The boosting exploitation of graphene oxide (GO) increases exposure risk to human beings. However, as primary defender in the first immune line, neutrophils' mechanism of defensive behavior towards GO remains unclear. Herein, we discover that neutrophils recognize and defensively degrade GO in a lateral dimension dependent manner. The micrometer-sized GO (mGO) induces NETosis by releasing neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs), while nanometer-sized GO (nGO) elicits neutrophil degranulation. The ...

The three-dimensional bioprinting technologies have attracted increasing attention due to their flexibility in producing architecturally relevant tissue constructs. Here, we present an enabling vertical embedded extrusion bioprinting strategy using uniaxial or coaxial nozzles, which allows formation of vertical structures of homogeneous or heterogeneous properties in nature. By adjusting the bioprinting parameters, the characteristics of the bioprinted vertical patterns could be precisely contro...

Protein based therapeutics have the potential to treat a variety of diseases, however, safe and effective methods for delivering them into cells need to be developed before their clinical potential can be realized. Peptide fusions have great potential for improving intracellular delivery of proteins. However, very few peptides have been identified that can increase the intracellular delivery of proteins, and new peptides that can enhance intracellular protein delivery are greatly needed. In this...

Macrophages settle in heterogeneous microenvironments consisting of soluble or fixed biochemical components and biophysical clues rendered by other cells and extracellular matrices. It is well known that chemical stimuli direct macrophage behavior; however, the contributions of viscosity, which increase in inflammatory tissues but not in tumors, are ignored in related immune responses including effective activation and timely attenuation. This paper demonstrates that transient lipopolysaccharide...

Quantitative drug release is important for improving therapeutic efficiency and avoiding side effects. While using long-term delivery system for repeated therapy, it is indispensable but challenging to accurately control the drug dosing. Herein, a photocleavable prodrug-loaded hydrogel is proposed for near infrared (NIR) light-triggered quantitative pulsed drug release. IR783, a commercially available NIR fluorescent dye, is conjugated with methyl honokiol (mHNK) to give photocleavable IR783-mHN...

With an exponential rise in antimicrobial resistance and stagnant antibiotic development pipeline, there is, more than ever, a crucial need to optimise current infection therapy approaches. One of the most important stage in this process requires rapid and effective identification of pathogenic bacteria responsible for diseases. Current gold standard techniques of bacterial detection include culture methods, polymerase chain reactions, and immunoassays. However, their use is fraught with downsid...

Multidrug resistance infections have plagued the healthcare sector over the past few decades with limited treatment options. To overcome this problem, we synthesized a series of novel guanidinium-functionalized polypeptides. Specifically, poly(ʟ-lysine) (PLL) with different lengths were first synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of NCA followed by functionalization with a guanidinium-functional group to obtain guanidinium-functionalized PLL (PLL-Gua). To study the effect of hydrophobicity ...

Ferroptosis could activate immune response via inducing tumor cells immunogenic cell death (ICD), and anti-tumor immunity in turn boosts the efficacy of ferroptosis by excreting interferon gamma (IFN-γ), which shows a promising combo for synergistically amplified tumor treatment. However, their combination is strictly limited by the complexity of tumor microenvironment, including poor ferroptosis response and immunosuppressive factors in tumor. Herein, a metal-phenolic networks (MPNs) nanoplatfo...

Microgels are crosslinked polymer networks of finite dimensions in the range of 10 nm to 100 μm. Water-swollen microgels are inherently biocompatible and therefore of interest for biomedical applications. They can be modified chemically or biologically, priming microgels also for advanced clinical applications. Depending on their intended use, microgels require different mechanical and structural properties, which can be engineered and tuned on demand by altering the biochemical composition, cro...

The delivery of nitric oxide (NO)-an intrinsic cellular signaling molecule-is promising for disease treatment, in particular to vascular diseases, due to its endothelial-derived inherent nature. The limited diffusion distance of labile NO prompts researchers to develop various carriers and targeting methods for specific sites. In contrast to the apoptotic effect of NO, such as anticancer, delivering low NO concentration at the desired targeting area is still intricate in a physiological environm...
