Non‑small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) metastasis commonly occurs in bone, which often results in pathological fractures. Sustained phosphoinositide‑3‑kinase (PI3K) signalling promotes the growth of PI3K‑dependent NSCLC and elevates osteoclastogenic potential. The present study investigated the effects of a PI3K inhibitor on NSCLC growth in bone and osteoclast formation, and aimed to determine whether it could control symptoms associated with bone metastasis. A bone metastasis xenograft model was established by implanting NCI‑H460‑luc2 lung cancer cells, which contain a phosphatidylinositol‑​4,5‑bisphosphate 3‑kinase catalytic subunit α mutation, into the right tibiae of mice...

Dual-targeted nanoparticles are gaining increasing importance as a more effective anticancer strategy by attacking double key sites of tumor cells, especially in chemo-photodynamic therapy. To retain the nuclei inhibition effect and enhance DOX-induced apoptosis by mitochondrial pathways simultaneously, we synthesized the novel nanocarrier (HKH) based on hollow carbon nitride nanosphere (HCNS) modified with hyaluronic acid (HA) and the mitochondrial localizing peptide D[KLAKLAK]2 (KLA). DOX-loaded HKH nanoparticles (HKHD) showed satisfactory drug loading efficiency, excellent solubility and very low hemolytic effect...

OBJECTIVE: Bone tissue engineering was introduced in 1995 and provides a new way to reconstruct bone and repair bone defects. However, the design and fabrication of suitable bionic bone scaffolds are still challenging, and the ideal scaffolds in bone tissue engineering should have a three-dimensional porous network, good biocompatibility, excellent biodegradability and so on. The purpose of our research was to investigate whether a bioplasticpoly3-hydroxybutyrate4-hydroxybutyrate (P34HB) electrospun fibre scaffold is conducive to the repair of bone defects, and whether it is a potential scaffold for bone tissue engineering...

Abstract Background/purpose: The surface properties, such as hydrophilicity and functional OH groups, play an important role in bone fixation in vivo . In our previous study, the plasma treatments of large grit and acid etching (SLA) method produce functional OH groups on the rough surface. There is no report in discussing the integration between basic Ti-OH groups and bone-to-implant contact (BIC). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of the functional OH groups on the rough surface both in vitro and in vivo ...

Lung cancer is the foremost cause of cancer related deaths in the U.S. It is a heterogeneous disease composed of genetically and phenotypically distinct tumor cells surrounded by heterotypic cells and extracellular matrix dynamically interacting with the tumor cells. Research in lung cancer is often restricted to patient-derived tumor specimens, in vitro cell cultures and limited animal models, which fail to capture the cellular or microenvironment heterogeneity of the tumor. Therefore, our knowledge is primarily focused on cancer-cell autonomous aberrations...

Pregnancy critically depends on the transformation of the human endometrium into a decidual matrix that controls embryo implantation and placenta formation, a process driven foremost by differentiation and polarization of endometrial stromal cells into mature and senescent decidual cells. Perturbations in the decidual process underpin a spectrum of prevalent reproductive disorders, including implantation failure and early pregnancy loss, emphasizing the need for new therapeutic interventions. Resveratrol is a naturally occurring polyphenol, widely used for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties...

Laser melting deposition is a 3D printing method usually studied for the manufacturing of machine parts in the industry. However, for the medical sector, although feasible, applications and actual products taking advantage of this technique are only scarcely reported. Therefore, in this study, Ti6Al4V orthopedic implants in the form of plates were 3D printed by laser melting deposition. Tuning of the laser power, scanning speed and powder feed rate was conducted, in order to obtain a continuous deposition after a single laser pass and to diminish unwanted blown powder, stuck in the vicinity of the printed elements...

Regenerative medicine treatments for severe skeletal muscle injuries are limited, resulting in persistent functional deficits. Clinical options include neglecting the wound with the expectation that fibrosis will develop, or using an autologous muscle graft with minimal functional improvement. A regenerative matrix can be used, but muscle fiber development on these matrices remains a challenge in vivo. Here, we explored the fundamental mechanisms that mediate cell-substrate signaling and its effect on cell-cell communication during myoblast fusion and tube formation in order to improve outcomes following implantation of matrices used to stimulate muscle regeneration...

Parylene-C is a frequently used polymeric thinfilm coating in medical applications and is known for its excellent biocompatibility and flexible deposition process. However, its use in long-term implants is limited due to its poor adhesion to metals in liquid environments. In this work we present a strategy to anchor Parylene-C to medical grade titanium (Ti) by means of nanostructuring the Ti substrates surface prior to Parylene coating. We observe that, after aging in physiological salt solution for 3 days, Parylene coating lose their adhesion to bare titanium surfaces...

Antibiotic resistance is becoming a global scourge with 700,000 deaths each year and could cause up to 10 million deaths by 2050. As an example, Staphylococcus epidermidis has emerged as a causative agent of infections often associated with implanted medical devices. S. epidermidis can form biofilms, which contribute to its pathogenicity when present in intravascular devices. These staphylococci, embedded in the biofilm matrix, are resistant to methicillin, which had long been the recommended therapy and which has nowadays been replaced by less toxic and more stable therapeutic agents...

Bone marrow transplantation is a treatment used for hematologic and non-hematologic disorders. A theory suggests that proliferation of cells in non-body condition helps to increase the efficiency of bone marrow transplant. There are different ways for proliferation of stem cells, in which, most studies have focused on stem cell culture in body-like conditions. The use of amniotic fluid as a rich resource of growth factors is developing in repair of tissues cornea. With regards to this condition, we discuss about the influence of amniotic fluid in proliferation and implantation of blood stem cells...

The possibility of composite nanofibers being able to regenerate bone is an attractive proposition. Adenosine, which occurs naturally in humans, has been shown to promote the osteogenic differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) and osteoprogenitor cells. In this study, electrospun nanofibers of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate- co -3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHBV) doped with adenosine were demonstrated to exhibit excellent capacity for bone regeneration, after optimization of the electrospinning process. The biomechanical properties, hydrophilicity, biocompatibility, cellular performance of the nanofibers and adenosine release profile from the composite nanofibers were evaluated...
