Therapeutic angiogenesis using zinc oxide nanoflowers for the treatment of hind limb ischemia in rat model.

Biomed Mater 2021 Mar 3. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Biomaterials Group, LST Division, CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Uppal Road, Tarnaka, Hyderabad 500007, AP, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, 500007, INDIA.

Critical limb ischemia (CLI) is considered as a severe type of peripheral artery diseases (PADs) which occurs due to the inadequate supply of blood to the limb extremities. CLI patients often suffer from extreme cramping pain, impaired wound healing, immobility, cardiovascular complications, amputation of the affected limb and even death. The conventional therapy for the treatment of CLI includes surgical revascularization as well as restoring angiogenesis using growth factor therapy. Read More

Potential Therapeutic Application of Zinc Oxide Nanoflowers in the Cerebral Ischemia Rat Model through Neuritogenic and Neuroprotective Properties.

Bioconjug Chem 2020 03 25;31(3):895-906. Epub 2020 Feb 25.

Department of Applied Biology, CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Uppal Road, Tarnaka, Hyderabad 500007, India.

Neuritogenesis, a complex process of the sprouting of neurites, plays a vital role in the structural and functional restoration of cerebral ischemia-injured neuronal tissue. Practically, there is no effective long-term treatment strategy for cerebral ischemia in clinical practice to date due to several limitations of conventional therapies, facilitating the urgency to develop new alternative therapeutic approaches. Herein, for the first time we report that pro-angiogenic nanomaterials, zinc oxide nanoflowers (ZONF), exhibit neuritogenic activity by elevating mRNA expression of different neurotrophins, following PI3K/Akt-MAPK/ERK signaling pathways.

Investigation of the role of nitric oxide driven angiogenesis by zinc oxide nanoflowers.

J Mater Chem B 2017 May 24;5(18):3391-3403. Epub 2017 Apr 24.

Department of Chemical Biology, CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, Uppal Road, Tarnaka, Hyderabad - 500007, Telangana State, India.

Angiogenesis is a vital process that deals with the generation of new blood vessels from pre-existing vasculature and is well known to regulate various physiological as well as pathophysiological processes. We demonstrated that zinc oxide nanoflowers (ZONF) exhibited pro-angiogenic properties in endothelial cells through the production of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), especially HO (hydrogen peroxide). The immense importance of angiogenesis in ischemic and cardiovascular diseases highlights an urgent need to comprehend the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying the ZONF induced angiogenesis process.
