Book Description :

The use of biomaterials has become indispensable in modern medicine that includes primarily for the restoration of function as well as drug carriers. Biomaterials developed for bone, cartilage, ligament, tendon, skeletal muscle, dental, and other musculoskeletal applications almost always necessitate mechanical properties characterization to guarantee that they are robust enough for their in vivo functionality. In addition, mechanical conditioning often has a direct consequence on cellular behaviors such as differentiation, extracellular matrix production, migration, and proliferation. There is imperative necessity to get real-time data of tissue development in vivo in response to various biomechanical stimuli such as tension/compression, bending, torsion, and steady or dynamic fluid flow of construct that allows experimental protocol changes to be made early. In vitro characterization is unable to exhibit the tissue response to materials, instead being limited to the response of individual cell lines or primary cells taken from animals. Considering the wide and ever-increasing use of biomaterials in different fields of veterinary and medical sciences with its effective use in emerging fields, the characterization in respect to cellular response in the living system and its effect thereafter for leading a physiologic life, a comprehensive understanding have to be developed in totality. Further, implant safety such as avoidance of adverse tissue reaction and resistance to wear and corrosion are of high clinical significance for implants used in long-term clinical situations. The characterization along with related factors like histological, histomorphological, biochemical, radiological, scanning and transmission electron microscopic, fluorochrome labelling, biomechanical, micro-CT analysis, immunohistochemistry in orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery have been tried to elucidate with emphasis on in vivo applications of biomaterials. Amid various characterization parameters, histology is one of the most important tools to assess cellular reactions in the implant–tissue interface that can be carried out by both undecalcified and decalcified bone specimens. Histomorphometry can directly help in quantitative measurement (percentage) of newly formed bone in the implanted scaffold using semiautomatic image analysis software and also sometimes determines the host's vascularization. Histochemistry can be used to observe connective tissue ingrowth within the scaffold. The morphology and the proliferating cells can be evaluated by immunohistochemical technique. Biochemical markers like serum calcium, phosphorus, alkaline phosphatase, and osteocalcin help in evaluating the progress of healing and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase for determining the osteoclasts activity. To understand the mechanisms of unusual bone remodelling, a number of different fluorescent stains like calcein green, tetracycline, alizarin red derivatives and xylenol orange have been developed to detect and quantify bone mineralization. Angiogenesis within the scaffold can be observed and quantified by angiography, osteomedullography, micro-CT, immunostaining with von Willebrand factor stain and intravital microscopy. Biomechanical testing is essential for quantitative assessment of implant integration and contact percentage between implant materials with the host tissue and can be performed by pull-out or push-out tests. Surface analysis and the interaction with bone tissue can be best detected by scanning electron microscopy. Non-invasive techniques include radiological, micro-CT analysis, densitometry study and ultrasound elasticity imaging (UEI). Radiological study helps to assess the union at the host bone–implant interfaces during the follow-up period and should be carried out at regular and calculated interval. Micro-CT is also a non-invasive technique and has great potential in characterization of biomaterials in regard to pore size and spatial distribution of newly formed bone together with quantitative information. Densitometric evaluation is helpful for estimating bone mineral content and density. UEI provides more information of scaffold degradation and tissue development. Finally, targeted delivery system needs quantitative measurements of biodistributable materials which can be best accomplished by computed tomography (CT), fluorescence imaging, inductively coupled atomic emission spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry, micro-positron emission tomography, MRI imaging, and radiography. This chapter is primarily on hands-on experience in surgical manipulation of different biomaterials like hydroxyapatite, tricalcium phosphate, bioactive glass, metals, chitosan, as well as natural coralline hydroxyapatite. Different characterization techniques elaborated in this chapter can show a road map to the researchers, scientists, teachers and readers in this field of biomaterials to understand fundamental aspects of materials and related tissue response to the system in vivo. It can also provide clues for further research in the future towards this emerging field.

Book Description :

Biomaterials have existed for millennia as mechanical replacement structures following disease or injury. Biomaterial design has changed markedly from structural support with an “inert immune profile as the primary objective to designs that elicit an integrative local tissue response and a pro-repair immune cell phenotype. Immunomodulatory Biomaterials: Regulating the Immune Response with Biomaterials to Affect Clinical Outcome offers a single, comprehensive reference on biomaterials for modulation of the host response, for materials scientists, tissue engineers and those working in regenerative medicine. This book details methods, materials and strategies designed to regulate the host immune response following surgical implantation and thus facilitate specific local cell infiltration and tissue deposition. There has been a dramatic transformation in our understanding of the role of the immune system, both innate and adaptive; these changes include recognition of the plasticity of immune cells, especially macrophages, cross-talk between the immune system and stem cells, and the necessity for in situ transition between inflammatory and regulatory immune cell phenotypes. The exploitation of these findings and the design and manufacture of new biomaterials is occurring at an astounding pace. There is currently no book directed at the interdisciplinary principles guiding the design, manufacture, testing, and clinical translation of biomaterials that proactively regulate the host tissue immune response. The challenge for academia, industry, and regulatory agencies to encourage innovation while assuring safety and maximizing efficacy has never been greater. Given the highly interdisciplinary requirements for the design, manufacture and use of immunomodulatory biomaterials, this book will prove a useful single resource across disciplines. Holistically covers the design, manufacture, testing, and clinical translation of biomaterials that proactively regulate the host tissue immune response Provides a single reference for understanding and utilizing the host response in biomaterials design An international collaboration of leading researchers in the field offering a novel insight into this fast-growing area

Book Description :

The development of biomaterials as a powerful regulator of the cellular microenvironment for application in drug discovery/delivery, tissue engineering, and implant biology, requires a better understanding of cell-surface interactions at macro, micro, and nanometre levels. Cell–substrate interactions are multifaceted, involving the integration of various physical and biochemical signals. The interactions among these micro-environmental factors cannot be facilely elucidated and quantified by conventional experimentations, and this necessitates multifactorial strategies. A major task in the biomaterials field would be to develop advanced tools that can offer greater insight into characterizing the cellular behavior and interactions on the material interface. Obtaining this information is crucial in taking biomaterial science to new realms for biomedical applications. The contribution of molecular techniques to elucidate the cell–biomaterial interactions is indispensable on the time-course and level of expression of particular genes that determine cellular phenotype. The amalgamation of multiple disciplines has already produced many interesting techniques and approaches for the cell–biomaterial characterization, of which we have tried to provide a comprehensive and integrated description. The main focus of this book chapter is to explore the toolbox contents available in elucidating the cell–biomaterial interactions. We brief about the topographical, mechanical and biochemical changes faced by a cell upon the rendezvous of any surface in particular with the cell–biomaterial interface. The material characteristics playing cards in directing cellular behavior are straightened out. We also discuss the current knowledge of how a cell can interact with a substrate at the nanoscale and the effect of size, morphology, organization and separation of nanofeatures on cell response.

The generation of tridimensional tissues, assembled from scaffolding materials populated with biologically functional cells, is the great challenge and hope of tissue bioengineering and regenerative medicine. The generation of biomaterials capable of harnessing the immune system has been particularly successful. This book provides a comprehensive view of how immune cells can be manipulated to suppresses inflammation, deliver vaccines, fight cancer cells, promote tissue regeneration or inhibit blood clotting and bacterial infections by functionally engineered biomaterials. However, long-lived polymers, such as those employed in orthopedic surgery or vascular stents, can often induce an immune reaction to their basic components. As a result, this book is also an important step towards coming to understand how to manipulate biomaterials to optimize their beneficial effects and downplay detrimental immune responses.

Book Description :

The surface modification of biomaterials plays a significant role in determining the outcome of biological-material interactions. With the appropriate modification a material’s surface can be tailored to improve biocompatibility, adhesion and cell interactions. Consequently surface modification is vital in the development and design of new biomaterials and medical devices. Surface modification of biomaterials reviews both established surface modifications and those still in the early stages of research and discusses how they can be used to optimise biological interactions and enhance clinical performance. Part one begins with chapters looking at various types and techniques of surface modification including plasma polymerisation, covalent binding of poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG), heparinisation, peptide functionalisation and calcium phosphate deposition before going on to examine metal surface oxidation and biomaterial surface topography to control cellular response with particular reference to technologies, cell behaviour and biomedical applications. Part two studies the analytical techniques and applications of surface modification with chapters on analysing biomaterial surface chemistry, surface structure, morphology and topography before moving onto discuss modifying biomaterial surfaces to optimise interactions with blood, control infection, optimise interactions with soft tissues, repair and regenerate nerve cells, control stem cell growth and differentiation and to optimise interactions with bone. The distinguished editor and international team of contributors to Surface modification of biomaterials have produced a unique overview and detailed chapters on a range of surface modification techniques which will provide an excellent resource for biomaterials researchers and scientists and engineers concerned with improving the properties of biomaterials. It will also be beneficial for academics researching surface modification.

Book Description :

Biotechnology has the potential to improve people’s quality of life and holds the key to many unmet clinical needs. In the UK alone the biotechnology market is worth £4.5 billion and estimates of future growth range from 10 to 15%. This growth can only be driven by the increased use of inexpensive and easy to manufacture polymeric biomaterials. Although polymer science is a rapidly developing area of research, it remains that one of the most intractable problems encountered in biotechnology is that the performance of polymeric biomaterials depend upon both the bulk and surface properties. In this book the authors describe their work using lasers to modify the wettability characteristics of nylon 6,6 (as wetting is often the primary factor dictating the adhesion and bonding potential of materials) as a route to enhancing the surface in terms of in vitro osteoblast cell response. What is more, modifying wettability characteristics in this way is shown to be a highly attractive means of estimating the biofunctionality of a polymer. The book demonstrates and explains how the generation of a biomimetic surface on polymers using laser beams provides an in vitro platform on which to deposit and grow cells for either the development of implants or to reconstitute functional tissue. The correlative trends and generic characteristics which are identified in the book between the laser surface treatment, wettability characteristics and osteoblast cell response of the nylon 6,6 provide a means to estimate the osteoblast cell response in vivo. The book shows clearly that laser surface modification of polymeric materials has tremendous potential for application within the field of regenerative medicine.
