Abstract Investigating axonal myelination by Schwann cells (SCs) is crucial for understanding mechanisms underlying demyelination and remyelination, which may help gain insights into incurable disorders like neurodegenerative diseases. In this study, a gelatin-based hydrogel, gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA), was optimized to achieve the biocompatibility, porosity, mechanical stability, and degradability needed to provide high cell viability for dorsal root ganglia (DRG) neurons and SCs, and to enab...

Abstract In transdermal drug delivery applications uniform drug distribution and sustained release are of great importance to decrease the side effects. In this direction in the present research, vanillin crosslinked chitosan (CS) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) blend based matrix-type transdermal system was prepared by casting and drying of aqueous solutions for local delivery of enrofloxacin (ENR) drug. Subsequently, the properties including the morphology, chemical structure, thermal behavior, te...

Abstract Herein, we have evaluated the in vivo therapeutic efficacy and systemic toxicity profile of a synthetic anticancer compound [3,3′-((4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)methylene)bis(2-hydroxynaphthalene-1,4-dione)]. A multifunctional mesoporous silica nanoparticle (MSN) based drug delivery network was also fabricated which specifically showed targeting nature towards the cancer cell. The mesopores of silica nanoparticles were tagged with phenyl boronic acid (PBA) for targeted drug delivery into t...
Abstract Reactive oxygen species (ROS) are well-known important initiating factors required for atherosclerosis formation, which leads to endothelial dysfunction and plaque formation. Most of the existing antithrombotic therapies use ROS-responsive drug delivery systems, which have a certain therapeutic effect but cannot eliminate excess ROS. Therefore, the atherosclerosis cannot be treated from the source. Moreover, nanoparticles are easily cleared by the immune system during blood circulation,...
Abstract Both extracellular matrix (ECM) components and three-dimensional (3D) structure play important roles in the expression and maintenance of cancer stem cell (CSC) properties. Considering the excellent biophysical and biochemical properties of hydrogels, the objective of this study was to develop a 3D cell culture system based on liver ECM hydrogel (LEMH) to enhance CSC properties. Results showed that LEMH was devoid of cellular materials but contained the main components of the liver ECM....
Abstract The lack of antibacterial properties limits the application of bacterial cellulose hydrogels in wound dressings. To overcome this deficiency, silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) were introduced as antibacterial agents into a polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/bacterial cellulose (BC) solution. A freeze-thaw method promoted formation of PVA/BC/Ag hydrogels and improved their mechanical properties. The physicochemical and biological properties of this hydrogel were systematically characterized. Those resul...
