Functional arteries grown in vitro. (1/797)

A tissue engineering approach was developed to produce arbitrary lengths of vascular graft material from smooth muscle and endothelial cells that were derived from a biopsy of vascular tissue. Bovine vessels cultured under pulsatile conditions had rupture strengths greater than 2000 millimeters of mercury, suture retention strengths of up to 90 grams, and collagen contents of up to 50 percent. Cultured vessels also showed contractile responses to pharmacological agents and contained smooth muscle cells that displayed markers of differentiation such as calponin and myosin heavy chains. Tissue-engineered arteries were implanted in miniature swine, with patency documented up to 24 days by digital angiography.  (+info)

Outcomes of irradiated polyglactin 910 Vicryl Rapide fast-absorbing suture in oral and scalp wounds. (2/797)

BACKGROUND: This study evaluated the outcome of wounds closed with irradiated polyglactin 910 (IRPG) Vicryl Rapide (Ethicon, Somerville, N.J.). METHOD: Seventy-one patients with 80 oral wounds and 42 patients with 42 scalp wounds closed with IRPG were evaluated on the day of surgery, then one, seven, 14, 28 and 90 days following surgery. The incidence of inflammation, suppuration and hypertrophic scarring was recorded, along with the timing of spontaneous suture disappearance. This suture material was compared with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) sutures used in dental implant patients, traditional polyglycolic acid (PGLA) sutures used in osteotomy patients and skin staples used in patients with scalp wounds. RESULTS: In the group with intraoral wounds, there were two cases of suppuration with no inflammatory reactions or hypertrophic scarring when IRPG sutures were used, compared to three cases of suppuration with the traditional PGLA sutures. In the group with scalp wounds, there was no suppuration or hypertrophic scarring with IRPG sutures and one inflammatory reaction with skin staples. IRPG sutures never required removal, while all staples, PGLA and PTFE sutures eventually required separate removal. CONCLUSION: Irradiated polyglactin 910 Vicryl Rapide is a useful suture material with both intra- and extraoral applications in the pediatric and adult populations.  (+info)

Enhancement of osteogenesis in vitro and in vivo by a novel osteoblast differentiation promoting compound, TAK-778. (3/797)

TAK-778 [(2R,4S)-(-)-N-(4-diethoxyphosphorylmethylphenyl)-1,2,4, 5-tetrahydro-4-methyl-7, 8-methylenedioxy-5-oxo-3-benzothiepin-2-carboxyamide; mw 505.53], a novel osteoblast differentiation promoting compound, was characterized in vitro and in vivo models. TAK-778 at doses of 10(-6) M and higher promoted potently bone-like nodule formation in the presence of dexamethasone in rat bone marrow stromal cell culture. This was accompanied by increases in cellular alkaline phosphatase activity, soluble collagen release, and osteocalcin secretion. Under the culture conditions, TAK-778 also stimulated the secretion of transforming growth factor-beta and insulin-like growth factor-I, indicating that TAK-778 may exert regulatory effects on osteoblast differentiation via autocrine/paracrine mechanisms. Furthermore, the in vivo osteogenic potential of TAK-778 was studied in bony defect and osteotomy animal models, using sustained release microcapsules consisted of a biodegradable polymer, poly (dl-lactic/glycolic) acid (PLGA). Single local injection of TAK-778/PLGA-microcapsules (PLGA-MC) (0.2-5 mg/site) to rat skull defects resulted in a dose-dependent increase in new bone area within the defects after 4 weeks. When the pellet containing TAK-778/PLGA-MC (4 mg/pellet) was packed into place to fill the tibial segmental defect in rabbit, this pellet induced osseous union within 2 months, whereas the placebo pellet did not. In addition, single local application of TAK-778/PLGA-MC (10 mg/site) to rabbit tibial osteotomy site enhanced callus formation accompanied by an increase in breaking force after 30 days. These results reveal for the first time that a nonendogenous chemical compound promotes potently osteogenesis in vitro and enhances new bone formation during skeletal regeneration and bone repair in vivo and should be useful for the stimulation of fracture healing.  (+info)

Bacterial inactivation by using near- and supercritical carbon dioxide. (4/797)

The three most common methods of sterilization in use today are ethylene oxide exposure, gamma-irradiation, and steam sterilization. Each of these methods has serious limitations for the sterilization of some materials used in medicine, especially thermally and hydrolytically sensitive polymers by themselves and in combination with proteins. In this work, we demonstrate a potential new method of sterilization by using supercritical fluid carbon dioxide. Using this method we achieve complete inactivation of a wide variety of bacterial organisms at moderate temperatures and in the absence of organic solvents or irradiation. Sterilization is a function of both the proximity to the fluid's critical point and the chemical nature of the fluid itself. When biodegradable polymers poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid and polylactic acid were included in the sterilization process, there was no effect on the inactivation efficiency, yet no physical or chemical damage to these thermally and hydrolytically labile materials was observed.  (+info)

Poly-L-lysine improves gene transfer with adenovirus formulated in PLGA microspheres. (5/797)

In vivo gene transfer with recombinant adenovirus vectors can be hindered by the immunogenicity of the adenovirus capsid proteins. Previous work showed that formulation of the vector with biodegradable polymers such as poly-lactic-glycolic acid (PLGA), polyethylene glycol (PEG), or lipids, may shield the virus from inhibition by neutralizing antibodies. Formulation of adenovirus in PLGA microspheres also allowed for extended release in vitro. In experiments described here, we found that the surfactant used in the formation of the primary emulsion could significantly improve the overall yield of virus released. We also tested the effects of adding poly-L-lysine to adenovirus before encapsulation with PLGA. Our results show that although PLL did not effect the yield of virus encapsulated or released from the microspheres, it significantly improved the efficiency of gene transfer after release from the polymer.  (+info)

Enhanced growth of animal and human endothelial cells on biodegradable polymers. (6/797)

Biodegradable polymers such as poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA), poly(glycolic acid) (PGA) and PGA coated with PLLA are being employed for cell transplantation and for in vivo regeneration of vascular tissue. Ingrowth and organization of fibrovascular tissue inside polymer scaffolds lead to the occlusion of the regenerated blood vessel. In order to provide regulatory mechanisms to control the development of an inner capsule, endothelialization of these materials is necessary. To achieve this, we employed a novel ammonia plasma technique to surface modified PLLA substrates. Human endothelial cell (HUVEC) and rabbit microvascular endothelial cell (RbMVEC) growth was studied on modified PLLA and control PLLA. Our studies show that modified PLLA and fibronectin (Fn)-coated modified PLLA exhibited statistically significant improvement in HUVEC and RbMVEC growth (P<0.001) when compared to PLLA and Fn-coated PLLA. Therefore, ammonia plasma treatment gives us the unique capability of modifying prosthetic biomaterials of various constructs with the eventual transplantation of mammalian cells to be used in tissue engineering or as biological implants.  (+info)

Intraocular pharmacokinetics and safety of a humanized monoclonal antibody in rabbits after intravitreal administration of a solution or a PLGA microsphere formulation. (7/797)

Poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA) bioresorbable microspheres are used for controlled-release drug delivery and are particularly promising for ocular indications. The objective of the current study was to evaluate the pharmacokinetics and safety of a recombinant human monoclonal antibody (rhuMAb HER2) in rabbits after bolus intravitreal administration of a solution or a PLGA-microsphere formulation. On Day 0, forty-eight male New Zealand white rabbits (2.3-2.6 kg) were immobilized with intramuscular ketamine/xylazine, and the test materials were injected directly into the vitreous compartment. Group 1 animals received rhuMAb HER2 in 50:50 lactide: glycolide PLGA microspheres; Group 2 animals received rhuMAb HER2 in solution (n = 24/group). The dose for each eye was 25 microg (50 microl). After dosing, animals were sacrificed at 2 min, and on 1, 2, 4, 7, 14, 23, 29, 37, 44, 50, and 56 days (n = 2/timepoint/group). Safety assessment included direct ophthalmoscopy, clinical observations, body weight, and hematology and clinical chemistry panels. At necropsy, vitreous and plasma were collected for pharmacokinetics and analysis for antibodies to rhuMAb HER2, and the vitreal pellet (Group 1) was prepared for histologic evaluation. All animals completed the study per protocol-both treatments were well tolerated, and no suppurative or mixed inflammatory cell reaction was observed in the vitreal samples (Group 1) at any of the time points examined. Antibodies to rhuMAb HER2 were detected in plasma samples by Day 7 in both treatment groups, but infrequently in vitreous samples. There were no safety implications associated with this immune response. The in vitro characterization of the PLGA microspheres provided reasonable projections of the in vivo rhuMAb HER2 release kinetics (Group 1). The total amount of antibody that was released was similar in vitro (25.9%) and in vivo (32.4%). RhuMAb HER2 (Group 2) was cleared slowly from the vitreous compartment, with initial and terminal half-lives of 0.9 and 5.6 days, respectively. The volume of distribution approximated the vitreous volume in a rabbit eye.  (+info)

Comparison of different methods of intracerebral administration of radioiododeoxyuridine for glioma therapy using a rat model. (8/797)

The Auger electron emitting agent 5-[125I]iodo-2'-deoxyuridine (i.e. [125I]IUdR) holds promise for the treatment of residual glioma after surgery because this thymidine analogue kills only proliferating cells. However, malignant cells which are not synthesizing DNA during exposure to the radiopharmaceutical will be spared. To determine whether tumour incorporation of [125I]IUdR could be enhanced by protracted administration, we used a C6 cell line, growing in the brains of Wistar rats, as a glioma model and compared three methods of intracerebral delivery of [125I]IUdR. Twenty-four hours after administration of drug, autoradiography of brain sections demonstrated nuclear uptake of the radiopharmaceutical in cells throughout tumour while normal brain cells remained free of radioactivity. The [125I]IUdR labelling indices (% +/- s.e.m.) achieved were 6.2 (0.4) by single injection, 22.5 (4.1) using a sustained release polymer implant (poly(lactide-co-glycolide)) and 34.3 (2.0) by mini-osmotic pump. These results emphasize the need for a sustained delivery system as a prerequisite for effective treatment. These findings are also encouraging for the development of a sustained release system for radiolabelled IUdR for use in the treatment of intracranial tumours, particularly in the immediate postoperative setting.  (+info)

Introduction: Treatment of choice for pleomorphic adenoma of the hard palate is wide local resection of the tumor including the overlying mucosa and underlying periosteum. Most conventional methods for covering the resulting palatal wound are prosthetic devices. In this case, we examined the validity of grafting a polyglycolic acid sheet and fibrin glue over a mucosal defect of the palate with a bony surface, as a substitute for a surgical splint. Case Report: A 39-year-old male presented with a large, solid mass located on the right hard palate. Fine-needle aspiration cytology suggested pleomorphic adenoma. The patient underwent wide local resection of the lesion, and the mucosal defect was immediately covered with polyglycolic acid sheets, that were fixed with a fibrin glue spray. These sheets were tightly placed and remained in the wound, which led to complete epithelialization of the wound surface. Conclusion: Grafting the polyglycolic acid sheet with fibrin glue fixation is a useful substitute for

Introduction Poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles (NPs) are widely used as delivery carriers for anticancer drugs. However, the obvious initial burst release phenomenon of PLGA nanoparticles is unfavorable for anticancer drugs that have significant systemic toxicity as the drug release also needs to be well controlled. To overcome these shortcomings, the objective of the present study was to create multilayered bio-polyelectrolyte chitosan (CHI) and alginate (ALG) composite by a layer by layer (LbL) self-assembly process on the surface of doxorubicin (DOX)-PLGA NPs. Materials and Methods. DOX (99.41% purity) was purchased from HuaFeng United Technology CO. Ltd, Beijing, China. PLGA 50:50 (Mw 15-20 kDa) was obtained from the Institute of Medical Instruments (Shandong, China). ALG (200 MPa·s) and CHI (Mw 49 kDa) were purchased from Sigma Aldrich. DOX-PLGA NPs coated with CHI and ALG were prepared by the LbL self-assembly. The influencing factors for multilayer growth and the growth ...

The applicative potential of synthetic calcium phosphates, especially hydroxyapatite (HAp), has become intensely broadened in the past 10 years, from bone tissue engineering to multiple other fields of biomedicine. Previously we have shown that hydroxyapatite nanoparticles coated with chitosan-poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide (HAp/Ch-PLGA) target lungs following their intravenous administration into mice. For this purpose radioactive 125-Iodine (125I), a low energy gamma emitter, was used to develop a novel in situ method for radiolabeling of particles and investigation of their biodistribution. In this study we utilize an emulsification process and freeze drying to load the composite particles based on hydroxyapatite nanocarrier, chitosane and poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) with 17β- hydroxy-17α-picolyl-androst-5-en-3β-acetate (A), a chemotherapeutic derivative of androstane. The picolyl androstane derivatives showed high potency in the cell inhibitors of hormonedependent cancers ...

Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) based nanoparticles have gained increasing attention in delivery applications due to their capability for controlled drug release characteristics, biocompatibility, and tunable mechanical, as well as degradation, properties. However, thorough study is always required while evaluating potential toxicity of the particles from dose dumping, inconsistent release and drug-polymer interactions. In this research, we developed PLGA nanoparticles modified by chitosan (CS), a cationic and pH responsive polysaccharide that bears repetitive amine groups in its backbone. We used a model drug, diclofenac sodium (DS), a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), to study the drug loading and release characteristics. PLGA nanoparticles were synthesized by double-emulsion solvent evaporation technique. The nanoparticles were evaluated based on their particle size, surface charge, entrapment efficacy, and effect of pH in drug release profile. About 390-420 nm of average diameters
The use of poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA)-based nanocarriers presents several major challenges, including their synthetic hydrophobic surface, low transfection efficiency, short circulation half-life, and nonspecific tissue distribution. Numerous engineering strategies have been employed to overcome these problems, with lipid-based surface functionalization of PLGA nanoparticles (NPs) showing promising results in the development of PLGA-based clinical nanomedicines. Surface engineering with different lipids enhances the target specificity of the carrier and improves its physicochemical properties as well as NP-cell associations, such as cellular membrane permeability, immune responses, and long circulation half-life in vivo. This review focuses on recent advances in the lipid-based surface engineering of PLGA NPs for drug and gene delivery applications.
Multidrug-resistant breast cancers have limited and ineffective clinical treatment options. This study aimed to develop PLGA nanoparticles containing a synergistic combination of vincristine and verapamil to achieve less toxicity and enhanced efficacy on multidrug-resistant breast cancers. The 1:250 molar ratio of VCR/VRP showed strong synergism with the reversal index of approximately 130 in the multidrug-resistant MCF-7/ADR cells compared to drug-sensitive MCF-7 cells. The lyophilized nanoparticles could get dispersed quickly with the similar size distribution, zeta potential and encapsulation efficiency to the pre-lyophilized nanoparticles suspension, and maintain the synergistic in vitro release ratio of drugs.

Malignant gliomas are aggressive, highly vascularized tumors, which recur within 2 cm of the original tumor core and are rarely metastatic. Studies have shown that endogenous inhibitors, such as endostatin, PF-4, and PEX, inhibit the angiogenic process in glioma tumors leading to tumor growth inhibition (10, 12, 23-25, 28). These studies and others also emphasize the urgent need for modalities that can localize and prolong the administration of the antitumor agents to achieve long-term tumor inhibition. Implantable biodegradable polymeric devices provide a unique practical means of localizing the anticancer agents at the tumor site. The strategy of using a controlled delivery device reduces the amount of protein needed, relative to systemic administration, to achieve similar tumor inhibition. In addition, an efficient delivery of labile proteins with short half-lives may be advantageous when using such systems. To date, the efficacy of different control delivery devices for brain tumor therapy ...

The effects of double release of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and growth factor β1 (TGF-β1) from nanoparticles on the growth of bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells and their differentiation into cartilage cells were studied on PLGA scaffolds. The release was achieved by using nanoparticles of poly(lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) carrying IGF-I and TGF-β1, respectively. On tissue culture polystyrene (TCPS), TGF-β1 released from PNIPAM nanoparticles was found to have a significant effect on proliferation, while IGF-I encouraged differentiation, as shown by collagen type II deposition. The study was then conducted on macroporous (pore size 200-400μm) PLGA scaffolds. It was observed that the combination of IGF-I and TGF-β1 yielded better results in terms of collagen type II and aggrecan expression than GF-free and single GF-containing applications. It thus appears that gradual release of a combination of growth factors from nanoparticles ...

The dual extrusion electrospinning technique was used to fabricate multilayered 3D scaffolds by stacking microfibrous meshes of poly(lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) in alternate fashion to micro/nano mixed fibrous meshes of PLGA and collagen. To fabricate the multilayered scaffold, 35 wt% solution of PLGA in THF-DMF binary solvent (3:1) and 5 wt% solution of collagen in hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) with and without hydroxyapatite nanorods (nHA) were used. The dual and individual electrospinning of PLGA and collagen were carried out at flow rates of 1.0 and 0.5 mL/h, respectively, at an applied voltage of 20 kV. The density of collagen fibers in multilayered scaffolds has controlled the adhesion, proliferation, and osteogenic differentiation of MC3T3-E1 cells. The homogeneous dispersion of glutamic acid-modified hydroxyapatite nanorods (nHA-GA) in collagen solution has improved the osteogenic properties of fabricated multilayered scaffolds. The fabricated multilayered scaffolds were characterized
Development of vaccines in autoimmune diseases has received wide attention over the last decade. However, many vaccines showed limited clinical efficacy. To enhance vaccine efficacy in infectious diseases, biocompatible and biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles have gained interest as antigen delivery systems. We investigated in mice whether antigen-encapsulated PLGA (poly-lactic-co-glycolic acid), PLGA-TMC (N-trimethyl chitosan) or TMC-TPP (tri-polyphosphate) nanoparticles can also be used to modulate the immunological outcome after nasal vaccination. These three nanoparticles enhanced the antigen presentation by dendritic cells, as shown by increased in vitro and in vivo CD4(+) T-cell proliferation. However, only nasal PLGA nanoparticles were found to induce an immunoregulatory response as shown by enhanced Foxp3 expression in the nasopharynx associated lymphoid tissue and cervical lymph nodes. Nasal administration of OVA-containing PLGA particle resulted in functional suppression of an ...
Introduction: Prostate cancer remains the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in men with an estimated 241,740 new cases and 28,170 deaths expected by end of 2012. Conventional cancer treatments such as radiation therapy can be ineffective due to radiation resistance of prostate cancer cells. This resistance arises due to their increased DNA double strand break (DSB) repair ability, especially through Non-Homologous End Joining (NHEJ). In this study, we have developed biodegradable and biocompatible poly lactic-co-glycolic acid (PLGA)-based nanoparticles containing the potent radio-sensitizer NU7441 (8-dibenzothiophen-4-yl-2-morpholin-4-yl-chromen-4-one) for radiation sensitization of prostate cancer cells by inhibiting DNA-dependent protein kinase, which regulates NHEJ.. Methods: PLGA nanoparticles encapsulating NU7441 and iron oxide as an imaging and targeting agent were prepared by a standard double emulsion technique and characterized for size and surface charge. R11 peptide was ...

Historical Overview: Conn began producing a double-walled metal clarinet just a few years after the first saxophone was made in America (1888). Couesnon presented a double-walled Boehm System clarinet in a Paris Exposition in 1900. Triebert also came out with a copy of the Couesnon. Around 1910 Penzel-Mueller (NY) started making the double-walled Clari-Met line to be offered at a price of $150-$200, and was perhaps the most expensive clarinet available at the time. According to the manufacturer, the Clari-Met, made of a special alloy that was almost sterling was destined to make wooden clarinets obsolete. By the mid 1920s there was little interest in the very complicated manufacturing process to produce a clarinet that cost half as much as an automobile. Then in the late 20s Conn began making the Armored clarinet, a double-walled model filled with hard rubber. And finally Haynes started producing a double-walled sterling clarinet which is said to have caused heated debate within the company, ...
The outcome of scaffold-based stem cell transplantation remains unsatisfied due to the poor survival of transplanted cells. One of the major hurdles associated with the stem cell survival is the immune rejection, which can be effectively reduced by the use of immunosuppressant. However, ideal localized and sustained release of immunosuppressant is difficult to be realized, because it is arduous to hold the drug delivery system within scaffold for a long period of time. In the present study, the sustained release of immunosuppressant for the purpose of improving the survival of stem cells was successfully realized by a nanoparticle-anchoring hydrogel scaffold we developed. Methods: Poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles were modified with RADA16 (RNPs), a self-assembling peptide, and then anchored to a RADA16 hydrogel (RNPs + Gel). The immobilization of RNPs in hydrogel was measured in vitro and in vivo, including the Brownian motion and cumulative leakage of RNPs and the in vivo ...
The poly(orthoester) (POE)-poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (50:50) (PLGA) double-walled microspheres with 50% POE in weight were loaded with hydrophilic bovine serum albumin (BSA) and hydrophobic cyclosporin A (CyA). Most of the BSA and CyA was entrapped within the shell and core, respectively, because of the difference in their hydrophilicity. The morphologies and release mechanisms of proteins-loaded double-walled POE/PLGA microspheres were investigated. Scanning electron microscope studies revealed that the CyA-BSA-loaded double-walled POE/PLGA microspheres yielded a more porous surface and PLGA shell than those without BSA. The neat POE and PLGA yielded slow and incomplete CyA and BSA release. In contrast, nearly complete BSA and more than 95% CyA were released in a sustained manner from the double-walled POE/PLGA microspheres. Both the BSA- and CyA-BSA-loaded POE/PLGA microspheres yielded a sustained BSA release over 5 days. The CyA release pattern of the CyA-loaded double-walled POE/PLGA ...
The purpose of the current study was to prepare Methotrexate (MTX) loaded Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) Nanoparticles (NPs) and investigates their toxicity effect on human glioblastoma cells. The influence of different experimental parameters including polymer concentration, Poly Vinyl Alcohol (PVA) concentration in the external phase and drug concentration on the particle size was evaluated.
Biodegradable poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) copolymer, PLGA nanoparticles (NPs) with a surface layer of poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) triblock copolymers, Pluronics, are promising drug carrier systems. With the aim to increase the potential of targeted drug delivery the end group derivative of Pluronics was synthesized in a straightforward way to obtain Pluronic-amines. The formation of functional amine groups was confirmed by fluorescamine method and NMR analysis of their Boc-Phe-OH and Fmoc-Phe-OH conjugates. Pluronic and Pluronic-amine stabilized PLGA NPs prepared by nanoprecipitation were characterized by dynamic light scattering and zeta potential measurements. All of the systems showed high colloidal stability checked by electrolyte induced aggregation, although the presence of Pluronic-amine on the surface decreased the zeta potential in some extent. The introduction of reactive primary amine groups into the surface layer of PLGA NPs while preserving the ...

Methods: OEM was synthesized and used in ...
We have investigated the key parameters to fabricate PDLLA (Poly(DL-lactic acid)), PDLLGA (Poly(DL-lactic-co-glycolic acid) 65:35 and blends of PDLLGA 65:35 and PEG (Poly(ethylene glycol)) microspheres containing bovine serum albumin (BSA) as a model protein using the double-emulsion (water-in-oil-in-water) solvent extraction/evaporation method. The release profiles of microspheres were investigated at 22°C in order to develop controlled release devices for marine fishes in tropical area. Various factors that influence the size of microspheres, encapsulation efficiency, initial release, morphology and release profiles of microspheres, and BSA distribution within microspheres have been investigated. These factors include preparation temperature, solvent removal rate, volume ratio of oil phase to internal water phase, and polymer concentration. Microspheres fabricated at a low volume ratio of oil phase to internal water phase and a low polymer concentration tend to have a large surface area, a ...
Stroke causes extensive cellular loss that leads to a disintegration of the afflicted brain tissue. Although transplanted neural stein cells can recover some of the function lost after stroke, recovery is incomplete and restoration of lost tissue is minimal. The challenge therefore is to provide transplanted cells with matrix support in order to optimise their ability to engraft the damaged tissue. We here demonstrate that plasma polymerised allylamine (ppAAm)-treated poly(D,L-lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) scaffold particles can act as a structural support for neural stem cells injected directly through a needle into the lesion cavity using magnetic resonance imaging-derived co-ordinates. Upon implantation, the neuro-scaffolds integrate efficiently within host tissue forming a primitive neural tissue. These neuro-scaffolds could therefore be a more advanced method to enhance brain repair. This study provides a substantial step in the technology development required for the translation of ...
This study trialled the controlled delivery of growth factors within a biodegradable scaffold in a large segmental bone defect model. We hypothesised that co-delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) followed by bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) could be more effective in stimulating bone repair than the delivery of BMP-2 alone. Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA ) based microparticles were used as a delivery system to achieve a controlled release of growth factors within a medical-grade Polycaprolactone (PCL) scaffold. The scaffolds were assessed in a well-established preclinical ovine tibial segmental defect measuring 3 cm. After six months, mechanical properties and bone tissue regeneration were assessed. Mineralised bone bridging of the defect was enhanced in growth factor treated groups. The inclusion of VEGF and PDGF (with BMP-2) had no significant effect on the amount of bone regeneration at the six-month time point in comparison ...
Doxorubicin, a potent anticancer drug associated with cardiotoxicity and low oral bioavailability, was loaded into nanoparticles with a view to improve its performance. Doxorubicin loaded PLGA nanoparticles were prepared by a double emulsion method. The pH dependent stability of nanoparticles in simulated fluids was evaluated. DSC and XRD studies were carried out in order to ascertain the nature of doxorubicin in formulations in conjunction with accelerated stability studies. The in vitro release was investigated in phosphate buffer. The pharmacokinetic and toxicity studies were conducted in rats. Nanoparticles had an average size of 185 nm, with 49% entrapment at 10% w/w of polymer. The particles displayed good pH dependent stability in the pH range 1.1-7.4. DSC and XRD studies revealed the amorphous nature of doxorubicin in nanoparticles and the accelerated stability studies revealed the integrity of formulations. Initial biphasic release (20%) followed by a sustained release (80%) for 24 days ...
Pilocarpine HCI-loaded PLGA nanoparticles were prepared by emulsification solvent evaporation. Three different stabilisers, polyvinylalcohol (PVA), Carbopol and Poloxamer were used, as well as mixtures thereof. The influence of the homogenisation pressure and number of cycles on the properties of nanoparticles were studied. Particle size was shown to depend on the stabiliser used. An increase of the homogenisation pressure or the number of cycles resulted in a decrease in particle size. The zeta potential value was influenced mainly by the nature of the stabiliser. Particles stabilised with poloxamer or PVA showed a slightly negative zeta potential value, while samples stabilised with carbopol posessed a more negative zeta potential, which became less negative after homogenisation. Drug encapsulation depended strongly on the stabiliser used. The higher drug entrapment of the carbopol-stabilised particles could be explained by an electrostatic interaction between the negatively charged carboxyl ...
Many prostate cancers relapse after initial chemotherapy treatment. Combining molecular and chemotherapy together with encapsulation of drugs in nanocarriers provides effective drug delivery and toxicity reduction. We developed core shell lipid-polymer hybrid nanoparticles (CSLPHNPs) with poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) core and lipid layer containing docetaxel and clinically used inhibitor of sphingosine kinase 1 (SK1) FTY720 (fingolimod). We show for the first time that FTY720 (both free and in CSLPHNPs) re-sensitizes castrate resistant prostate cancer cells and tumors to docetaxel, allowing a four-fold reduction in effective dose. Our CSLPHNPs showed high serum stability and a long shelf life. CSLPHNPs demonstrated a steady uptake by tumor cells, sustained intracellular drug release and in vitro efficacy superior to free therapies. In a mouse model of human prostate cancer, CSLPHNPs showed excellent tumor targeting and significantly lower side effects compared to free drugs, importantly,
PHARMACOLOGY Nanonetworks as Innovative Platforms for Therapeutic Solubilization and Delivery David Michael Stevens Dissertation under the direction of Professor Eva M. Harth Solubility remains the biggest obstacle in the development of new therapeutics and is the primary cause for clinical failure of promising drugs. The high lipophilicity of many chemotherapeutics and peptides imposes a major challenge for systemic administration and drug efficacy. Recent interest of pharmaceutical companies to apply nanoformulations stems from the interest to improve solubility, specificity, and efficacy for current, off-patent, and shelved drugs rather than creating new therapies. Numerous approaches have been investigated including poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) formulations, lipid-based micelles, and pegylation of proteins, but these efforts often fall short of expectations due to rapid drug release, the use of non-degradable materials, and accumulation and toxicity in the liver. To overcome these ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The Influence of Solvent Processing on Polyester Bioabsorable Polymers. AU - Dixon, D. AU - Manson, J. PY - 2012/1/1. Y1 - 2012/1/1. N2 - Solvent-based methods are commonly employed for the production of polyester-based samples and coatings in both medical device production and research. The influence of solvent casting and subsequent drying time was studied using thermal analysis, spectroscopy and weight measurement for four grades of 50 : 50 poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) produced by using chloroform, dichloromethane, and acetone. The results demonstrate that solvent choice and PLGA molecular weight are critical factors in terms of solvent removal rate and maintaining sample integrity, respectively. The protocols widely employed result in high levels of residual solvent and a new protocol is presented together with solutions to commonly encountered problems.. AB - Solvent-based methods are commonly employed for the production of polyester-based samples and coatings in ...

Palladium catalysts have been widely adopted for organic synthesis and diverse industrial applications given their efficacy and safety, yet their biological in vivo use has been limited to date. Here we show that nanoencapsulated palladium is an effective means to target and treat disease through in vivo catalysis. Palladium nanoparticles (Pd-NPs) were created by screening different Pd compounds and then encapsulating bis[tri(2-furyl)phosphine]palladium(II) dichloride in a biocompatible poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)-b-polyethyleneglycol platform. Using mouse models of cancer, the NPs efficiently accumulated in tumours, where the Pd-NP activated different model prodrugs. Longitudinal studies confirmed that prodrug activation by Pd-NP inhibits tumour growth, extends survival in tumour-bearing mice and mitigates toxicity compared to standard doxorubicin formulations. Thus, here we demonstrate safe and efficacious in vivo catalytic activity of a Pd compound in mammals. Palladium (Pd) is a well-known

Relatively high molecular weight, fiber-forming, crystalline copolymers of lactide and glycolide are prepared in a two-stage polymerization process. In the first stage there is prepared a random copolymer of a major proportion of an optically active lactide with a minor proportion of glycolide or d,l-lactide. In the second stage, a major amount of glycolide and a minor amount of lactide monomers are admixed with the copolymer of the first stage and the polymerization resumed until there is obtained a high molecular weight addition copolymer of lactide and glycolide containing from about 50 to 75 wt percent of units derived from glycolide. The polymer is fiber-forming and useful in the preparation of absorbable surgical sutures.

Robabeh Gharaei of Leeds University (UK) said the materials of the title were being developed as nonwoven scaffolds for tissue engineering. Such scaffolds had to be highly porous 3D structures which were biocompatible, bioresorbable, biodegradable and had an appropriate surface chemistry. Examples given included naturally derived polymers such as collagen, chitosan, and elastin or synthetic polymers such as polycaprolactone, polylactic acid or polyglycolic acid and its copolymers. These could be 3D printed into the appropriate porous structure, spun into nanofibres, or even simply used as a hydrogel. Improvements promoting cell attachment, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and extracellular formation were required, and the incorporation of self-assembling peptides within the polymer was thought to be a potential solution. ...
Examples include variations of polylactic acid (PLA), polyglycolic acid (PGA), polydioxanone, and polycaprolactone. PLA has been a desirable choice because its degradation product is lactic acid, a natural constituent of the Krebs cycle. b. These polymers are resorbed at different rates. i. PLA resorbs faster than PGA. ii. Composite products may have intermediate properties. c. Resorption allows the host tissue to assume its normal role as the load-sharing capabilities of the polymer decrease. This must be balanced with the need for maintaining mechanical properties.

Interestingly, PDA-incorporated NPs showed reduced apoptosis and necrosis reaction in HaCaT cells.39. A possible explanation for the chitosan NPs high biocompatibilty could be that chitosan is much more cytotoxic in a free soluble form than when it is incorporated into NPs, due to the fact that in the case of NPs, a significant portion of the positive amino groups of chitosan are engaged in electrostatic interractions.38, 40. To confirm PLGAChi NPs efficiency in intracellular penetration, the cellular internalization of PLGAChi NPs conjugated with fluorescein was investigated by fluorescence microscopy. The results indicated significant differences in NPs uptake between the different cell lines used in this study.. Fluorescence microscopy experiments conducted after 12h and 24h of incubation revealed a rate of inglobation influenced by the cell type. DPCs did not internalize PLGAChi NPs, even at the highest concentration (200 μg/mL PLGAChi NPs) and the longest incubation time (24h) (Fig. 3). ...

Background: Mitochondria (MITO) injury including MITO permeability transition pore (mPTP) opening plays a major role in the mechanism of ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury. Intravenous administration of an inhibitor of mPTP opening, cyclosporine A, can reduce IR injury in animals and patients with acute myocardial infarction (MI), however; the power of cardioprotection by cyclosporine A is insufficient. We tested the hypothesis that nanoparticle-mediated targeting of Mdivi1, a chemical inhibitor of Drp1, to MITO enhances cardioprotection from IR injury.. Methods and Results: We formulated poly(lactic acid/glycolic acid) (PLGA) nanoparticles containing Mdivi1 (Mdivi1-NP) or FITC (FITC-NP). In neonatal rat cardiomyocytes, PLGA nanoparticles accumulated in MITO after the addition of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) that represents oxidative stress during IR (Fig.A). Treatment with Mdivi1-NP reduced H2O2-induced MITO division and cardiomyocyte death (Fig.B). This Mdivi1-NP cardioprotective effect was not seen ...
The originality of the project is the production by means of knitting of a ready-to-use, biocompatible and porous sterilisable carrier material containing two components. This material will be composed of PLGA or poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) in the substrate (ensuring the medical functionality) and of chitosan as surface layer.. The realisation of this innovating product is a scientific and technical challenge on the crossroad of biotechnology and agrarian resources. The second challenge is the maturation of the product obtained by tissue technology. From the conception till the realisation, we will start from the assumption that it is an operational prototype that is validated under pre-operative circumstances. This is a major step to have the product valorised by the industry.. The research and development action points include the development of the PLGA yarns, the chitosan coating, knitting the textile 3D-matrix and its use for bone reconstruction.. The communication action points that will ...

PLGA scaffold is coated with collagen that provides cell-recognition signals and hydrophobic properties to facilitate cell growth.
Patients with atherosclerosis experience plaque buildup in the coronary artery, reducing blood flow and increasing the likelihood of a blood clot. Balloon angioplasty and the implantation of a metal stent are physical mechanisms that have been used to treat atherosclerosis and the associated stenosis of the coronary artery with some success; however, restenosis occurs in a substantial amount of patients. Most recently, biodegradable drug eluting stents have been shown to significantly lower restenosis rates, where an implanted stent is coated with biodegradable polymer and an immunosuppressant therapeutic drug; however, many parameters have yet to be optimized in this method of treatment. This project considers a stent coated with the biodegradable polymer poly lactic-coglycolic acid (PLGA) and immunosuppressant sirolimus (also known as rapamycin), for circular and square geometries, and half and full extents of embedment. A mass transport simulation in COMSOL 5.1 Multiphysics was used to ...
