Book Description :

Macrophages have long been known to exhibit heterogeneous and plastic phenotypes. They show functional diversity with roles in homeostasis, tissue repair, immunity and disease. There exists a spectrum of macrophage phenotypes with varied effector functions, molecular determinants, cytokine and chemokine profiles, as well as receptor expression. In tumor microenvironments, the subset of macrophages known as tumor-associated macrophages generates byproducts that enhance tumor growth and angiogenesis, making them attractive targets for anti-cancer therapeutics. With respect to wound healing and the foreign body response, there is a necessity for balance between pro-inflammatory, wound healing, and regulatory macrophages in order to achieve successful implantation of a scaffold for tissue engineering. In this review, we discuss the multitude of ways macrophages are known to be important in cancer therapies and implanted biomaterials.

Book Description :

Cell-based medicine is recently attracting extensive attention as a potential therapeutic approach for various diseases. However, major hurdles have prevented their widespread application including but not limited to, the difficulty to expand stem cells while maintaining their pluripotency, dismal cell retention after implanting cells in vivo, and damage induced by the interactions between host and the implanted cells. This dissertation research is aimed to address some of these major challenges facing cell-based medicine. Inspired by the core-shell configuration of early mammalian embryos, we developed a novel coaxial electrospray technology to generate microcapsules with a hydrogel shell of alginate that mimics the zona pellucida, surrounding an aqueous liquid core of living cells in one step. Specifically, murine embryonic stem (ES) cells are encapsulated in the core while maintaining high viability. After expansion in vitro, these cells form a single aggregate in each microcapsule and maintain significantly higher pluripotency with higher capacity for cardiac differentiation than the cells conventionally cultured on 2D substrate or in the homogeneous hydrogel microbeads without a core-shell architecture. It was further found that the bioinspired core-shell microcapsule system encapsulated with cancer cells is significantly better than the conventional suspension culture in ultralow attachment plate (ULAP) for enriching cancer stem-like cells (CSCs). The time for enriching CSCs can be unprecedentedly shortened from 7-10 days to only 2 days with better CSC quality in terms of the expression of surface receptor markers, dye exclusion, gene at the transcript and protein level, and in vivo tumorigenicity. Therefore, this novel approach for enriching CSCS should greatly facilitate cancer research and therapy development, as the CSCs are also known as the tumor reinitiating cells that induce cancer relapse. Further inspired by the natural processes of hatching to release stem cell aggregates out of the zona pellucida and re-encapsulating the cell aggregates in blastocyst for implantation, we released the aggregates out of the alginate hydrogel shell and re-encapsulated each aggregate in a biocompatible and biodegradable micromatrix for injectable delivery to replace myocardial cell lost during experimental myocardial infarction. This method significantly enhances the long-term survival of animals with MI as a result of the temporary immunoisolation of the micromatrix, as well as in situ cardiac regeneration to improve cardiac function by the injected cells. The long-term benefit of temporary immunosuppression as a result of cell encapsulation in biomaterials was also tested with allogeneic T cell transplantation for cancer therapy. We conformally encapsulated the donor T cells within a porous film of chitosan and alginate, and the nanoencapsulation was found not to affect the phenotype of T cells in terms of size, viability, proliferation, cytokine secretion, and cytotoxicity against tumor cells. Leukemic mice transplanted with bone marrow cells (BMCs) and the conformally encapsulated allogeneic T cells exhibited significantly improved survival, due to reduced Graft-versus-Host-Diseases (GVHD) associated with uncompromised Graft-versus-Leukemia (GVL) effect of the donor T cells. This dissertation research demonstrates the great potential of producing bioinspired micro and nanoscale biomaterials for engineering various living cells to facilitate the widespread application of modern cell-based medicine.

Book Description :

After a quarter of century of rapid technological advances, research has revealed the complexity of cancer, a disease intimately related to the dynamic transformation of the genome. However, the full understanding of the molecular onset of this disease is still far from achieved and the search for mechanisms of treatment will follow closely. It is here that Nanotechnology enters the fray offering a wealth of tools to diagnose and treat cancer. In fact, the National Cancer Institute predicts that over the next years, nanotechnology will result in important advances in early detection, molecular imaging, targeted and multifunctional therapeutics, prevention and control of cancer. Nanotechnology offers numerous tools to diagnose and treat cancer, such as new imaging agents, multifunctional devices capable of overcome biological barriers to deliver therapeutic agents directly to cells and tissues involved in cancer growth and metastasis, and devices capable of predicting molecular changes to prevent action against precancerous cells. Nanomaterials-based delivery systems in Theranostics (Diagnostics & Therapy) provide better penetration of therapeutic and diagnostic substances within the body at a reduced risk in comparison to conventional therapies. At the present time, there is a growing need to enhance the capability of theranostics procedures where nanomaterials-based sensors may provide for the simultaneous detection of several gene-associated conditions and nanodevices with the ability to monitor real-time drug action. These innovative multifunctional nanocarriers for cancer theranostics may allow the development of diagnostics systems such as colorimetric and immunoassays, and in therapy approaches through gene therapy, drug delivery and tumor targeting systems in cancer. Some of the thousands and thousands of published nanosystems so far will most likely revolutionize our understanding of biological mechanisms and push forward the clinical practice through their integration in future diagnostics platforms. Nevertheless, despite the significant efforts towards the use of nanomaterials in biologically relevant research, more in vivo studies are needed to assess the applicability of these materials as delivery agents. In fact, only a few went through feasible clinical trials. Nanomaterials have to serve as the norm rather than an exception in the future conventional cancer treatments. Future in vivo work will need to carefully consider the correct choice of chemical modifications to incorporate into the multifunctional nanocarriers to avoid activation off-target, side effects and toxicity. Moreover the majority of studies on nanomaterials do not consider the final application to guide the design of nanomaterial. Instead, the focus is predominantly on engineering materials with specific physical or chemical properties. It is imperative to learn how advances in nanosystem’s capabilities are being used to identify new diagnostic and therapy tools driving the development of personalized medicine in oncology; discover how integrating cancer research and nanotechnology modeling can help patient diagnosis and treatment; recognize how to translate nanotheranostics data into an actionable clinical strategy; discuss with industry leaders how nanotheranostics is evolving and what the impact is on current research efforts; and last but not least, learn what approaches are proving fruitful in turning promising clinical data into treatment realities.
