Abstract
Abstract The aim of the present work was the development of a powder formulation for the combined delivery of platelet lysate and of a model antibiotic drug, vancomycin hydrochloride (VCM), in chronic skin ulcers. Calcium alginate particles were prepared by freeze-drying beads obtained by ionic gelation method. The experimental conditions adopted permitted the complete loading of VCM and of PDGF AB, the growth factor chosen as representative of those contained in PL. Such particles where able to absorb PBS (mimicking wound exudate), to form a gel and to modulate the release of VCM and of PDGF AB. They are characterized by enhancement properties of human fibroblast proliferation due to PL presence. In particular, PL, when loaded in alginate particles, was able not only to increase the number of viable cells, but also the number of cells in proliferative phase. Such properties were comparable to those of fresh PL indicating the capability of calcium alginate particles to load PL bioactive substances without altering their activity. The formulation developed is characterized by an easier and a less painful administration with respect to traditional gauzes and semisolid preparations and permits the loading in the same dosage form of active substances of different nature avoiding eventual incompatibility problems.

There are still so-called unmet needs in the treatment of epithelial and cutaneous lesions. Mucositis, ocular lesions, chronic skin wounds represent typical examples. These pathologies do not yet afford a satisfactory treatment. In particular chronic wounds represent a major health care burden, likely to increase as the population ages. Healing of epithelial and cutaneous lesions progresses through a complex cascade of events starting with the secretion in the local environment of a pool of grow...

Abstract Corneal lesions cause significant pain and visual impairment and, in many cases, are unresponsive to conventional treatments. Platelet lysate (PL) is an haemoderivative rich in growth factors (GFs) that are released by platelets after freeze-thawing destruction of platelet rich plasma (PRP). The aim of the present work was to develop thermosensitive and mucoadhesive eyedrops to maintain and prolong the contact of platelet lysate (PL) with cornea ulcers. A sterile vehicle based on chondr...

Oral mucositis is an inflammatory disease of the mucosa lining oral cavity which leads to atrophy of the epithelium and to its ulceration to form chronic lesions. Many studies, both in vitro and in vivo, have disclosed the effectiveness of growth factors derived from platelets to enhance cell proliferation, differentiation, chemotaxis, angiogenesis and extracellular matrix synthesis involved in the healing of tissues. Despite potential usefulness of growth factors, animalderived or genetically e...

Optimal treatment of oral mucositis (OM) due to graft versus host disease (GvHD) is currently not available. Platelet-derived growth factors (PDGFs) have high capability for tissue healing and may play a role in repairing the mucosal barrier. The aim of the present work was to develop a mucoadhesive formulation to administer platelet lysate to oral cavity prolonging contact time of platelet lysate with oral mucosa. The mucoadhesive formulation was characterized for in vitro properties (PDGF-AB c...

Objectives Growth factors contained in platelet α-granules initiate and modulate tissue repair and are proposed for the treatment of soft and hard-tissue surgical conditions and in the management of non-healing wounds. Platelet lysate is a hemoderivative obtained from platelet-rich plasma and is capable of releasing a pool of growth factors. Many medical and surgical techniques have been proposed for the treatment of corneal lesions; management of these conditions remains problematic and healing...

The topical use of platelet concentrates is recent and its efficiency remains controversial. Several techniques for platelet concentrates are available; however, their applications have been confusing because each method leads to a different product with different biology and potential uses. Here, we present classification of the different platelet concentrates into four categories, depending on their leucocyte and fibrin content: pure platelet-rich plasma (P-PRP), such as cell separator PRP, Vi...

: Chronic wounds are the result of alterations in the complex series of events of physiological wound healing. In particular, the prolonged inflammation results in increased protease activity, in the degradation of extracellular matrix (ECM) and of growth factors (GFs). The relevance of platelet GFs in maintaining and restoring the complex equilibrium of different moments in wound healing is well recognized. Moreover, the observed decrease of their levels in chronic wounds suggested a possible t...

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), an autologous blood derived product is a concentrated mix of multiple growth factors and cytokines. Direct injections of PRP are clinically used for treatment of various musculoskeletal disorders and in wound healing. However, PRP therapy has met with limited clinical success possibly due to unpredictable and premature bolus delivery of PRP growth factors. The objective of this study was to predictably control the bioavailability of PRP growth factors using a hydrolyt...

Abstract Alginate beads containing the polar lipid monoolein were developed as a strategy to manage wet wounds by providing improved uptake of excess exudate while releasing adenosine locally for promotion of healing. To obtain monoolein-containing beads, the lipid was mixed with almond oil (2:1 w/w), and emulsified within the alginate aqueous dispersion, followed by ionotropic gelation in CaCl 2 solution. Compared to alginate-only, monoolein-alginate systems were 1.44-fold larger, their swellin...
