Collagen-chondroitin sulfate-based PLLA-SAIB-coated rhBMP-2 delivery system for bone repair

Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) are osteoinductive proteins used intensively in clinical investigations involving various bone-related treatments. Owing to their high potential in new bone formation they require local application at the treatment site. For this purpose various controlled delivery systems with BMPs as the excipients have been prepared in recent years. Focusing on this clinical need a disc-shaped BMP carrier was designed as a local delivery system using soluble collagen and chondroitin sulfate. In situ release studies carried out with a model protein (FITC-labeled Protein A) presented a very high rate of release; with most of the protein content being released within 24h. This rate could be decreased by providing a poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) and sucrose acetate isobutyrate-based (SAIB-based) coat around the release system, applied after BMP loading. In this way, it was possible to extend the release period from 24 h to about 12 days. In situ release of BMP from the same carriers, as quantitated using an ELISA kit, was even slower, with 50% of the protein being released in 15 days.


Folic acid functionalized PEG coated magnetic nanoparticles for targeting anti-cancer drug delivery: Preparation, characterization and cytotoxicity on Doxorubicin, Zoledronic acid and Paclitaxel resistant MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines

In this study, MNPs were synthesized, coated with biocompatible polyethylene glycol (PEG) and conjugated with folic acid. Crystal and chemical structures, shape, size and magnetic properties of synthesized nanoparticles were characterized. Agglomeration tendency of naked nanoparticles were prevented by oleic acid addition during the synthesis. All synthesized MNPs have been found to exhibit superparamagnetic behavior at 23 degrees C and 37 degrees C. Cytotoxic effects of MNPs were investigated on Doxorubici...

Poly (I:C), which is a synthetic double-stranded RNA, have significant toxicity on tumor cells. The immobilization of Poly (I:C) onto nanoparticles is important for the fabrication of targeted delivery systems. In this study, different generations of newly synthesized PAMAM dendron-coated magnetic nanoparticles (DcMNP) which can be targeted to the tumor site under magnetic field were efficiently loaded for the first time with Poly (I:C). Different generations of DcMNPs (G(2), G(3), G(4), G(5), G(6), and G(7...
Enantioselective synthesis of new chiral 2-aziridinyl phosphonates and studies of their biological activities
Doğan, Özdemir; Beksultanova, Nurzhan; ALTANLAR, NURTEN; Simsek, Duygu; KARABIYIK, HASAN (2017-02-15)
A new series of chiral aziridinyl phosphonates has been synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial and antifungal activities. For the synthesis, a Gabriel-Cromwell reaction was used to form aziridinyl phosphonates in 52-83% yield. In order to evaluate antibacterial and antifungal activities, MIC values were measured. Although most of the compounds showed insignificant activity, two of them provided low to moderate antifungal activity.
Speciation of Selenium in Supplements by High Performance Liquid Chromatography-Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometry
BAKIRDERE, Sezgin; Volkan, Mürvet; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2015-06-13)
Anion and cation exchange high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) were used for speciation of selenium in supplements. All the parameters in the extraction, separation, and determination procedures were optimized. Recovery studies for the selenium species from the anion and cation exchange columns were performed and there were no analyte losses. Limits of detection for selenium(IV), selenium(VI), Se in selenomethionine, and Se in sele...
Collagen scaffolds with in situ-grown calcium phosphate for osteogenic differentiation of Wharton's jelly and menstrual blood stem cells
Karadas, Ozge; Yucel, Deniz; Kenar, Halime; Kose, Gamze Torun; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2014-07-01)
The aim of this research was to investigate the osteogenic differentiation potential of non-invasively obtained human stem cells on collagen nanocomposite scaffolds with in situ-grown calcium phosphate crystals. The foams had 70% porosity and pore sizes varying in the range 50-200 mu m. The elastic modulus and compressive strength of the calcium phosphate containing collagen scaffolds were determined to be 234.5 kPa and 127.1 kPa, respectively, prior to in vitro studies. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) obtain...
