Abstract Treatment of non-healing infected wounds is an arduous task in clinical practice. Early antibacterial strategy and subsequent promotion of granulation tissue growth facilitate to cure the wounds. For this purpose, we fabricated a sequential drug delivery system by incorporation of an injectable hydrogel with porous PLGA microspheres. Vancomycin was linked to the injectable hydrogel via the reversible Schiff's base reaction, and VEGF were encapsulated into PLGA microspheres. After adding...

The outcome of peripheral nerve repair following transection is influenced by a number of factors but almost all approaches require anastomosis of the nerve using technically demanding microsurgical procedures. However, the use of sutures presents a number of unavoidable challenges including additional nerve trauma, stimulation of an inflammatory response, and endoneural fibrosis. The objective of the present study was to determine the efficacy of a sutureless approach to nerve repair. A rat sci...

Summary The human intestinal mucosa is a critical site for absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME)/Tox studies in drug development and is difficult to recapitulate in vitro . Using bioprinting, we generated three-dimensional (3D) intestinal tissue composed of human primary intestinal epithelial cells and myofibroblasts with architecture and function to model the native intestine. The 3D intestinal tissue demonstrates a polarized epithelium with tight junctions and specialized ...

Abstract Injectable hydrogels have been an attractive topic in biomaterials. However, during gelation in vivo, they are easy to disperse due to tissue exudates, thus leading to failure of controlled drug release. To solve this problem, we present a novel polysaccharide-based injectable hydrogel via self-crosslinking of aldehyde-modified xanthan (Xan-CHO) and carboxymethyl-modified chitosan (NOCC). The physical properties were optimized by adjusting the mass ratio of Xan-CHO and NOCC. Experiments...

Abstract Hydrogels based on chitosan/hyaluronic acid/β-sodium glycerophosphate demonstrate injectability, body temperature sensitivity, pH sensitive drug release and adhesion to cancer cell. The drug (doxorubicin) loaded hydrogel precursor solutions are injectable and turn to hydrogels when the temperature is increased to body temperature. The acidic condition (pH 4.00) can trigger the release of drug and the cancer cell (Hela) can adhere to the surface of the hydrogels, which will be beneficial...

Treating peripheral nerve defects represents a clinical challenge, and nerve conduits lacking an internal scaffold lead to limited large nerve gap regeneration. Here, we bridged 10-mm sciatic nerve defects in rats with a chitosan conduit filled with 0, 0.5, or 1.0 mg of simvastatin in Pluronic F-127 hydrogel. We assessed subsequent nerve regeneration using the sciatic functional index (SFI), electrophysiological assessments, Fluoro-Gold (FG) retrograde tracing, gastrocnemius muscle mass measurem...

Printable hydrogels desired in bioengineering have extremely high demands on biocompatibility and mechanic strength, which can hardly be achieved in conventional hydrogels made with biopolymers. Here, we show that on employment of the strategy of coordination-triggered hierarchical self-assembly of naturally occurring small-molecule folic acid, supramolecular hydrogels with robust mechanical elastic modulus comparable to synthetic double-network polymer gels can be made at concentrations below 1...

Injectable hydrogels have attracted increasing attention in tissue regeneration and local drug delivery applications. Current click reactions for preparing injectable hydrogels often require a photoinitiator or catalyst, which may be toxic and may involve complex synthesis of precursors. Here, we report a facile and inexpensive method to prepare injectable and degradable hydrogels via spontaneous amino–yne click reaction without using any initiator or catalyst under physiological conditions base...

The development of a self-assembling hydrogel, prepared from maleimide-modified and thiolated chitosan (CS), is described. Under mild reaction conditions, the natural CS polymer was coupled with either maleimide or sulfhydryl moieties in a one-step synthesis. Subsequently, these CS polymers spontaneously formed a covalently crosslinked CS hydrogel when mixed. The three-dimensional network structure was visualized with scanning electron microscopy. The swelling and degradation behavior was evalua...

Abstract A multi-functional hybrid hydrogel P(M-Arg/NIPAAm) with temperature response, anti-protein adsorption and antibacterial properties was prepared and applied as wound dressing. The hydrogel was carried out by free radical copolymerization of methacrylate arginine (M-Arg) and N -isopropyl acrylamide (NIPAAm) monomers using N,N′ -methylene bisacrylamide as a crosslinker, and ammonium persulfate/ N,N,N′, N′ -tetramethylethylenediamine as the redox initiator. To endow the antimicrobial proper...

Abstract Healing of diabetic wounds present a big challenge due to insufficient vascular supply and bacterial infection. We developed chitosan based biodegradable polymeric hydrogel containing silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) as antimicrobial agent and calcium alginate nanoparticles (Ca-AlgNps) as hemostatic agent to address this problem. The prepared Chitosan/Ca-AlgNps/AgNPs hydrogel showed broad spectrum antimicrobial properties against both Gram negative (E. coli, P. aeruginosa) and Gram positive...

Polyamide-6 (PA6) is a synthetic polymer that bears resemblance to collagen in its backbone and has excellent stability in human body fluid. Chitosan (CS) with the similar structure to that of the polysaccharides existing in the extracellular matrix, has a more suitable biodegradation rate for the formation of new-bone. Eelectrospun fiber have nanoscale structure, high porosity and large specific surface area, can simulate the structure and biological function of the natural extracellular matrix...

Abstract Physically cross-linked hydrogels are used as scaffolds in tissue engineering applications because they are easily produced and avoid the potential toxicity produced by chemical cross-linkers. The physical hydrogels' formation involves several physical interactions as molecular entanglements, hydrogen bonding, ionic, and hydrophobic interactions. Chitosan is a cationic, non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable polysaccharide obtained by chitin's deacetylation and is used to produce p...

Abstract Numbers of chitosan hydrogels through chemical modification had drawn increasing attention, however, most of chitosan hydrogels lost the pH-responsive performance due to plenty of amino groups (‒NH2) in chitosan were consumed by reacting with other functional groups. To construct a pH-responsive UV-crosslinkable chitosan hydrogel, C6-OH selectively modified chitosan via protection/deprotection strategy to amino groups was synthesized, the allyl groups on C6 site and amino groups on C2 s...

Abstract Microencapsulation being an emerging technique has provided effective solution to the challenges faced by pharmaceutical, cosmetic, food agriculture and textile industries to deliver ingredients in their active forms to the target sites. Chitosan is a non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible amino polysaccharide which makes it useful for the encapsulation of various active ingredients with positive potential applications. Chitosan coating on food products, for example, gives them prot...

Abstract A pH-sensitive polymer based on the poly(styrene-alt-maleic anhydride) co-polymer serves as basis to develop a microextraction method (pH-HGME) in direct combination with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and fluorescence detection (FD) for the determination of seven organic compounds, including three polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), three monohydroxylated PAHs and one alkylphenol, in urine. The method bases on the structural modification of the pH-sensitive polymer ...
