Differential Response of Adult and Embryonic Mesenchymal Progenitor Cells to Mechanical Compression in Hydrogels
TLDR
The influence of dynamic mechanical compression on chondrogenesis of bone marrow‐derived MSCs and embryonic stem cell‐derived cells encapsulated in hydrogels and cultured with or without transforming growth factor β‐1 (TGF‐β1) is evaluated. Expand
Endothelial Differentiation of Mesenchymal Stromal Cells
TLDR
A robust protocol for endothelial differentiation of hMSCs is established, including an immortalized MSC line (iMSCs) which allows for reproducible in vitro analysis in further studies. Expand
3D fiber-deposited scaffolds for tissue engineering: influence of pores geometry and architecture on dynamic mechanical properties.
TLDR
This investigation showed that viscoelastic properties of 3DF scaffolds could be modulated to accomplish mechanical requirements for tailored tissue engineered applications. Expand
Biofabrication: reappraising the definition of an evolving field.
TLDR
A refined working definition of Biofabrication is proposed, including Bioprinting and Bioassembly as complementary strategies within Biofabrica, with special focus on its relation to and application for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine. Expand
Chitosan scaffolds containing hyaluronic acid for cartilage tissue engineering.
TLDR
It is believed that CHT/HA composite matrixes have potential use in cartilage repair and are noncytotoxic and promote cell adhesion. Expand
Biomimetics of the Extracellular Matrix: An Integrated Three-Dimensional Fiber-Hydrogel Composite for Cartilage Tissue Engineering.
TLDR
A novel electrospinning technique is designed to engineer a three dimensional fiber-hydrogel composite that mimics the native ECM structure, is injectable, and has practical macroscale dimensions for clinically relevant tissue defects. Expand
Evaluation of photocrosslinked Lutrol hydrogel for tissue printing applications.
TLDR
After photopolymerization of the modified Lutrol hydrogel, cells remain viable for up to three weeks and retain the ability to differentiate andEncapsulation of cells does not compromise the mechanical properties of the formed gels and multilayered porous LUTrol structures were successfully printed. Expand
Fabrication, Characterization and Cellular Compatibility of Poly(Hydroxy Alkanoate) Composite Nanofibrous Scaffolds for Nerve Tissue Engineering
TLDR
The results of this study demonstrate that aligned PHB/PHBV electrospun nanofibers could find potential use as scaffolds for nerve tissue engineering applications and that the presence of type I collagen in the nan ofibers improves cell differentiation. Expand
Cationic polymers and their therapeutic potential.
TLDR
The most recent scientific advances in cationic polymers and their derivatives not only for gene delivery purposes but also for various alternative therapeutic applications are reviewed. Expand
Fabrication of three-dimensional bioplotted hydrogel scaffolds for islets of Langerhans transplantation.
TLDR
3D bioplotting was used for the fabrication of a 3D alginate-based porous scaffold as an extra-hepatic islet delivery system and INS1E β-cells, human and mouse islets were successfully embedded in 3D-plotted constructs without affecting their morphology and viability, while preventing their aggregation.
