineering approaches. In addition, current methods are not yet capable of achieving complex spatial and temporal regulation of soluble signaling (e.g. growth factor signaling), which may be required for complex, functional tissue regeneration. We have begun to develop a series of new medical devices, which are designed to temporally and spatially regulate growth factor and cytokine signaling during tissue regeneration. The initial goal of these studies is to regulate the behavior of multipotent stem cells, and to promote formation of clinically relevant tissue interfaces (e.g. bone-tendon interfaces). The ultimate goal is to further understand and recapitulate the complex processes that lead to functional musculoskeletal development and regeneration.

  • Composite Polymeric Scaffolds with Controlled Pore Opening and Drug Delivery for Tissue Engineering Applications

    Composite scaffolds fabricated from biodegradable polymers as drug carriers are used extensively in the field of tissue engineering. Ideal tissue engineering scaffolds must possess a 3D interconnected porous network for tissue ingrowth and construct vascularization. However, the porous interconnected network may reduce the initial mechanical support needed for the scaffold in the implant site. In this study, composite scaffolds consisted of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) ≤ 250 μ MS and Simvastatin loaded poly beta amino acid (PBAE) Hydrogel Microspheres (HG MS) ≤ ~500 μ were fabricated via a novel device to investigate several new functions: controlled drug release, PBAE HG MS time-dependent degradation exhibiting pore opening resulting in interconnected pattern of porosity development, better initial mechanical support and the true wet-state compressive moduli.

  • In vitro Degradation Behavior of Photopolymerized PEG Hydrogels as Tissue Engineering Scaffold

    PEGDA was photopolymerized to form hydrogels under different UV light irradiation times. In order to investigate the degradation rate in vitro, the various PEGDA hydrogels were incubated in PBS solution at 37degC in shaking water bath system. The physical-chemical properties such as pH values, dimension, mass and volume change, compressive strength and Young's modulus were measured. MALDI-MS and SEM were employed to evaluate the PBS solutions and corroded hydrogels after a designed period of time till 8 weeks. The results indicate that the PEGDA formed hydrogels can be tailored with prompted properties specifically for various cell-based tissue engineering needs

  • Biomaterials in epithelial tissue engineering: A review

    This work presents a review of most used biomaterials in the field of tissue engineering with applications to epithelial tissue. The analysis has reviewed fifty different scientific articles published from 1997 to 2012. The information is classified according to the type as natural or synthetic biomaterials in epithelial tissue engineering, and according to its application as dermal, epidermal, or dermal-epidermal substitutes. The advantages and disadvantages of its implementation as in vitro or clinical applications are highlighted. As a result, natural materials are suitable in terms of biocompatibility with the receiver at the time of graft, but they have low mechanical resistance. Moreover, synthetic materials have shown high mechanical resistance but remain under investigation to develop more biocompatible products and easy removal processes. Within the study, it was found as a very promising area the use of nanomaterials and scaffold techniques for creating structures that support the tissue engineering.

  • Production and characterization of tissue engineering scaffolds based on polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate polymers

    In the engineering of various tissues, the scaffold material and architecture of the scaffold can affect cell seeding and tissue growth both in vitro and in vivo. This paper reports the production of three-dimensional, highly porous tissue engineering scaffolds based on Poly (hydroxybutyrate-co- hydroxyvalerate) (PHBV) biopolymers. Polyhydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate (PHBV) is a biocompatible and biodegradable polymer that can be used in tissue engineering. Hydroxyapatite (HA) is osetoconductive and is being used for bone replacement. The composite scaffolds made of these two materials have great potential for bone tissue engineering. This paper reports the fabrication and characterization of three-dimensional, highly porous HA/PHBV composite scaffolds. The scaffolds were produced using an emulsion freezing/freeze- drying technique. The structure and properties of composite scaffolds were investigated using various techniques.

  • Electrospun PET-PU scaffolds for vascular tissue engineering

    The incidence of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is projected to continuously increase in the coming decades, with a colossal associated cost of treatment. In the US alone, 83.6 million people are estimated to have one or several types of CVDs, with almost half of the patients being older than 60 years of age. Many of these cases require arterial prosthesis. However, current treatments using both natural and synthetic grafts still have severe shortcomings. Tissue engineering carries great potential to overcome these shortcomings. Yet, despite significant advances in tissue engineering, in the recent years, tissue-engineered vascular grafts with native blood vessels like properties and behavior have remained elusive. For widespread clinical application of tissue-engineered grafts, they must be able to withstand the forces associated with blood flow, they must be biocompatible, and they must maintain long-term patency to prevent occlusions. In our current work, we propose the use of composite PET:PU scaffolds for the development of synthetic vascular grafts. For this purpose, electrospun PET:PU scaffolds of different blending ratios have been fabricated and their mechanical properties studied. The scaffold with the properties that best promise to suit the purpose of vascular tissue engineering has then been seeded with cells and the proliferation, and viability of these cells have been investigated. The investigation of the growth of vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells and incorporation of these cells into the PET:PU scaffolds for development of implantable vascular grafts is one of the future directions for the current work.

  • Towards tissue engineering of meniscus substitutes: selection of cell source and culture environment

    With the ultimate goal to engineer a meniscus substitute based on autologous cells, we aimed this work at identifying (i) a human cell source capable of generating fibrocartilaginous tissues and (ii) a culture environment promoting the development of bi-zonal constructs, resembling the complex structure and function of a meniscus. The post-expansion differentiation capacity of different chondrogenic cells readily available by knee arthroscopy, namely inner meniscus, fat pad, synovial membrane cells and articular chondrocytes (AC), was assessed within hyaluronan based non-woven meshes. Under our experimental conditions, only expanded AC generated tissues containing relevant amounts of glycosaminoglycans (GAG) and with cell phenotypes compatible with those of the inner and outer meniscus regions. Physical conditioning of constructs generated by expanded AC was applied using mixed flasks. The hydrodynamic environment of mixed flasks was instrumental to promote the formation of bi-zonal tissues, with an inner region rich in GAG and stiffer in compression and an outer rim rich in collagen and stiffer in tension. Therefore, the use of AC cultured within porous scaffolds in mixed flasks allowed engineering of constructs resembling some aspects of the phenotype and function of meniscus tissue
