Insufficient angiogenesis remains a major hurdle in current bone tissue engineering strategies. An extensive body of work has focused on the use of angiogenic factors or endothelial progenitor cells. However, these approaches are inherently complex, in terms of regulatory and methodologic implementation, and present a high cost. We have recently demonstrate the potential of electrospun poly(lactic acid) (PLA) fiber-based membranes, containing calcium phosphate (CaP) ormoglass particles, to elicit angiogenesis in vivo, in a subcutaneous model in mice...

Three different heterologous substitutes for bone regeneration, manufactured with equine-derived cortical powder (CP), cancellous chips (CC) and demineralized bone matrix granules (DBM), were compared in in vitro and in vivo settings. We tested: a commercially available bone paste (Osteoplant-Activagen™, consisting of aqueous collagenous carrier, CP, DBM; named A); a second-generation injectable paste (20 kDa polyethylene glycol/hydroxypropyl-methyl cellulose-based hydrogel, CP, DBM; B); a pre-formed bone filler (400 kDa polyethylene oxide/hydroxypropyl-methyl cellulose-based hydrogel, CP, CC, DBM; C)...

In this work, we fabricated injectable bone substitutes modified with the addition of bioactive glass powders synthesized via ultrasonic energy-assisted hydrothermal method to the calcium phosphate-based bone cement to improve its biocompatibility. The injectable bone substitutes was initially composed of a powder component (tetracalcium phosphate, dicalcium phosphate dihydrate and calcium sulfate dehydrate) and a liquid component (citric acid, chitosan and hydroxyl-propyl-methyl-cellulose) upon which various concentrations of bioactive glass were added: 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%...

An injectable composite silanized hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose/biphasic calcium phosphate (Si-HPMC/BCP) has been investigated in humans with promising results. The aim of this study was to evaluate his efficacy for treating periodontal defects (canine fenestration and premolar furcation) in dog models. At 3 months, we observed that bone formation around BCP particles in furcation model is more discernible but not statistically significant in defects filled with Si-HPMC/BCP compared to healing in control...

Calcium phosphate bioceramic granules associated with hydrosoluble polymers were developed as bone substitutes for various maxillofacial and orthopaedic applications. These injectable bone substitutes, support and regenerate bone tissue and resorb after implantation. The efficiency of these multiphasic materials is due to the osteogenic and osteoconductive properties of the microporous biphasic calcium phosphate. The associated hydrosoluble polymers are considered as carriers in order to achieve the rheological properties of injectable bone substitutes (IBS)...

Hierarchically 2D/3D mesoporous-macroporous bioactive glasses (MMBG) with good molding capabilities and compressive modulus were synthesized by sol-gel method and evaporation-induced self-assembly process in the presence of both nonionic triblock copolymers, EO(70)PO(20)EO(70) (P123) or EO(100)PO(65)EO(100) (F127), templates and methyl cellulose template. P123 or F127 acts as both a template, inducing the formation of mesopore, and an effective dispersant of MC, which produces macropores. In vitro bioactivity studies were carried out in simulated body fluid and showed superior bone-forming bioactivities of hierarchical MMBG...

Chinese practitioners have employed the use of traditional Chinese medicine as an anti-cancer agent since the ancient period. Different combinations have been formulated for various purposes. Some have been claimed for post-chemotherapy use but their direct actions on cancer cells may not be significantly reported. In the present study, we have tested the possible anti-leukemia potential of a combination regimen including crocodile egg extract, wild radix ginseng and natural Ganoderma lucidum (CGG extract) on acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in vitro...

The effective microorganism fermentation extract (EM-X, the first generation) was claimed to possess strong anti-oxidation property. On the other hand, we have shown that the second generation of the effective microorganism fermentation extract (EM-X2) possessed growth inhibition on human cancer cells involving MDA-MB231 breast cancer and K-562 chronic myelogenous leukaemia cells. Elevation of super oxide dismutase activity from EM-X2 treated cancer cell extract was observed. However, the possible anti-cancer activity of the first generation of the EM-X was not reported...

AIM: To evaluate whether bone formation under Teflon capsules may be enhanced by concomitant implantation of recombinant human platelet-derived growth factor-BB/insulin-like growth factor-I (rhPDGF-BB/IGF-I) incorporated into a methyl cellulose gel. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifty-five male 6-month-old albino rats of the Wistar strain were used in the study. The lateral aspect of the mandibular ramus was exposed on both sides of the jaw. In 70 sites, the periosteum was removed from the ramus, leaving the bone denuded, while in 35 sites, it was preserved...

Benzyl acetate is used as a flavoring agent in foods, as a fragrance in soaps and perfumes, as a solvent for cellulose acetate and nitrate, and as a component of printing inks and varnish removers. The NTP previously studied the toxicology and carcinogenicity of this chemical in F344/N rats and B6C3F1 mice using the gavage route of administration and corn oil as a vehicle. Benzyl acetate increased the incidences of pancreatic acinar cell adenomas in male rats and the incidences of hepatocellular adenomas and forestomach neoplasms in male and female mice...

BACKGROUND: Many different bone substitutes, such as autografts, allografts or synthetic biomaterials have been proposed to restore alveolar bone loss and support efficient placement of dental implants. This experimental study evaluated the osteoconductive properties of an injectable bone substitute (IBS) composed of a polymeric carrier and a calcium phosphate mineral phase, used to fill mandibular and maxillary canine extraction sockets. METHODS: The polymer was a cellulose derivative (methyl-hydroxy-propyl-cellulose, MHPC), and the mineral phase consisted of granules of biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) ceramics 200 to 500 microm in diameter...

The efficacy of local delivery of recombinant human transforming growth factor-beta 1 (rhTGF-beta 1) to promote bone regeneration, with or without cellular contribution from the periosteum, was evaluated in transosseous defects. Implantation of rhTGF-beta 1 into 5 mm in diameter "critical size defects" in the rat mandible resulted in a dose-dependent (0.1-20 micrograms/defect) bone bridging at both 12 and 24 days, independent of the type of delivery system [3% methyl cellulose gel, porous CaCO3 particles, or poly(lactide-co-glycolide) beads]...

Media conditioned by normal murine bone marrow cells contain an inhibitor of haemopoietic spleen colony-forming cell proliferation that is concentrated in a nominal 50-100K fraction. Media conditioned by regenerating marrow cells contain a proliferation-stimulatory activity that is concentrated in a nominal 30-50K fraction. Cell separation experiments demonstrated that the activities are produced by adherent, phagocytic, radioresistant, Thy 1.2- Fc+, F4/80+ cells. Cultured macrophages, obtained from long-term marrow cultures or derived from progenitor cells in methyl cellulose cultures are also capable of producing inhibitory and stimulatory activities...
