Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) seeded on the scaffolds successfully differentiated to osteoblasts without using any a differential medium. The mats showed a small burst of β-carotene (24–27%) during the first day and a sustained slow release up to 21 days. The MTT and SEM resul...

This study provided a novel mechanism of forming interpenetrating network (IPN) of gelatin methacryloyl (GelMA) and CS hydrogels by covalent bonds and hydrophobic interactions through photocrosslinking and basification, respectively. By characterization of the compressive and tensile moduli, ultimate tensile stress and strain, it was found that semi-IPN and IPN structure can greatly enhance the mechanical properties of GelMA-CS hydrogels compared to the single network CS or GelMA. Moreover, the increase of either GelMA or CS concentration can strengthen the hydrogel network. Then, the swelling, enzymatic degradation, and m...

In this study, changes in the molecular structure of UV/ozone-modified polystyrene were characterized to optimize the surface chemistry for iPSC. Mouse iPSCs (miPSCs) were cultured on the UV/ozone-modified polystyrene substrates without feeder layers. As a result, large polymeric chains of polystyrene were dissociated into small polymeric chains and oxidized to form ester and carboxylic acid functional groups by the UV/ozone treatment. Moreover, it was suggested that optimal valance of these modified molecules enabled the feeder- and matrix coating-free culture of miPSC with maintaining pluripotency.

Authors: Meng H, Lockshin C, Jain S, Shaligram U, Martinez J, Genkin D, Hill DB, Ehre C, Clark D, Hoppe H Abstract While protein therapeutics are invaluable in managing numerous diseases, many require frequent injections to maintain therapeutically effective concentrations, due to their short half-life in circulation. PolyXen™, a platform technology employing biodegradable, non-immunogenic and hydrophilic polysialic acids (PSA) for drug delivery, is being utilized to overcome such limitations, thereby enabling the clinical utility of a broad range of protein therapeutics. Here, we report the recent progress o...
