Tissue regeneration driven by immunomodulatory agents has emerged as a potential solution for repairing bone defects. However, the therapeutic benefits are compromised by disturbances in the pro- and anti-inflammatory balance. Here, using magnesium nanoparticles (MgNPs) as a template, magnesium-enriched graphene oxide nanoscrolls (MgNPs@GNSs) designed for combinational modulation of the inflammatory response are reported. First, the different effects of graphene oxide (GO) and magnesium ions (Mg...

Phototherapy, including photodynamic therapy and photothermal therapy, mainly relies on phototherapeutic agents (PAs) to produce heat or toxic reactive oxygen species (ROS) to kill tumors. It has attracted wide attention due to its merits of noninvasive properties and negligible drug resistance. However, the phototoxicity of conventional PAs is one of the main challenges for its potential clinical application. This is mainly caused by the uncontrolled distribution of PA in vivo, as well as the i...

Stem cell fate is closely intertwined with microenvironmental and endogenous cues within the body. Recapitulating this dynamic environment ex vivo can be achieved through engineered biomaterials which can respond to exogenous stimulation (including light, electrical stimulation, ultrasound, and magnetic fields) to deliver temporal and spatial cues to stem cells. These stimuli-responsive biomaterials can be integrated into scaffolds to investigate stem cell response in vitro and in vivo, and offe...

3D in vitro model systems such as spheroids and organoids provide an opportunity to extend the physiological understanding using recapitulated tissues that mimic physiological characteristics of in vivo microenvironments. Unlike 2D systems, 3D in vitro systems can bridge the gap between inadequate 2D cultures and the in vivo environments, providing novel insights on complex physiological mechanisms at various scales of organization, ranging from the cellular, tissue-, to organ-levels. To satisfy...

A nanomotor is a miniaturized device that converts energy stored in the environment into mechanical motion. The last two decades have witnessed a surge of research interests in the biomedical applications of nanomotors, but little clinical translation. To accelerate this process, targeted cancer therapy is used as an example to describe a "survive, locate, operate, and terminate" (SLOT) mission of a nanomotor, where it must 1) survive in the unfriendly in vivo environment, 2) locate its target a...

The properties of the surrounding cell environment are major determinants of cell response in 3D. However, the ability to unravel how these cues dictate the biological function in bioprinted constructs is limited by the lack of extracellular matrix (ECM)-mimetic bioinks with fully controllable properties. In this study, a multifunctional bioink that uniquely combines the independent control over the biochemical and biophysical cues that regulate cell fate with the bioorthogonal nature of thiol-n...

Cancer is still one of the most serious diseases with threats to health and life. Although some advances have been made in targeting delivery of antitumor drugs over the past number of years, there are still many problems needing to be solved, such as poor efficacy and high systemic toxicity. Micro/nanomotors capable of self-propulsion in fluid provide promising platforms for improving the efficiency of tumor delivery. Herein, the recent progress in micro/nanomotors for tumor targeting delivery ...

Cyclic dinucleotide (CDN) agonists of stimulator of interferon genes (STING) hold great therapeutic potential, but their activity is hindered by poor drug-like properties that restrict cytosolic bioavailability. Here, this challenge is addressed through the synthesis and evaluation of a novel series of PEGMA-co-DEAEMA-co-BMA copolymers with pH-responsive, membrane-destabilizing activity to enhance intracellular delivery of the CDN, cGAMP. Copolymers are synthesized with PEGMA of two different mo...

Biofluorescence in living entities is a functional process associated with information conveyance; whereas the capacity to respond to internal physiological signals is a unique property of a cell. By integrating these two biological features into materials design, a bioinspired material, namely CPS, is developed. Contrary to conventional luminescent polymeric systems whose emission comes from π-conjugated structures, this material displays clusterization-triggered emission. In the preclinical tr...

Recent studies emphasize on developing immune tolerance by an interim administration of various immunosuppressive drugs. In this study, a robust protocol is reported for local immunomodulation using a single-dose of FK506 microspheres and clodronate liposomes (mFK+CLO) in a xenogeneic model of islet transplantation. Surprisingly, the single-dose treatment with mFK+CLO induce tolerance to the islet xenograft. The recipient mice display tolerogenic dendritic cells (tDCs) with decreased antigen pre...
