Calcium silicate-based cements cause environmental stiffness and show diverse potential to induce osteogenesis in human osteoblastic cells.

Sci Rep 2021 Aug 18;11(1):16784. Epub 2021 Aug 18.

Department of Dentistry, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Brasília (UnB), Campus Universitário Darcy Ribeiro, Asa Norte, Brasília, DF, 70910-900, Brazil.

Calcium silicate-based cements differ markedly in their radiopacifiers and the presence of calcium sulfate, aluminates, carbonates and other components that can affect their biological properties. This study aimed to compare the biological properties of six calcium silicate cements in human osteoblastic cell culture (Saos-2 cells): Bio-C Repair (Bio-C), PBS HP (PBS-HP), Biodentine (Biodentine), MTA Repair HP (MTA-HP), NeoMTA Plus (NeoMTA-P), and ProRoot MTA (ProRoot). After exposure to these materials, the cells were analyzed by MTT, wound healing, cell migration, and alkaline phosphatase activity (ALP) assays, real-time PCR (qPCR) analysis of the osteogenesis markers (osteocalcin or bone gamma-carboxyglutamate protein, BGLAP; alkaline phosphatase, ALPL; bone sialoprotein or secreted phosphoprotein 1, BNSP), and alizarin red staining (ARS).

Repair of defective hard-tissues in osteoporotic patients faces significantly challenges with limited therapeutic options. Although biomedical cements are considered promising materials for healthy bone repair, their uses for healing osteoporotic fracture are clinically limited. Herein, strontium-releasing-nanoscale cement was introduced to provide dual therapeutic-actions (pro-osteogenesis and anti-osteoclastogenesis), eventually for the regeneration of osteoporotic bone defect.

Department of Physiology and Biomedical Engineering, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA; Department of Orthopedic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN, 55905, USA. Electronic address:

Injectable polymers have attracted intensive attention in tissue engineering and drug delivery applications. Current injectable polymer systems often require free-radical or heavy-metal initiators and catalysts for the crosslinking process, which may be extremely toxic to the human body. Here, we report a novel polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxane (POSS) based strain-promoted alkyne-azide cycloaddition (SPAAC) "click" organic-inorganic nanohybrids (click-ON) system that can be click-crosslinked without any toxic initiators or catalysts.

Gene Therapy Using Adeno-Associated Virus Serotype 8 Encoding TNAP-D Improves the Skeletal and Dentoalveolar Phenotypes in Alpl Mice.

J Bone Miner Res 2021 Sep 15;36(9):1835-1849. Epub 2021 Jun 15.

Sanford Children's Health Research Center, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, La Jolla, CA, USA.

Hypophosphatasia (HPP) is caused by loss-of-function mutations in the ALPL gene that encodes tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase (TNAP), whose deficiency results in the accumulation of extracellular inorganic pyrophosphate (PP ), a potent mineralization inhibitor. Skeletal and dental hypomineralization characterizes HPP, with disease severity varying from life-threatening perinatal or infantile forms to milder forms that manifest in adulthood or only affect the dentition. Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) using mineral-targeted recombinant TNAP (Strensiq/asfotase alfa) markedly improves the life span, skeletal phenotype, motor function, and quality of life of patients with HPP, though limitations of ERT include frequent injections due to a short elimination half-life of 2.

Xenogeneic dentin matrix as a scaffold for biomineralization and induced odontogenesis.

Biomed Mater 2021 May 14;16(4). Epub 2021 May 14.

Department of Stomatology, Beijing Shijitan Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing, People's Republic of China.

Commonly recognized mechanisms of the xenogeneic-extracellular matrix-based regenerative medicine include timely degradation, release of bioactive molecules, induced differentiation of stem cells, and well-controlled inflammation. This process is most feasible for stromal tissue reconstruction, yet unsuitable for non-degradable scaffold and prefabricated-shaped tissue regeneration, like odontogenesis.

Stem Cell Res Ther 2021 04 6;12(1):225. Epub 2021 Apr 6.

National & Local Joint Engineering Research Center of Biodiagnosis and Biotherapy, Precision Medicine Institute, The Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi'an Jiaotong University, No.157 Xiwu Road, Xi'an, 710004, China.

Background: Premature exfoliation of the deciduous teeth is a common manifestation in childhood patients with hypophosphatasia (HPP), which is an autosomal inherited disease caused by ALPL mutations. Dysplasia of the cementum, dentin, and alveolar bone has been proposed to be the main reasons for the exfoliation of teeth, while the extraordinarily complex intracellular mechanisms remain elusive. Dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) have been demonstrated to successfully regenerate functional pulp-dentin-like tissue. Read More

Weintraub Center for Reconstructive Biotechnology, Division of Advanced Prosthodontics, UCLA School of Dentistry, Los Angeles, CA 90095-1668, USA.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)-based acrylic bone cement is commonly used to fix bone and metallic implants in orthopedic procedures. The polymerization initiator tri-n-butylborane (TBB) has been reported to significantly reduce the cytotoxicity of PMMA-based bone cement compared to benzoyl peroxide (BPO). However, it is unknown whether this benefit is temporary or long-lasting, which is important to establish given that bone cement is expected to remain in situ permanently. Read More

Dimethyloxallyl glycine/nanosilicates-loaded osteogenic/angiogenic difunctional fibrous structure for functional periodontal tissue regeneration.

Bioact Mater 2021 Apr 26;6(4):1175-1188. Epub 2020 Oct 26.

Department of Periodontology, School and Hospital of Stomatology, Cheeloo College of Medicine, Shandong University & Shandong Key Laboratory of Oral Tissue Regeneration & Shandong Engineering Laboratory for Dental Materials and Oral Tissue Regeneration, Jinan, Shandong, 250012, China.

The coupled process of osteogenesis-angiogenesis plays a crucial role in periodontal tissue regeneration. Although various cytokines or chemokines have been widely applied in periodontal tissue engineering, most of them are macromolecular proteins with the drawbacks of short effective half-life, poor stability and high cost, which constrain their clinical translation. Our study aimed to develop a difunctional structure for periodontal tissue regeneration by incorporating an angiogenic small molecule, dimethyloxalylglycine (DMOG), and an osteoinductive inorganic nanomaterial, nanosilicate (nSi) into poly (lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) fibers by electrospinning.
