Abstract
Abstract The synthesis of novel degradable hydrogels, with designable structures and good biocompatibility, produces attractive materials for use in connective tissue regeneration applications. However, the way in which human fibroblast cells respond to terpolymer hydrogels such as collagen–polyvinylpyrrolidone–polyethylene glycol (C–PVP–PEG) remains largely unknown. The aim of this study was to synthesize a gamma-radiation-induced C–PVP–PEG hydrogel and to evaluate its structure, morphology and cell viability in fibroblasts. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy showed shifting of amide I to higher frequencies, as evidence of crosslinking produced by the radiation. The morphology of the hydrogel varied with the ratio of the polymers. We show a proposal for the mechanism of the hydrogel synthesis. The in vitro assessment of the hydrogels suggested that at 50 kGy, the presence of collagen decreased the cell viability for all samples, except for C–PVP. However, when PEG and PVP were added to the collagen, the cell’s viability increased with respect to the irradiated collagen sample.

Abstract Collagen–polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) superabsorbent hydrogels were synthesized by γ– irradiation in the absence of oxygen, using high molecular weight PVP and acidic collagen Type I. Sol–gel analysis and swelling experiments were performed in order to determine the gel fraction, network parameters, the yield of cross–linking, respectively scission, as well as to establish the diffusion characteristics of water. Rheological experiments and characterization of the chemical structure before...

Abstract Collagen mimetic peptide–PEG hybrid hydrogels have emerged as a new class of synthetic collagen mimics with well-defined structure and composition. Herein, we probed the versatility of a collagen mimetic peptide–PEG hybrid hydrogel for biomimetic synthesis of hydroxyapatite. This was achieved by double-diffusion, where ion precursors diffused from opposite directions into the hydrogel to form a precipitant band with hydroxyapatite minerals. Morphological and crystallographic analyses re...

Abstract In this paper, inorganic/organic hybrid poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAM) hydrogels based on polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) were prepared via γ-ray irradiation in one step. Here, the octa-methacrylate POSS (OMAPOSS) as a crosslinker could effectively control the size of pores of the hybrid hydrogels, which has been revealed by SEM. The thermal property of the hybrid PNIPAM hydrogels was also influenced by the amount of OMAPOSS. Additionally, OMAPOSS-containing hybrid hy...

Abstract Dietary silicon is essential in the maintenance of bone and cartilage. However, the mechanism by which silicon, in the form of silicates, triggers a biological response has never been uncovered. Here we demonstrate the incorporation of orthosilicic acid (Si(OH)4), the form of silicon in the body, within collagen scaffolds for use as an in vitro platform to identify key genes affected by silicates. Ice-templated collagen–silicate scaffolds, containing 0.21 wt% silicon, were validated by ...

Hydrogels were prepared using polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP) blended with carrageenan by gamma irradiation at different doses of 25 and 40 kGy. Gel fraction of hydrogels prepared using 10 and 15% PVP in combination with 0.25 and 0.5% carrageenan was evaluated. Based on gel fraction, 15% PVP in combination with 0.25% carrageenan and radiation dose of 25 kGy was selected for the preparation of hydrogels with nanosilver. Radiolytic synthesis of silver nanoparticles within the PVP hydrogel was carried ...

Collagen–polyvinylpyrrolidone (C–PVP) is a copolymer that is generated from the γ irradiation of a mixture of type I collagen and low-molecular-weight PVP. It is characterized by immunomodulatory, fibrolytic, and antifibrotic properties. Here, we used various physicochemical and biological strategies to characterize the structure, biochemical susceptibility, as well as its effects on metabolic activity in fibroblasts. C–PVP contained 16 times more PVP than collagen, but only 55.8% of PVP was bon...

Abstract The present work was aimed to prepare hydrogels from polymer blend between poly ( N -vinyl pyrrolidone) (PVP) and methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose (MHEC) via 60 Co gamma irradiation. The crosslinking structures in the hydrogels were induced by varying the irradiation doses from 10 to 40 kGy. The gel fraction and the swelling ratio of hydrogels were characterized. The results showed that the swelling ratio of hydrogels increases with increasing the irradiation dose while the gel fraction of...

Under γ-irradiation, concentrated collagen solutions yielded collagen hydrogels and liquid products. The molecular structure of collagen hydrogels and the source of the liquid products were studied. Furthermore, preliminary biological properties of the hydrogels were investigated. The results revealed that crosslinking occurred to form collagen hydrogel and the crosslinking density increased with the increasing of the absorbed dose, and the collagen hydrogels showed enhanced mechanical propertie...

Abstract PEG derived hydrogels were synthesized by a novel synthesis route under mild condition. First, we synthesized a soluble linear copolymer by amino-terminated polyethylene glycol ATPEG and Pyromellitic dianhydride (PMDA), named by p (ATPEG -co- PMDA). The copolymer with imide rings on the main chain can be soluble in most of solvents. Then, the imide-rings of the copolymer were open by amino groups of Butanediamine (BDA) under ambient condition to form cross-linking network. The cross-lin...

The MTT (3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5 diphenyl tetrazolium bromide) assay is based on the conversion of MTT into formazan crystals by living cells, which determines mitochondrial activity. Since for most cell populations the total mitochondrial activity is related to the number of viable cells, this assay is broadly used to measure the in vitro cytotoxic effects of drugs on cell lines or primary patient cells. In this chapter the protocol of the assay is described including important conside...

Nanoparticles possess a huge potential to be employed in numerous biomedical purposes; their applications may include drug delivery systems, gene therapy, and tissue engineering. However, the in vivo use in biomedical applications requires that nanoparticles exhibit sterility. Thus, diverse sterilization techniques have been developed to remove or destroy microbial contamination. The main sterilization methods include sterile filtration, autoclaving, ionizing radiation, and nonionizing radiation...

Abstract This paper reviews the preparation of hydrogel based on cellulose and its derivatives. Cellulose is the most abundant natural organic polymer on earth. To date, the exploitation of cellulose has been studied in various applications. However, cellulose has low solubility in water and most organic solvents. Thus, specific solvent systems such as NaOH/urea, NaOH/thiourea, lithium chloride, and ionic liquids need to be employed to vary cellulose application. The hydrogel is a 3D network str...

Abstract The synthesis of the poly(ester-urethanes) using poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) has gained increasing interest as scaffolds for use in tissue engineering despite their moderate hydrophobicity and biocompatibility. However, it is not yet known if the grafting of poly(N‐hydroxyethyl acrylamide) is suitable to improve the degree of hydrophilicity of the surface. This study aims to tailor the surface of these biopolymers by plasma-induced graft polymerization of N‐hydroxyethyl acrylamide. The synt...

Abstract Both chitosan (CS) and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (P(3HB)) are two good options for use in tissue engineering. Some of the advantages of these polymers are biodegradability and non-toxicity. However, the inadequate mechanical properties and hydrophobicity (P3HB) and the low porosity (CS) are examples of shortcomings that restrict its applications. The polysaccharide was grafted onto P(3HB) in a previous work for removing these disadvantages. As of yet, it is still unknown whether our P(3HB...

The sterilization processes of nanoparticles (NP) by autoclaving and filtration are two of the most utilized methods in the pharmaceutical industry but are not always a viable option. For this reason, the search for alternative options such as UV and gamma radiation is of interest. In this work, we evaluated both types of sterilization on two types of NP in solid state widely employed in the literature for biomedical applications, poly-(e-caprolactone) and poly(D, L-lactide-co-glycolide) acid NP...
