Abstract [en]

An inflammatory reaction occurs following biomaterial implantation in the body, which produce toxic byproducts such as reactive oxygen species (ROS). Although ROS is required to clear the wound, excessive ROS can damage the tissue around the implant site, eventually leading to implant failure. One approach to control the inflammatory response is to incorporate an antioxidant into the biomaterial in order to scavenge ROS produced by activated phagocytes. In the present study, an organoselenium antioxidative compound was incorporated into a brushite cement, with the goal of scavenging ROS generated from activated primary human mononuclear leukocytes (MNCs), in vitro. The effect of the antioxidant on the physical properties of brushite cement, and its release from the cement were investigated via compressive strength, setting time, phase composition, and UV spectroscopy analysis. The physical properties of brushite remained unchanged following incorporation of the antioxidant. The antioxidant was slowly released from the cement, following a non-Fickian transport mechanism, with approximately 60% of the loaded antioxidant released over five days. The released antioxidant was then tested for its ability to scavenge ROS released by MNCs using the luminol amplified chemiluminescence assay. The results show that antioxidative released at both early stages (24 h) and late stages (120 h) retained its scavenging capacity and effectively reduced ROS production. These results indicate that brushite cements loaded with organoselenium compounds can modulate ROS production after implantation and potentially modulate the inflammatory response to improve device integration.

Abstract [en]

Novel azo-bis-ebselen compounds 7 were prepared by reduction of 7-nitro-2-aryl-1,2-benzisoselenazol-3(2H)ones 3 and 6 with sodium benzenetellurolate; NaTeC6H5, and by reaction of 2-bromo-3-nitrobenzamides with Na2Se2. The X-ray structure of 7b showed that the molecule, due to strong intramolecular secondary Se center dot center dot center dot N interactions, is completely planar. Azo-compounds 7 upon further reaction with NaTeC6H5 were reductively cleaved to provide 2 equiv of the corresponding aromatic amine. The weak Se-N bond was not stable enough to survive the reaction conditions, and diselenides 8 were isolated after workup. Whereas azo-bis-ebselens 7 were poor mimics of the glutathione peroxidase (GPx)-enzymes, nitroebselens 3, 6, and 11b and diselenides 8 were 3-6-fold more active than ebselen. Based on Se-77 NMR. spectroscopy, a catalytic cycle for diselenide 8b, involving aminoebselen 14, was proposed. As assessed by chemiluminescence measurements, the good GPx-mimics could reduce production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in stimulated human mononuclear cells more efficiently than Trolox. No toxic effects of the, compounds were seen in MC3T3-cells at 25 mu M.

Abstract [en]

Luminescent lanthanide (Ln(III)) complexes with coumarin or carbostyril antennae were synthesized and their photophysical properties evaluated using steady-state and time-resolved UV-vis spectroscopy. Ligands bearing distant hydroxycoumarin-derived antennae attached through triazole linkers were modest sensitizers for Eu(III) and Tb(III), whereas ligands with 7-amidocarbostyrils directly linked to the coordination site could reach good quantum yields for multiple Ln(III), including the visible emitters Sm(III) and Dy(III), and the near-infrared emitters Nd(III) and Yb(III). The highest lanthanide-centered luminescence quantum yields were 35% (Tb), 7.9% (Eu), 0.67% (Dy), and 0.18% (Sm). Antennae providing similar luminescence intensities with 2-4 Ln-emitters were identified. Photoredox quenching of the carbostyril antenna excited states was observed for all Eu(III)-complexes and should be sensitizing in the case of Yb(III); the scope of the process extends to Ln(III) for which it has not been seen previously, specifically Dy(III) and Sm(III). The proposed process is supported by photophysical and electrochemical data. A FRET-type mechanism was identified in architectures with both distant and close antennae for all of the Lns. This mechanism seems to be the only sensitizing one at long distance and probably contributes to the sensitization at shorter distances along with the triplet pathway. The complexes were nontoxic to either bacterial or mammalian cells. Complexes of an ester-functionalized ligand were taken up by bacteria in a concentration-dependent manner. Our results suggest that the effects of FRET and photoredox quenching should be taken into consideration when designing luminescent Ln complexes. These results also establish these Ln(III)-complexes for multiplex detection beyond the available two-color systems.

Abstract [en]

Increased oxidative stress plays a significant role in the etiology of bone diseases. Heightened levels of H2O2 disrupt bone homeostasis, leading to greater bone resorption than bone formation. Organochalcogen compounds could act as free radical trapping agents or glutathione peroxidase mimetics, reducing oxidative stress in inflammatory diseases. In this report, we synthesized and screened a library of organoselenium and organotellurium compounds for hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity, using macrophagic cell lines RAW264.7 and THP-1, as well as human mono- and poly-nuclear cells. These cells were stimulated to release H2O2, using phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate, with and without organochalogens. Released H2O2 was then measured using a chemiluminescent assay over a period of 2 h. The screening identified an organoselenium compound which scavenged H2O2 more effectively than the vitamin E analog, Trolox. We also found that this organoselenium compound protected MC3T3 cells against H2O2 -induced toxicity, whereas Trolox did not. The organoselenium compound exhibited no cytotoxicity to the cells and had no deleterious effects on cell proliferation, viability, or alkaline phosphatase activity. The rapidity of H2O2 scavenging and protection suggests that the mechanism of protection is due to the direct scavenging of extracellular H2O2. This compound is a promising modulators of inflammation and could potentially treat diseases involving high levels of oxidative stress.

Abstract [en]

Nanomaterials are used in many different industries such as cosmetics, food, clothing, and electronics. There is increasing concern that exposure to nanoparticles (NPs) during pregnancy can adversely affect fetal development. It is well known that the size, charge, and chemistry of a nanoparticle can modulate embryological development. The role that particle morphology plays on early development, however, is still widely unknown. The present study aims to investigate the effect of hydroxyapatite nanoparticle (HANP) morphology on embryological development in a zebrafish exposure model. Four distinct HANP morphologies (dots, long rods, sheets, and fibers) were fabricated and characterized. Zebrafish embryos were exposed to HANPs (0-100 mg/L), and viability and developmental deformities were evaluated for up to 5 days post-fertilization (dpf). Malformations such as pericardial edema and axial curvature were apparent in embryos as early as 1 dpf, following exposure to the dot and fiber particles, and developed in embryos by 3 dpf in the sheet and long rod particle groups. Minimal death was observed in response to dot, long rod, and sheet particles (<= 25%), while fiber particles induced overwhelming toxicity (<= 60%) after 1 dpf, and complete toxicity during all subsequent time points. Collectively, these results suggest that nanoparticle morphology can significantly impact embryological development and should be a required consideration when designing nanomaterials for commercial use.

Abstract [en]

Calcium phosphate cements are synthetic bone graft substitutes able to set at physiological conditions.They can be applied by minimally invasive surgery and can also be used as drug delivery systems.Consequently, the drug release pattern from the cement paste (fresh cement) is of high clinical interest.However, previous studies have commonly evaluated the drug release using pre-set cements only.Therefore, the aim of this work was to determine if the time elapsed from cement preparation untilimmersion in the solution (3 min for fresh cements, and 1 h and 15 h for pre-set cements) had aninfluence on its physical properties, and correlating these to the drug release profile. Simvastatin wasselected as a model drug, while brushite cement was used as drug carrier. This study quantified howthe setting of a material reduces the accessibility of the release media to the material, thus preventingdrug release. A shift in the drug release pattern was observed, from a burst-release for fresh cements toa sustained release for pre-set cements.

Abstract [en]

In this study, two different extraction approaches were compared in order to evaluate the cytotoxicity of 7 different acrylic bone cements, mainly developed for spinal applications, to osteoblastic cells. Firstly, a static extraction was carried out continuously over 24 h, a method widely used in literature. Secondly, a quasi-dynamic extraction method that allowed the investigation of time-dependent cytotoxic effects of curing acrylic bone cements to cells was introduced. In both cases the extraction of the cements was started at a very early stage of the polymerization process to simulate the conditions during clinical application. Data obtained by the quasi-dynamic extraction method suggest that the cytotoxicity of the setting materials mainly originates from the release of toxic components during the first hour of the polymerization reaction. It was also shown that a static extraction over 24 h generally represents this initial stage of the curing process. Furthermore, compared to the static extraction, time dependent cytotoxicity profiles could be detected using the quasi-dynamic extraction method. Specifically, a modification of commercial Osteopal (R) V with castor oil as a plasticizer as well as a customized cement formulation showed clear differences in cytotoxic behavior compared to the other materials during the setting process. In addition, it was observed that unreacted monomer released from the castor oil modified cement was not the main component affecting the toxicity of the material extracts. The quasi-dynamic extraction method is a useful tool to get deeper insight into the cytotoxic potential of curing acrylic bone cements under relevant biological conditions, allowing systematic optimization of materials under development.

Abstract [en]

Surface modifications of titanium are widespread in an effort to improve the osseointegration capabilities of the metal for orthopaedic and dental applications. Here, electrical discharge machining (EDM) was used to create modified, notably, dual-topography surfaces on titanium. By swapping conventional copper electrodes for a titanium electrode and water dielectric, modified surfaces free of trace element contaminants were produced. Three surfaces were produced by varying the peak currents at 10 A, 29 A and a uniquely hierarchical multi current combination of 29 A followed by 2.4 A. The physicochemical properties of these surfaces were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-Ray Spectroscopy (EDX), and Auger Spectroscopy. These revealed the topography of the modified surfaces and a titanium oxide layer that was markedly thicker on the EDM samples compared to controls. In vitro cell testing was carried out with osteoblast-like MC3T3-E1 cells. Cell differentiation was increased in all EDM modified surfaces compared to controls and early differentiation was promoted on the dual-topography surface. The present study suggests the promise of dual-topography surfaces created using EDM for implant applications.

Abstract [en]

Surface properties of biomaterials can strongly influence biomaterial−host interactions. For this reason, coating processes open a wide range of possibilities to modulate the fate of a biomaterial in the body. This study evaluates the effect of a coating material intended for drug delivery capsules on biocompatibility and the release of reactive oxygen species (ROS), that is, respiratory burst in macrophages that indicates acute inflammation. In parallel with a new approach to develop drug-delivery capsules by directly coating solid-state drug particles, in this study, glass slides and silicon nanoparticles (NPs) were coated with aluminum oxide (Al2O3) using atomic layer deposition. Different sizes of NPs (20 and 310 nm) were suspended at different concentrations (10, 100, and 1000 μg/mL) and were evaluated. The homogeneous coating of slides was proved using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and the coating on NP was observed using transmission electron microscopy. Human dermal fibroblasts and human osteoblasts were able to proliferate on the coated slides and in the presence of a suspension of coated NPs (20 and 310 nm) at a low concentration (10 μg/mL). The macrophages released ROS only when in contact with NPs at a concentration of 1000 μg/mL, where the 20 nm NPs caused a higher release of ROS than the 310 nm NPs. This study shows that Al2O3 coatings do not affect the cells negatively and that the cell viability was compromised only when in contact with a high concentration (1000 μg/mL) of smaller (20 nm) NPs.

Abstract [en]

Biomedical implants have been widely used in bone repair applications. However, nanosized degradation products from these implants could elicit an inflammatory reaction, which may lead to implant failure. It is well known that the size, chemistry, and charge of these nanoparticles can modulate this response, but little is known regarding the role that the particle's morphology plays in inducing inflammation. The present study aims to investigate the effect of hydroxyapatite nanoparticle (HANPs) morphology on inflammation, in-vitro and in-vivo. Four distinct HANP morphologies were fabricated and characterized: long rods, dots, sheets, and fibers. Primary human polymorphonuclear cells (PMNCs), mononuclear cells (MNCs), and human dermal fibroblasts (hDFs) were exposed to HANPs and alterations in cell viability, morphology, apoptotic activity, and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production were evaluated, in vitro. PMNCs and hDFs experienced a 2-fold decrease in viability following exposure to fibers, while MNC viability decreased 5-fold after treatment with the dots. Additionally, the fibers stimulated an elevated ROS response in both PMNCs and MNCs, and the largest apoptotic behavior for all cell types. Furthermore, exposure to fibers and dots resulted in greater capsule thickness when implanted subcutaneously in mice. Collectively, these results suggest that nanoparticle morphology can significantly impact the inflammatory response.
