Poly(e‐caprolactone) (PCL)‐incorporated bovine serum albumin/calcium alginate/hydroxyapatite nanocomposite (NC) porous scaffolds are effectively one‐pot prepared by internal gelation and freeze‐drying basing on templating oil‐in‐water high internal phase emulsions. The prepared PCL‐incorporated NC scaffolds possess promising potentials in tissue engineering application.

Nanocomposite scaffolds are studied widely due to their resemblance with the natural extracellular matrix of bone; but their use as a bone tissue engineered scaffold is clinically hampered due to low mechanical stiffness, inadequate osteoconduction, and graft associated infections. The purpose of the current study was the development of a mechanically stiff nanocomposite scaffold using biodegradable gellan and xanthan polymers reinforced with bioglass nanoparticles (nB) (Size: 20–120 nm). These ...

Developing repair strategies for osteochondral tissue presents complex challenges due to its interfacial nature and complex zonal structure, consisting of subchondral bone, intermediate calcified cartilage and the superficial cartilage regions. In this study, the long term ability of a multi-layered biomimetic collagen-based scaffold to repair osteochondral defects is investigated in a large animal model: namely critical sized lateral trochlear ridge (TR) and medial femoral condyle (MC) defects ...

The purpose of this study was to design and characterise a novel biomimetic scaffold for the repair of critical size calvarial defects. In this study, we developed a new hydroxyapatite/cellulose nanocrystals/silk fibroin (HA/CNC/SF) scaffold by mixing a solution of SF with HA and CNC nanoparticles. The scaffold was fabricated by freeze-drying. The average pore size and porosity of the HA/CNC/SF scaffolds were 110 ± 7.3 μm and 90 ± 6.2%, respectively. The thermostability and mechanical properties...

Tissue engineering scaffolds combining biominerals and natural polymers are prospective candidates for bone repair materials. In this work, biocompatible and antibacterial scaffolds were prepared by blending alginate, hydroxypropyl trimethyl ammonium chloride chitosan (HACC) and oyster shell powder (OSP) by freeze drying. SEM, FTIR, mechanical testing and BET surface area analysis were applied to characterize the prepared scaffolds. The swelling behavior, biomineralization, in vitro biodegradati...

In this study, we develop a facile one-pot approach to the fabrication of poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) microsphere-incorporated calcium alginate (ALG-Ca)/hydroxyapatite (HAp) porous scaffolds based on HAp nanoparticle-stabilized oil-in-water Pickering emulsion templates, which contain alginate in the aqueous phase and PLLA in the oil phase. The emulsion aqueous phase is solidified by in situ gelation of alginate with Ca2+ released from HAp by decreasing pH with slow hydrolysis of d-gluconic acid δ...

Electrospinning is a well-recognized technique for producing nanostructured fibers capable of supporting cell adhesion and further proliferation. Here, we prepared a novel electrospun blend from poly(butylene adipate-co-terephthalate) (PBAT), a non-conductive and biodegradable polymer, and a conductive polymer, namely polypyrrole (PPy). Therefore, the goal was to create electrically conductive nanoscaffolds for tissue engineering applications. Furthermore, to improve the scaffold biomimetic feat...

Thanks to their active promotion of bone formation, bioactive glasses (BG) offer unique properties for bone regeneration, but their brittleness prevents them from being used in a wide range of applications. Combining BG with polymers into a true hybrid system is therefore an ideal solution to associate toughness from the polymer and stimulation of bone mineralization from the glass. In this work, we report the synthesis and characterization of hybrid scaffolds based on SiO2–CaO bioactive glass a...

Stem cell based therapies employ engraftment or systemic administration methods for the delivery of stem cells into the target tissues to enhance their regenerative potential. However, majority of the stem cells were found to migrate away from the target site soon after the transplantation, which directly hinders their clinical efficacy, in particular while treating cartilage defects. Therefore, the present study was designed to explore the feasibility and efficacy of an alginate/polyacrylamide ...

Collagen is the main structural protein of most hard and soft tissues in animals and the human body, which plays an important role in maintaining the biological and structural integrity of the extracellular matrix (ECM) and provides physical support to tissues. Collagen can be extracted and purified from a variety of sources and offers low immunogenicity, a porous structure, good permeability, biocompatibility and biodegradability. Collagen scaffolds have been widely used in tissue engineering d...

In this study, flavour tea tree oil (TTO)-loaded antibacterial microcapsules were developed based on the complex coacervation of sodium alginate (SA) and a quaternary ammonium salt of chitosan (HACC). The optimum preparation conditions of the TTO-loaded microcapsules determined using the response surface methodology (RSM) were as follows: a weight ratio of the core to wall material (core-wall ratio) of 1 : 1, a pH value of 6.0 and a mass concentration of CaCl2 solution of 0.6 w/v%, at which the ...

High internal phase emulsions (HIPEs), with densely packed droplets of internal phase and monomers dispersed in the continuous phase, are now an established medium for porous polymer preparation (polyHIPEs). The ability to influence the pore size and interconnectivity, together with the process scalability and a wide spectrum of possible chemistries are important advantages of polyHIPEs. In this review, the focus on the biomedical applications of polyHIPEs is emphasised, in particular the applic...

Abstract A typical description of interpenetrating polymer networks (IPN) can be surprisingly simple, systems that consist of two crosslinked polymers networks that are physically entangled but not chemically linked. That simplistic description, however, successfully encompasses a wide range of synthesis processes and macromolecular architectures that can include “semi-IPN” (IPN-like systems containing only one crosslinked polymer) and interconnected polymer networks (IPN-like systems that also ...

Tissue engineering (TE) aims to regenerate critical size defects, which cannot heal naturally, by using highly porous matrices called TE scaffolds made of biocompatible and biodegradable materials. There are various manufacturing techniques commonly used to fabricate TE scaffolds. However, in most cases, they do not provide materials with a highly interconnected pore design. Thus, emulsion templating is a promising and convenient route for the fabrication of matrices with up to 99% porosity and ...

Abstract Cartilage tissue engineering has become the trend of cartilage defect repair owing to the engineered biomimetic tissue that can mimic the structural, biological and functional characteristics of natural cartilage. Biomaterials with high biocompatibility and regeneration capacity are expected to be used in cartilage tissue engineering.

Emulsion templating presently extends far beyond the original hydrophobic porous polymers that were synthesized within surfactant-stabilized water-in-oil high internal phase emulsions (HIPEs) by using free radical polymerization. This Perspective presents the extraordinary versatility of emulsion templating that has emerged with the growing numbers of HIPE systems, HIPE stabilization strategies, monomers, polymerization chemistries, multicomponent materials, and surface functionalities. Emulsion...

Abstract Emulsion templating is an emerging route for the production of highly porous scaffolds (PolyHIPEs) with interconnected porosity. Polycaprolactone (PCL) is one of the most extensively used synthetic, bioresorbable polymer for scaffold materials for both hard and soft tissues. PolyHIPEs have previously been shown to be challenging to formulate from PCL due to the high viscosity of the polymer, which limits the efficient mixing of the two phases of the emulsion. Herein, we present the deve...

Polystyrene-based polyHIPE (polymerized high internal phase emulsion) materials were prepared by the copolymerization of styrene and divinylbenzene in the continuous phase of a HIPE. The resultant polyHIPE materials were found to have an open-cellular morphology and high porosity, and the polyHIPE structure could be well adjusted by varying the water/oil (W/O) ratio and the amount of emulsifier in the HIPE. Cell culture results showed that the resultant polyHIPE materials, which exhibited larger...
