Alendronate-Anionic Clay Nanohybrid for Enhanced Osteogenic Proliferation and Differentiation.

J Korean Med Sci 2019 Feb 25;34(5):e37. Epub 2019 Jan 25.

Department of Chemistry and Nanoscience, Center for Intelligent Nano-Bio Materials, Ewha Womans University, Seoul, Korea.

Background: Alendronate (AL), a drug for inhibiting osteoclast-mediated bone-resorption, was intercalated into an inorganic drug delivery nanovehicle, layered double hydroxide (LDH), to form a new nanohybrid, AL-LDH, with 1:1 heterostructure along the crystallographic C-axis. Based on the intercalation reaction strategy, the present AL-LDH drug delivery system (DDS) was realized with an enhanced drug efficacy of AL, which was confirmed by the improved proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of osteoblast-like cells (MG63).

Methods: The AL-LDH nanohybrid was synthesized by conventional ion-exchange reaction and characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy. Read More
