Abstract
Abstract Many cell delivery matrices have been developed due to the low transplantation efficiency of cell therapy. In the present study, thermosensitive hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBC) hydrogels were prepared with different formulations’ solvent (Dulbecco’s modified eagle’s medium/phosphate buffered saline [DMEM/PBS], 0:100, 30:70, 50:50, 70:30, 100:0 [v/v]). Their gelation temperature was raised with DMEM ratio increase (from 9.5 °C to 20.9 °C). Pore sizes of HBC hydrogels treated with high ionic strength solutions became smaller. HUVECs cultured with HBC hydrogels exhibited proliferation in high DMEM ratio groups, and the optimal solvent formulation was DMEM/PBS 70:30 (v/v). Upon exposure to PBS, HUVECs encapsulated in HBC hydrogels could survive better than that when seeded on the surface of HBC hydrogels. These results demonstrated that HBC hydrogel could be a potential cell delivery matrix for cell therapy applications, especially when DMEM proportion in solvent formulations was higher than 50% (DMEM/PBS > 50:50 [v/v]).

Chitosan, the linear co-polymer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) and glucosamine (GlcN) residues, is linked via s-1,4-glycosidic bonds. Naturally, chitosan occurs in the cell walls of some fungi, but today’s commercial production is by partial chemical de-acetylation of chitin which is extracted from shrimp shell or squid pen wastes. As the only polycationic biopolymer, chitosan has a number of intriguing physico-chemical properties in aqueous solution such as spontaneous formation of nanoparticl...

Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is a highly incapacitating condition for which there is still no cure. Current clinical approaches are mainly based on palliative care, so there is a need to find possible treatments to SCI. Cellular transplantation is regarded with great expectation due to the therapeutic potential of cells such as Adipose tissue-derived Stromal/Stem Cells (ASCs) or Olfactory Ensheathing Cells (OECs). Both are accessible sources and present positive paracrine and cell-to-cell interactio...

Abstract Contact inhibition keeps cell proliferation in check and serves as a built-in protection against cancer development by arresting cell division upon cell-cell contact. Yet the complete mechanism behind this anti-cancer process remains largely unclear. Here we present SIRT1 as a novel regulator of contact inhibition. SIRT1 performs a wide variety of functions in biological processes, but its involvement in contact inhibition has not been explored to date. We used NIH3T3 cells, which are s...

Cell therapy is a promising strategy to regenerate cardiac tissue for myocardial infarction. Injectable hydrogels with conductivity and self-healing ability are highly desirable as cell delivery vehicles for cardiac regeneration. Here, we developed self-healable conductive injectable hydrogels based on chitosan-graft-aniline tetramer (CS-AT) and dibenzaldehyde-terminated poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG-DA) as cell delivery vehicles for myocardial infarction. Self-healed electroactive hydrogels were o...

Abstract Parkinson׳s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, whose cardinal pathology is the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra. Current treatments for PD have side effects in the long term and do not halt disease progression or regenerate dopaminergic cell loss. Attempts to compensate neuronal cell loss by transplantation of dopamine-producing cells started more than 30 years ago, leading to several clinical trials. These trials showed safety and variable efficacy among ...

Transplantation of pluripotent stem cells and their differentiated progeny has the potential to preserve or regenerate functional pathways and improve function after central nervous system injury. However, their utility has been hampered by poor survival and the potential to form tumors. Peptide-modified biomaterials influence cell adhesion, survival and differentiation in vitro, but their effectiveness in vivo remains uncertain. We synthesized a peptide-modified, minimally invasive, injectable ...

Current hyaluronic acid (HA) hydrogel systems often cause cytotoxicity to encapsulated cells and lack the adhesive property required for effective localization of transplanted cells in vivo. In addition, the injection of hydrogel into certain organs (e.g., liver, heart) induces tissue damage and hemorrhage. In this study, we describe a bioinspired, tissue-adhesive hydrogel that overcomes the limitations of current HA hydrogels through its improved biocompatibility and potential for minimally inv...

Today, with the advances in technology and science, more advanced drug delivery formulations are required. One of these new systems is an intelligent hydrogel. These systems are affected by the environment or conditions that become a gel, stay in the circumstance for a certain period, and slowly release the drug. As an advantage, only a lower dose of the drug is required, and it provides less toxicity and minor damage to other tissues. Hydrogels are of different types, including temperature-sens...

Abstract Hydroxybutyl chitosan (HBC) with different degree of substitution (DS) were prepared using a homogeneous reaction system (KOH/urea), which could achieve temperature-dependent reversible morphological transition in aqueous solution. During hydrophobic assembly, amino groups on HBC chains exposed on the surface of nanoparticles formed a poly-cationic structure. The structure of HBCs was characterized by FTIR, 13C NMR, XRD, TGA and rheology. The morphology and assembly mechanism of HBC nan...
