Abstract
Polycaprolactone (PCL) is a widely accepted synthetic biodegradable polymer for tissue engineering, however its use in hard tissue engineering is limited because of its inadequate mechanical strength and low bioactivity. In this study, we used halloysite nanoclay (NC) as an inorganic filler material to prepare PCL/NC fibrous scaffolds via electrospinning technique after intercalating NC within PCL by solution intercalation method. The obtained nanofibrous mat was found to be mechanically superior to PCL fibrous scaffolds. These scaffolds allowed greater protein adsorption and enhanced mineralization when incubated in simulated body fluid. Moreover, our results indicated that human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) seeded on these scaffolds were viable and could proliferate faster than in PCL scaffolds as confirmed by fluorescence and scanning electron microscopic observations. Further, osteogenic differentiation of hMSCs on nanoclay embedded scaffolds was demonstrated by an increase in alkaline phosphatase activity when compared to PCL scaffold without nanoclay. All of these results suggest the potential of PCL/NC scaffolds for bone tissue engineering.

In this work, experiments to produce a series of nanocomposites based on natural chitosan and nano-clay (MMT) were conducted. Commercially available montmorillonite (MMT) was used as a nanofiller. CS-MMT nanocomposites were prepared using the casting method. Thin nanocomposite foils were neutralized in NaOH solution, then the nanocomposite foils were soaked in simulated body fluid (SBF). Kinetics of crystallization of the apatite structure was observed using PIXE, FTIR-ATR and SEM/EDS techniques...

: Bone tissue engineering is an interdisciplinary field which is emerged for the development of viable substitutes that restore and maintain the function of human bone tissues. The success of bone tissue engineering depends on designing of the scaffolds. The polymer-based composite scaffolds containing micro- and nano-structures could provide a platform influencing osteoblastic cell adhesion, spreading, proliferation, and differentiation. Osteoblasts may adhere strongly to the nano-structures th...

Fibers are a continuous material structure that have an extremely high ratio of length to width, and are particularly suitable for fabrication into biomaterial scaffolds for tissue engineering since fibrous structures can morphologically resemble extracellular matrix components in tissues. In addition, fibers can be collected and processed into complex fibrous networks using conventional textile techniques, such as knitting, weaving, or braiding, to create three-dimensional (3D) structures with ...

Abstract Nanocomposites have emerged in the last two decades as an efficient strategy to upgrade the structural and functional properties of synthetic polymers. Aliphatic polyesters as polylactide (PLA), poly(glycolides) (PGA), poly(蓻-caprolactone) (PCL) have attracted wide attention for their biodegradability and biocompatibility in the human body. A logic consequence has been the introduction of organic and inorganic nanofillers into biodegradable polymers to produce nanocomposites based on hy...

Regenerative medicine is the process of creating functional tissue with the aid of stem cells, to repair loss of organ function. Possible targets for regenerative medicine include orthopaedic, cardiac, hepatic, pancreatic and central nervous system (CNS) applications. Umbilical cord blood (CB) has established itself as a legitimate source for haematopoietic stem cell transplantation. It is also considered an accessible and less immunogenic source for mesenchymal, unrestricted somatic and for oth...

In this work, the potential of silicate nanotubes of the naturally occurring mineral halloysite as filler for polyamide 6 (PA 6) nanocomposites is evaluated. Several PA 6/halloysite composites with 0 wt% to 30 wt % filler loading using two different grades of PA 6 were prepared. In order to elucidate the influence of molecular weight on the properties of the nanocomposites, mechanical resp. rheological experiments (i) below the glass transition temperature Tg of PA 6, (ii) between Tg and the mel...

Halloysite is aluminosilicate clay with hollow tubular structure of 50 nm external diameter and 15 nm diameter lumen. Halloysite biocompatibility study is important for its potential applications in polymer composites, bone implants, controlled drug delivery, and for protective coating (e.g., anticorrosion or antimolding). Halloysite nanotubes were added to different cell cultures for toxicity tests. Its fluorescence functionalization by aminopropyltriethosilane (APTES) and with fluorescently la...

Nanoclay-reinforced biomaterials have sparked a new avenue in advanced healthcare materials that can potentially revolutionize treatment of musculoskeletal defects. Native tissues display many important chemical, mechanical, biological, and physical properties that engineered biomaterials need to mimic for optimal tissue integration and regeneration. However, it is time-consuming and difficult to endow such combinatorial properties on materials via feasible and nontoxic procedures. Fortunately, ...

The field of bone tissue engineering (BTE) focuses on the repair of bone defects that are too large to be restored by the natural healing process. To that purpose, synthetic materials mimicking the natural bone extracellular matrix (ECM) are widely studied and many combinations of compositions and architectures are possible. In particular, the electrospinning process can reproduce the fibrillar structure of bone ECM by stretching a viscoelastic solution under an electrical field. With this metho...
