Book Description :

Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration provides a comprehensive review of currently available biomaterials and how they can be applied in bone regeneration. In recent decades, there has been a shift from the idea of using biomaterials as passive substitutes for damaged bones towards the concept of biomaterials as aids for the regeneration of a host's own bone tissue. This has generated an important field of research and a range of technological developments. Part one of this book discusses a wide range of materials, including calcium phosphate cements, hydrogels, biopolymers, synthetic polymers, and shape memory polymers. Part two then turns to the processing and surface modification of biomaterials, as well as how biomaterials can be evaluated both for their mechanical properties and for immunocompatibility with the host. Finally, part three covers a variety of cellular approaches, and production and delivery of biomaterials for bone regeneration. Chapters also consider the potential of electromagnetic and ultrasonic stimulation of biomaterials to aid in the regenerative process. Novel Biomaterials for Bone Regeneration represents an important resource for academics, clinicians, and industry professionals working in the area of biomedical materials, providing them with both an overview of the current state-of-the-art, and an indication of potential future developments. Provides comprehensive coverage of novel materials, techniques, and applications of biomaterials for bone regeneration Provides vital information on the various types of materials used in bone regeneration Discusses processing, modification, and evaluation techniques of biomaterials, and looks at cellular approaches and stimulation of biomaterials for bone regeneration

Book Description :

This chapter reviews basic bone biology and bone graft technology to give an insight into the increasingly biomimetic approach being pursued in this field. Many current synthetic bone graft substitute materials have calcium phosphate chemistries reflecting the composition of bone mineral, and hierarchical pore structures similar to cancellous bone. Significant research effort has been devoted to understanding how slight variations in chemistry and pore structure impact a graft material’s ability to support or stimulate bone healing. It appears that the best results are obtained when a graft chemistry or structure is designed to mimic the natural tissue.

Book Description :

"The purpose of this Ph. D. research was to address the clinical need for synthetic bioactive materials to heal defects in non-loaded and loaded bone. Hollow hydroxyapatite (HA) microspheres created in a previous study were evaluated as a carrier for controlled release of bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP2) in bone regeneration. New bone formation in rat calvarial defects implanted with BMP2-loaded microspheres (43%) was significantly higher than microspheres without BMP2 (17%) at 6 weeks postimplantation. Then hollow HA microspheres with a carbonate-substituted composition were prepared to improve their resorption rate. Hollow HA microspheres with ~12 wt. % of carbonate showed significantly higher new bone formation (73 +̲ 8%) and lower residual HA (7 +̲ 2%) than stoichiometric HA microspheres (59 +̲ 2% new bone formation; 21 +̲ 3% residual HA). The combination of carbonate-substituted hollow HA microspheres and clinically-safe doses of BMP2 could provide promising implants for healing non-loaded bone defects. Strong porous scaffolds of bioactive silicate (13-93) glass were designed with the aid of finite-element modeling, created by robocasting and evaluated for loaded bone repair. Scaffolds with a porosity gradient to mimic human cortical bone showed a compressive strength of 88 +̲ 20 MPa, a flexural strength of 34 +̲ 5 MPa and the ability to support bone infiltration in vivo. The addition of a biodegradable polylactic acid (PLA) layer to the external surface of these scaffolds increased their load-bearing capacity in four-point bending by~50% and dramatically enhanced their work of fracture, resulting in a "ductile" mechanical response. These bioactive glass-PLA composites, combining bioactivity, high strength, high work of fracture and an internal architecture conducive to bone infiltration, could provide optimal implants for structural bone repair"--Abstract, page iv.

Abstract:  Strontium (Sr) is not only widely studied for its compound as a drug for treating osteoporosis, but there is also a growing interest of its addition in orthopaedic biomaterials. Over the years, the development of orthopaedic biomaterials has already advanced to a new era in the search of resorbable and/or bioactive materials. Due to its anabolic and anti-resportive properties of Sr on bone regeneration as a drug, strontium has been extensively investigated for its potential in other orthopaedic applications. The purposes of this study were to investigate strontium containing hydroxyapatite (Sr-HA) bone cement for the delivery of gentamicin and the effects of Sr incorporation in coral and borosilicate glass as bone engineering scaffolds. Three types of Sr incorporated materials are reported here, in which these include an applied study of the drug elution property of previously published bone cement and two initial studies of the biological properties of newly developed coral and borosilicate scaffolds. Firstly, the gentamicin release, bioactivity and mechanical property of bioactive bone cement filler based on Sr-HA were compared to a commercially available gentamicin-loaded poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA). Over the study period of 30 days, the cumulative gentamicin release from Sr-HA bone cement was much greater than PMMA bone cement (+ 34%); better bioactivity of Sr-HA was also confirmed with the apatite formation after simulated body fluid immersion. Goniopora, a highly interconnected porous coral, was hydrothermally converted to coralline hydroxyapatite (CHA) or coated with hydroxyapatite and incorporated with Sr. As the first report of incorporating Sr into coral with the structure remained, about 4-16% Sr was detected on CHA. Sr-HA coated coral was studied in vitro and in vivo (ovariectomized rat model) resulting in better cell proliferation and higher scaffold volume retention (+40%). Finally, the development of Sr incorporated borosilicate (SrB) glass scaffold explored a new material for bone tissue engineering, but more importantly, it introduced a phenomenal idea of the stimulatory effect of a local alkaline microenvironment on bone regeneration. Detections of an exceedingly high pH ( pH 8.6) condition on the material surface and release of Sr, Si and B ions during the degradation of scaffold SrB were confirmed to stimulate osteoblasts and facilitate apatite formation. Although new bone was observed on both scaffolds, higher bone area/tissue area (B.Ar/T.Ar) on scaffold SrB indicated more new bone formation over borosilicate scaffold without Sr addition. The significance of this study is to explore and develop three orthopaedic biomaterials advancing the stimulatory effects of Sr on bone regeneration. The drug elution properties of Sr-HA bone cement provides a fascinating alternative for treating osteomyelitis. Furthermore, by incorporating Sr into CHA and borosilicate scaffold, it brings out the importance on the readiness of the Sr release of the materials in order to deliver the stimulatory effects. Subsequently, a localized pH micro-environment arisen by material degradation is emphasized as a controlling factor in bone regeneration on biomaterials. DOI: 10.5353/th_b4723467 Subjects:

Book Description :

A significant proportion of modern medical technology has been developed through biomimetics, which is biologically inspired by studying pre-existing functioning systems in nature. Typical biomimetically inspired biomaterials include nano-biomaterials, smart biomaterials, hybrid biomaterials, nano-biocomposites, hierarchically porous biomaterials and tissue scaffolds. This important book summarises key research in this important field. The book is divided into two parts: Part one is devoted to the biomimetics of biomaterials themselves while part two provides overviews and case studies of tissue engineering applications from a biomimetics' perspective. The book has a strong focus on cutting edge biomimetically inspired biomaterials including chitin, hydrogels, calcium phosphates, biopolymers and anti-thrombotic coatings. Since many scaffolds for skin tissue engineering are biomimetically inspired, the book also has a strong focus on the biomimetics of tissue engineering in the repair of bone, skin, cartilage, soft tissue and specific organs. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Biomimetic biomaterials is a standard reference for both the biomaterials research community and clinicians involved in such areas as bone regeneration, skin tissue and wound repair.
