Low cell engraftment is a major problem in tissue engineering. Although various methods related with cell sheets have been attempted to resolve the issue, low cell viability due to oxygen and nutrient depletion remains an obstacle toward advanced therapeutic applications. Cell therapy using fibroblasts is thought of as a good alternative due to the short doubling times of fibroblasts together with their immunomodulatory properties. Furthermore, three-dimensional (3D) fibroblasts exhibit unique angiogenic and inflammation-manipulating properties that are not present in two-dimensional (2D) forms. However, the therapeutic effect of 3D fibroblasts in tissue regeneration has not been fully elucidated. Macrophage polarization has been widely studied, as it stimulates the transition from the inflammation to the proliferation phase of wound healing. Although numerous strategies have been developed to achieve better polarization of macrophages, the low efficacy of these strategies and safety issues remain problematic. To this end, we introduced a biocompatible flat patch with specifically designed holes that form a spheroids-incorporated human dermal fibroblast sheet (SIS) to mediate the activity of inflammatory cytokines for M2 polarization and increase angiogenic efficacy. We further confirmed in vivo enhancement of wound healing with an SIS-laden skin patch (SISS) compared to conventional cell therapy.

Poly(amino ester)-Based Polymers for Gene and Drug Delivery Systems and Further Application toward Cell Culture System.

Macromol Biosci 2021 Jun 12:e2100106. Epub 2021 Jun 12.

Various synthetic polymers based on poly(amino ester) (PAE) are suggested as candidates for gene and drug delivery owing to their pH-responsiveness, which contributes to efficient delivery performance. PAE-based pH-responsive polymers are more biodegradable and hydrophilic than other types of pH-responsive polymers. The functionality of PAE-based polymers can be reinforced by using different chemical modifications to improve the efficiency of gene and drug delivery. Additionally, PAE-based polymers are used in many ways in the biomedical field, such as in transdermal delivery and stem cell culture systems. Here, the recent novel PAE-based polymers designed for gene and drug delivery systems along with their further applications toward adult stem cell culture systems are reviewed. The synthetic tactics are contemplated and pros and cons of each type of polymer are analyzed, and detailed examples of the different types are analyzed.
