AB  - Understanding the difference in physicochemical properties and biological response between colloidal and powder formulations of identical materials is important before the given materials are used in a medical milieu. In this study we compared a set of biological effects of colloidal and powder formulations of composite nanoparticles comprising superparamagnetic iron oxide cores and silicate/carbon shells. Magnetic dipole interaction between adjacent nanoparticles was more pronounced in their powders than in their colloidal formulations. Nanoparticles delivered as powders were thus more responsive to the magnetic field, but exhibited reduced uptake in bone and brain cancer cells, including K7M2 osteosarcoma line and U87 and E297 glioblastoma lines. Specifically, while the alternate magnetic field elicited a more rapid heat generation in cell culture media supplemented with the magnetic powders, the nanoparticles dispersed in the same media were uptaken by the cancer cells more copiously. The cellular uptake proved to be more crucial in defining the effect on cell survival, given that suspended formulations elicited a greater degree of cancer cell death in the magnetic field compared to the powder-containing formulations. Because of this effect, colloidal formulations were able to target cancer cells more effectively than the powders: they reduced the viability of all three tested cancer cell lines to a significantly greater degree that the viability of the normal, MDCK-MDR1 cell line. It is concluded that better uptake profile can make up for the lower heating rate in the AC field and lead to a more effective magnetic hyperthermia therapy. These results also demonstrate that the direct delivery of ferrofluids is more optimal than the administration of their constitutive particles as powders. © 2019 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - Taking advantage of the flexibility of the apatite structure, nano- and micro-particles of hydroxyapatite (HAp) were doped with different combinations of rare earth ions (RE3+ = Gd, Eu, Yb, Tm) to achieve a synergy among their magnetic and optical properties and to enable their application in preventive medicine, particularly diagnostics based on multimodal imaging. All powders were synthesized through hydrothermal processing at T ≤ 200 °C. An X-ray powder diffraction analysis showed that all powders crystallized in P63/m space group of the hexagonal crystal structure. The refined unit-cell parameters reflected a decrease in the unit cell volume as a result of the partial substitution of Ca2+ with smaller RE3+ ions at both cation positions. The FTIR analysis additionally suggested that a synergy may exist solely in the triply doped system, where the lattice symmetry and vibration modes become more coherent than in the singly or doubly doped systems. HAp:RE3+ optical characterization revealed a change in the energy band gap and the appearance of a weak blue luminescence (λex = 370 nm) due to an increased concentration of defects. The “up”- and the “down”-conversion spectra of HAp:Gd/Yb/Tm and HAp:Gd/Eu powders showed characteristic transitions of Tm3+ and Eu3+, respectively. Furthermore, in contrast to diamagnetic HAp, all HAp:RE3+ powders exhibited paramagnetic behavior. Cell viability tests of HAp:Gd/Yb/Tm and HAp:Gd/Eu powders in human dental pulp stem cell cultures indicated their good biocompatibility. © 2019, The Author(s).

AB  - Composite biomaterials comprising nanostructured hydroxyapatite (HAp) have an enormous potential for natural bone tissue reparation, filling and augmentation. Chitosan (Ch) as a naturally derived polymer has many physicochemical and biological properties that make it an attractive material for use in bone tissue engineering. On the other hand, poly-D,L-lactide-co-glycolide (PLGA) is a synthetic polymer with a long history of use in sustained drug delivery and tissue engineering. However, while chitosan can disrupt the cell membrane integrity and may induce blood thrombosis, PLGA releases acidic byproducts that may cause tissue inflammation and interfere with the healing process. One of the strategies to improve the biocompatibility of Ch and PLGA is to combine them with compounds that exhibit complementary properties. In this study we present the synthesis and characterization, as well as in vitro and in vivo analyses of a nanoparticulate form of HAp coated with two different polymeric systems: (a) Ch and (b) a Ch-PLGA polymer blend. Solvent/non-solvent precipitation and freeze-drying were used for synthesis and processing, respectively, whereas thermogravimetry coupled with mass spectrometry was used for phase identification purposes in the coating process. HAp/Ch composite particles exhibited the highest antimicrobial activity against all four microbial strains tested in this work, but after the reconstruction of the bone defect they also caused inflammatory reactions in the newly formed tissue where the defect had lain. Coating HAp with a polymeric blend composed of Ch and PLGA led to a decrease in the reactivity and antimicrobial activity of the composite particles, but also to an increase in the quality of the newly formed bone tissue in the reconstructed defect area.

AB  - Recent developments in bone tissue engineering have led to an increased interest in one-dimensional (1D) hydroxyapatite (HA) nano- and micro-structures such as wires, ribbons and tubes. They have been proposed for use as cell substrates, reinforcing phases in composites and carriers for biologically active substances. Here we demonstrate the synthesis of 1D HA structures using an optimized, urea-assisted, high-yield hydrothermal batch process. The one-pot process, yielding HA structures composed of bundles of ribbons and wires, was typified by the simultaneous occurrence of a multitude of intermediate reactions, failing to meet the uniformity criteria over particle morphology and size. To overcome these issues, the preparation procedure was divided to two stages: dicalcium phosphate platelets synthesized in the first step were used as a precursor for the synthesis of 1D HA in the second stage. Despite the elongated particle morphologies, both the precursor and the final product exhibited excellent biocompatibility and caused no reduction of viability when tested against osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells in 2D culture up to the concentration of 2.6 mg/cm2. X-ray powder diffraction combined with a range of electron microscopies and laser diffraction analyses was used to elucidate the formation mechanism and the microstructure of the final particles. The two-step synthesis involved a more direct transformation of DCP to 1D HA with the average diameter of 37 nm and the aspect ratio exceeding 100:1. The comparison of crystalline domain sizes along different crystallographic directions showed no signs of significant anisotropy, while indicating that individual nanowires are ordered in bundles in the b crystallographic direction of the P63/m space group of HA. Intermediate processes, e.g., dehydration of dicalcium phosphate, are critical for the formation of 1D HA alongside other key aspects of this phase transformation, it must be investigated in more detail in the continuous design of smart HA micro- and nano-structures with advanced therapeutic potentials.

AB  - Recent developments in bone tissue engineering have led to an increased interest in one-dimensional (1D) hydroxyapatite (HA) nano- and micro-structures such as wires, ribbons and tubes. They have been proposed for use as cell substrates, reinforcing phases in composites and carriers for biologically active substances. Here we demonstrate the synthesis of 1D HA structures using an optimized, urea-assisted, high-yield hydrothermal batch process. The one-pot process, yielding HA structures composed of bundles of ribbons and wires, was typified by the simultaneous occurrence of a multitude of intermediate reactions, failing to meet the uniformity criteria over particle morphology and size. To overcome these issues, the preparation procedure was divided to two stages: dicalcium phosphate platelets synthesized in the first step were used as a precursor for the synthesis of 1D HA in the second stage. Despite the elongated particle morphologies, both the precursor and the final product exhibited excellent biocompatibility and caused no reduction of viability when tested against osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 cells in 2D culture up to the concentration of 2.6 mg/cm2. X-ray powder diffraction combined with a range of electron microscopies and laser diffraction analyses was used to elucidate the formation mechanism and the microstructure of the final particles. The two-step synthesis involved a more direct transformation of DCP to 1D HA with the average diameter of 37 nm and the aspect ratio exceeding 100:1. The comparison of crystalline domain sizes along different crystallographic directions showed no signs of significant anisotropy, while indicating that individual nanowires are ordered in bundles in the b crystallographic direction of the P63/m space group of HA. Intermediate processes, e.g., dehydration of dicalcium phosphate, are critical for the formation of 1D HA alongside other key aspects of this phase transformation, it must be investigated in more detail in the continuous design of smart HA micro- and nano-structures with advanced therapeutic potentials.

AB  - The applicative potential of synthetic calcium phosphates, especially hydroxyapatite (HAp), has become intensely broadened in the past 10 years, from bone tissue engineering to multiple other fields of biomedicine. Previously we have shown that hydroxyapatite nanoparticles coated with chitosan-poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide (HAp/Ch-PLGA) target lungs following their intravenous administration into mice. For this purpose radioactive 125-Iodine (125I), a low energy gamma emitter, was used to develop a novel in situ method for radiolabeling of particles and investigation of their biodistribution. In this study we utilize an emulsification process and freeze drying to load the composite particles based on hydroxyapatite nanocarrier, chitosane and poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) with 17β- hydroxy-17α-picolyl-androst-5-en-3β-acetate (A), a chemotherapeutic derivative of androstane. The picolyl androstane derivatives showed high potency in the cell inhibitors of hormonedependent cancers (adenocarcinoma, prostate cancer, cervix carcinoma, colon cancer, etc.). 1H NMR, 13C NMR and high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MS) techniques confirmed the intact structure of the derivative A following its entrapment within HAp/Ch-PLGA particles. The synthesized particles of A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA were found to be spherical in shape with a uniform size distribution of d50=168 nm. The release of A from HAp/Ch-PLGA was sustained, with no burst release or plateauing after three weeks. The obtained results of the DET and MTT tests show that the particles of A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA exhibit almost three times higher cytotoxicity towards lung adenocarcinoma cells (A549) than towards healthy cells (MRC5), while at the same time allowing twice as fast recovery of healthy cells. We have also analyzed the period of recovery of healthy, as well as cancer cells, following the treatment with A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA. After treatment with A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA, healthy cells recover twice as fast as the malignant ones. Immunofluorescent staining of primary fibroblasts interacting with HAp/Ch-PLGA and A-HAp/Ch-PLGA particles demonstrates no negative morphological or proliferative effects on cells.

The release of A from HAp/Ch-PLGA was sustained, neither exhibiting a burst release nor plateauing after three weeks. Atomic force microscopy and particle size distribution analyses were used to confirm that the particles were spherical with a uniform size distribution of d50=168nm. In vitro cytotoxicity testing of A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA using MTT and trypan blue dye exclusion assays demonstrated that the particles were cytotoxic to the A549 human lung carcinoma cell line (46±2%), while simultaneously preserving high viability (83±3%) of regular MRC5 human lung fibroblasts and causing no harm to primary mouse lung fibroblasts. In conclusion, composite A-loaded HAp/Ch-PLGA particles could be seen as promising drug delivery platforms for selective cancer therapies, targeting malignant cells for destruction, while having a significantly lesser cytotoxic effect on the healthy cells.

AB  - Composite biomaterials based on nano-hydroxyapatite have an enormous potential for natural bone tissue reparation, filling and augmentation. Multifunctional nanoparticulate systems based on HAp coated with biocompatible and bioresorbable polymers make a separate group of filler systems in bone tissue engineering [1,2]. Chitosan has many physicochemical (reactive OH and NH2 groups) and biological (biocompatible, biodegradable) properties that make it an attractive material for use in bone tissue engineering. However, chitosan may induce thrombosis and it is therefore unsuitable as blood – contacting biomaterial. One of the strategies to improve the biocompatibility of chitosan is combination of this biopolymer with compounds that exhibit complementary properties. In our studies, we present the synthesis, characterization, in vitro and in vivo research of a particulate form of nano HAp-coated polymer systems. We synthesized nanoparticulate HAp coated with chitosan (Ch) and a chitosan-poly-D,L-lactide-co-glycolide (Ch-PLGA) polymer blend obtained via the solvent/non-solvent method and freeze-drying processing. We also examined the possibility of using Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis/Differential-Thermal Analysis (DTA/TGA) coupled on-line with mass spectrometry (MS) as a finger print for identification purposes in coating processes. The quantitative antimicrobial test has shown that HAp/Ch-PLGA have some antibacterial properties (MIC (mg/mL): Pseudomonas aeruginosa – 6.40, Staphylococcus aureus – 6.40, Staphylococcus epidermidis – 3.20). MTT assay was used to test cytotoxicity and cell viability. By using HAp/Ch-PLGA in the form of a filler a high level of reparatory ability, with the presence Haversian canals and cement lines in reconstructed of bone defect, was achieved in vivo. [1] N.

We synthesized nanoparticulate HAp coated with chitosan (Ch) and a chitosan-poly-D,L-lactide-co-glycolide (Ch-PLGA) polymer blend obtained via the solvent/non-solvent method and freeze-drying processing. We also examined the possibility of using Thermo-Gravimetric Analysis/Differential-Thermal Analysis (DTA/TGA) coupled on-line with mass spectrometry (MS) as a finger print for identification purposes in coating processes. The quantitative antimicrobial test has shown that HAp/Ch-PLGA have some antibacterial properties (MIC (mg/mL): Pseudomonas aeruginosa – 6.40, Staphylococcus aureus – 6.40, Staphylococcus epidermidis – 3.20). MTT assay was used to test cytotoxicity and cell viability. By using HAp/Ch-PLGA in the form of a filler a high level of reparatory ability, with the presence Haversian canals and cement lines in reconstructed of bone defect, was achieved in vivo. [1] N.

AB  - Cholecalciferol, vitamin D3, plays an important role in bone metabolism by regulating extracellular levels of calcium. Presented here is a study on the effects of the local delivery of cholecalciferol (D3) using nanoparticulate carriers composed of hydroxyapatite (HAp) and poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA). Multifunctional nanoparticulate HAp-based powders were prepared for the purpose of: (a) either fast or sustained, local delivery of cholecalciferol, and (b) the secondary, osteoconductive and defect-filling effect of the carrier itself. Two types of HAp-based powders with particles of narrowly dispersed sizes in the nano range were prepared and tested in this study: HAp nanoparticles as direct cholecalciferol delivery agents and HAp nanoparticles coated with cholecalciferol-loaded poly(D,L)-lactide-co-glycolide (HAp/D3/PLGA).Satisfying biocompatibility of particulate systems, when incubated in contact with MC3T3-E1 osteoblastic cells in vitro, was observed for HAp/D3/PLGA and pure HAp. In contrast, an extensively fast release of cholecalciferol from the system comprising HAp nanoparticles coated with cholecalciferol (HAp/D3) triggered necrosis of the osteoblastic cells in vitro. Artificial defects induced in the osteoporotic bone of the rat mandible were successfully reconstructed following implantation of cholecalciferol-coated HAp nanoparticles as well as those comprising HAp nanoparticles coated with cholecalciferol-loaded PLGA (HAp/D3/PLGA). The greatest levels of enhanced angiogenesis, vascularization, osteogenesis and bone structure differentiation were achieved upon the implementation of HAp/D3/PLGA systems.

AB  - Indications exist that paramagnetic calcium phosphates may be able to promote regeneration of bone faster than their regular, diamagnetic counterparts. In this study, analyzed was the influence of paramagnetic cobalt-substituted hydroxyapatite nanoparticles on osteoporotic alveolar bone regeneration in rats. Simultaneously, biocompatibility of the material was tested in vitro, on osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 and epithelial Caco-2 cells in culture. The material was shown to be biocompatible and nontoxic when added to epithelial monolayers in vitro, while it caused a substantial decrease in the cell viability as well as deformation of the cytoskeleton and cell morphology when incubated with the osteoblastic cells. In the course of 6 months after the implantation of the material containing different amounts of cobalt, ranging from 5 to 12 wt%, in the osteoporotic alveolar bone of the lower jaw, the following parameters were investigated: histopathological parameters, alkaline phosphatase and alveolar bone density. The best result in terms of osteoporotic bone tissue regeneration was observed for hydroxyapatite nanoparticles with the largest content of cobalt ions. The histological analysis showed a high level of reparatory ability of the nanoparticulate material implanted in the bone defect, paralleled by a corresponding increase in the alveolar bone density. The combined effect of growth factors from autologous plasma admixed to cobalt-substituted hydroxyapatite was furthermore shown to have a crucial effect on the augmented osteoporotic bone regeneration upon the implantation of the biomaterial investigated in this study.

AB  - A simple and green chemical method has been developed to synthesize stable bare and capped silver nanoparticles based on the reduction of silver ions by glucose and capping by poly(alpha,gamma,l-glutamic acid) (PGA). The use of ammonia during synthesis was avoided. PGA has had a dual role in the synthesis and was used as a capping agent to make the silver nanoparticle more biocompatible and to protect the nanoparticles from agglomerating in the liquid medium. The synthesized PGA-capped silver nanoparticles in the size range 5-45 nm were stable over long periods of time, without signs of precipitation. Morphological examination has shown that the silver nanoparticles had a nearly spherical, multiply twinned structure. The effects of the reaction temperature and the reaction time during the synthesis were investigated too. The biocompatibility of the PGA-capped silver nanoparticles is discussed in terms of in vitro toxicity with human intestinal Caco-2 cells. The samples were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and zeta potential measurements.

PGA has had a dual role in the synthesis and was used as a capping agent to make the silver nanoparticle more biocompatible and to protect the nanoparticles from agglomerating in the liquid medium. The synthesized PGA-capped silver nanoparticles in the size range 5-45 nm were stable over long periods of time, without signs of precipitation. Morphological examination has shown that the silver nanoparticles had a nearly spherical, multiply twinned structure. The effects of the reaction temperature and the reaction time during the synthesis were investigated too. The biocompatibility of the PGA-capped silver nanoparticles is discussed in terms of in vitro toxicity with human intestinal Caco-2 cells. The samples were characterized by UV-Visible spectroscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, and zeta potential measurements.",

AB  - Specific group of controlled drug delivery systems in bone tissue engineering are multifunctional nanoparticle systems (MNPs) based on hydroxyapatite coated with drug loadedbioresorbable polymer. This study illustrates the possibility for controlled synthesis of multifunctional nanoparticulate forms based on hydroxyapatite as a system for local delivery of vitamin D3 and secondary delivery of defect filler hydroxyapatite. The results were two type of nanoparticle powder of controlled shapes, sizes and properties: hydroxyapatite nano particles as vitamin D3 carriers (HAp/D3) and vitamin D3-loaded hydroxyapatite coated with poly-D,Llactide-co-glycolide (HAp/D3/PLGA) with particle sizes of d50=68 nm and d50=71 nm, respectively. Simultaneously, biocompatibility of the materials was tested in vitro, on osteoblastic MC3T3-E1 and epithelial Caco-2 cells in culture. Biocompatibility tests carried out on cell cultures have shown intact monolayers of epithelial cells in contact with both materials and no negative effects on the cell viability. The aim of this work was application in living/human systems, and it has been tested in vivo; artificially made bone defects of a mandible damaged by osteoporosis have been reconstructed with both types of materials. The best results were achieved 24 weeks after implantation of vitamin D3-loaded hydroxyapatite coated with poly-D,L-lactide-co-glycolide. Accelerated angiogenesis, vascularization, osteogenesis and bone structure differentiation has been achieved in the presence of specific islet-like forms of ossification centers.

AB  - Biodegradable poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) and bioactive hydroxyapatite (HAP) are selected for the formation of a multifunctional system with the specific core-shell structure to be applied as a carrier of a drug. As a result, both components of PLGA/HAp core-shells are able to capture one part of the drug. Polymeric shells consisting of small nanospheres up to 20 nm in size act as a matrix in which one part of the drug is dispersed. In the same time, ceramic cores are formed of rod-like hydroxyapatite particles at the surface of which another part of the drug is adsorbed onto the interface between the polymer and the ceramics. The content of the loaded drug, as well as the selected solvent/non-solvent system, have a crucial influence on the resulting PLGA/HAp morphology and, finally, unimodal distribution of core-shells is obtained. The redistribution of the drug between the organic and inorganic parts of the material is expected to provide an interesting contribution to the kinetics of the drug release resulting in non-typical two-step drug release.
