Millions of people are affected by retinal diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and retinitis pigmentosa (RP, night blindness). Retinal tissue engineering has potential to become a valid therapeutic approach to regenerate retina. The aim of this study was to construct a biomimetic retinal tissue substitute by using biocompatible and natural polymers and in vitro techniques. For this purpose, a retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cell monolayer was formed on an electrospun silk fibroin mesh to mimic Bruch’s membrane. Results showed that RPE could proliferate and form a cell layer on the fibroin mesh. A HUVEC layer was constructed separately by microfabrication of a fractal tree design using photocrosslinkable methacrylated hyaluronic acid (HAMA) hydrogel to mimic the vasculature of choroid. To improve HUVEC adhesion in the design methacrylated collagen and methacrylated gelatin were immobilized in them using photolithography. It was seen that HUVEC could adhere only on the microchannels of the pattern and, form tubular structures at late culture periods. The co-culture studies in non-contact mode due to separation of the two cell types by the fibrous mat demonstrated that RPE cells on Bruch’s membrane could change the cell morphology, proliferation and thickness of vascular pattern that was formed by HUVECs in microchannels.

In this study, strong magnetic featured silica coated Cobalt ferrite (CoFe204) nanoparticles were labeled with 2-deoxy glucose (2-DG) for better targetting to cancer cells and the molecular effects of these prepared magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) were investigated in cancer cell lines. In this study, in vitro characterization of 2-DG labelled MNPs were carried out in breast cancer cells (MDA-MB-231 breast cancer and normal cell MCF10A), and cellular uptake mechanisms, genotoxicity, intracellular levels of ox...

One of the main problems of current cancer chemotherapy is the lack of selectivity of anti-cancer drugs to tumor cells which leads to systemic toxicity and adverse side effects. In order to overcome these limitations, researches on controlled drug delivery systems have gained much attention. Nanoscale based drug delivery systems provide tumor targeting. Among many types of nanocarriers, superparamagnetic nanoparticles with their biocompatible polymer coatings can be targeted to an intented site by an extern...

Cancer is the most serious disease of in this century and death rates due cancer are increasing rapidly. Since the conventional cancer treatment techniques like chemotherapy, radiation therapy and surgical operations are not sufficiently efficient and they even are harmful for healthy tissues, there is an urgent need for effective treatment techniques with minimal or no side effects. Controlled drug delivery systems are offered as an alternative approach to cancer therapy that helps prevent excessive drug u...
Retinal pigment epithelium cell culture on surface modified poly(hydroxybutyrate-co-hydroxyvalerate) thin films

There is currently no effective treatment for the retinal disorders caused by retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) degeneration. Transplantation of allografts is the main strategy towards correction of this malady. Tissue engineering could offer hope and involve the use of biodegradable polymeric templates to replace diseased or lost RPE. In this study PHBV8 film was chosen as a temporary substrate for growing retinal pigment epithelium cells as an organized monolayer before their subretinal transplantation. Th...
