Quercetin (Qu), a bioflavonoid, has been reported to positively affect bone metabolism. For the first time, Qu with different concentrations was utilized to functionalize 3D-printed poly(l-lactide) (PLLA) scaffold with the aid of a polydopamine (PDA) layer through a convenient and effective way in this study. Results revealed that the coexistence of PDA and Qu can capacitate the 3D-printed PLLA scaffold to possess rougher surface, as well as better hydrophilicity and compressive properties. The resulting PDA- and Qu-modified PLLA scaffolds (Qu/PD-PLLA) can sustainably release Qu to some extent, which is more beneficial to the proliferation and attachment of MC3T3-E1 cells, upregulating ALP activity and calcium nodules as well as promoting the expression of related osteogenic genes and proteins. More significantly, such a positive impact of the Qu on the cell affinity and osteogenic activity played in a dose-dependent manner. This study revealed the potential of the 3D-printed Qu/PD-PLLA scaffolds with a c...

Porous biodegradable scaffolds provide a physical substrate for cells allowing them to attach, proliferate and guide the formation of new tissues. A variety of techniques have been developed to fabricate tissue engineering (TE) scaffolds, among them the most relevant is the thermally-induced phase separation (TIPS). This technique has been widely used in recent years to fabricate three-dimensional (3D) TE scaffolds. Low production cost, simple experimental procedure and easy processability toget...

Polymer hydrogels are generally insufficient biomechanics, strong resistance to cell adhesion, and weak bioactivity which limits their application in bone tissue engineering considerably. In order to develop a bone tissue engineering material with both good mechanical properties, osteogenic and angiogenic activity. Nanofibers carrying DNA plasmid (pNF) are introduced to gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA) and thiolated chitosan (TCS) system for preparing a novel GelMA/TCS/pNF composite hydrogel with du...

Abstract Osteogenesis is closely complemented by angiogenesis during the bone regeneration process. The development of functional hydrogel bone substitutes that mimic the extracellular matrix is a promising strategy for bone tissue engineering. However, the development of scaffold materials tailored to exhibit sufficient biomechanics, biodegradability, and favorable osteogenic and angiogenic activity continue to present a great challenge. Herein, we prepared a novel magnesium ion-incorporating d...

Various requirements raised by actual applications in different fields for 3D printing have provoked its rapid development in technologies together with various specific materials. A protocol, combining 3D printing with surface modification, is standing out recently due to its outstanding capability to meet requirements in the fields where surface properties are critical by controlling the surface performance of the 3D printed architectures. The so-called surface functionalized 3D printing, by a...

Abstract Bone defect therapy based on advanced biocomposite hydrogel scaffolds provide a promising strategy in bone tissue engineering. Inducing bone regeneration that meets the biomechanical, bioactivity and osteoconductivity criteria of bone tissue engineering is highly appealing but challenging. Here, we designed a mineralized, high-strength and tough nanocomposite hydrogel by in situ deposition of calcium phosphate hydroxide salt nanohydroxyapatite (HAP) after photopolymerization of gelatin ...

Abstract The use of FDM/FFF in 3D printing for medical sciences is becoming common. This is due to the high availability and decent price of both 3D printers and filaments useful for FDM/FFF. Currently, researchers' attention is focused mainly on the study of medical filaments based on PLA, PCL or their modifications. This contributes to insufficient diversity of medical-grade filaments on the market. Moreover, due to the lack of specified standards for filaments testing, manufacturers often pro...

It was a physicist, Wolfgang Pauli, who recognized a century ago that ?God made the bulk;the surface was invented by the devil ? And indeed, adjusting the surface properties of materials has kept engineers and chemists busy since?and it still does In the context of biomedical engineering, the key challenge is ensuring the functionality of an artificial object, which is inserted into the human body?an environment that passively and actively rejects foreign materials Here, recent advances in this ...

Melanins are a group of dark insoluble pigments found widespread in nature. In mammals, the brown-black eumelanins and the reddish-yellow pheomelanins are the main determinants of skin, hair, and eye pigmentation and play a significant role in photoprotection as well as in many biological functions ensuring homeostasis. Due to their broad-spectrum light absorption, radical scavenging, electric conductivity, and paramagnetic behavior, eumelanins are widely studied in the biomedical field. The con...

Abstract Fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printing is currently one of the hot topics in pharmaceutics and has shown a 2000% increase in the number of research articles published in the last 5 years. In the prospect of a new era of FDM focused on the industrial development of this technique applied to the fabrication of personalized medicines, a conceptual map to move through the evolution of the design of the printed dosage forms/drug delivery systems was conceived and mainly discussed by mea...
