Bone formation was investigated in vitro by culturing rat marrow stromal osteoblasts in biodegradable, macroporous poly(3-hydroxybutyric acid-co-3-bydroxyvaleric acid) (PHBV) matrices over a period of 60 days. Foams were prepared after solvent evaporation and solute leaching. PHBV solutions with different concentrations were prepared in chloroform: dichloromethane (1:2, v/v). In order to create a matrix with high porosity and uniform pore sizes, sieved sucrose crystals (300-500 mum) were used. PHBV foams were treated with rf-oxygen plasma (100W 10min) to modify their surface chemistry and hydrophilicity with the aim of increasing the reattachment of osteoblasts. Osteoblasts were isolated from rat bone marrow and seeded onto PHBV foams. The cell density on and in the foams was determined with MTS assay. NITS results showed that osteoblasts proliferated on PHBV. Twenty-one days after seeding of incubation, growth of osteoblasts on matrices and initiation of mineralization were observed by confocal laser scanning microscopy. Increasing ALP and osteocalcin secretion during 60 days confirmed the osteoblastic phenotype of the derived stromal cells. SEM, histological evaluations and confocal laser scanning microscopy showed that osteoblasts could grow inside the matrices and lead to mineralization. Cells exhibited spindle-like morphology and had a diameter of 10-30 mum. Based on these, it could confidently be stated that PHBV seems to be a promising polymeric matrix material for bone tissue engineering.

In the present study, tissue engineered bone was produced on calcium phosphate loaded collagen and PHBV8 matrices. Osteoblasts isolated from rat bone marrow were characterized by light microscopy, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity, osteocalcin determination assay, and Western blots for integrin. Population doubling time of the cells was found as 50 ± 2 h at 37 °C in a CO2 incubator. PHBV8 foams iiiwere treated with rf-oxygen plasma to modify their surface chemistry and hydrophilicity to increase the reatt...
Bone tissue engineering on patterned collagen films: an in vitro study
Ber, S; Kose, GT; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2005-05-01)
This study aimed at guiding osteoblast cells from rat bone marrow on chemically modified and patterned collagen films to study the influence of pattern, on cell guidance. The films were stabilized using different treatment methods including crosslinking with carbodiimide (EDC) and glutaraldehyde, dehydrothermal treatment (DHT), and deposition of calcium phosphate on the collagen membrane.

This animal study evaluated bone healing around titanium implant surfaces biomimetically coated with bone morphogenic protein-2 (BMP-2) and/or vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) by examining bone matrix proteins and mineralisation. Five different implant surfaces were established: acid-etched surface (AE), biomimetic calcium phosphate surface (CAP), BMP-2 loaded CAP surface, VEGF loaded CAP surface and dual BMP-2 + VEGF loaded CAP surface. The implants were inserted into calvariae of adult domestic p...
Macroporous poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) matrices for bone tissue engineering
Kose, GT; Kenar, H; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2003-05-01)
Macroporous poly(3-hydroxybutyric acid-co-3-hydroxyvaleric acid) (PHBV) matrices were prepared after solvent evaporation and solute leaching. PHBV solutions with different concentrations were prepared in chloroform: dichloromethane (1:2, v/v). In order to create a matrix with high porosity and uniform pore sizes, sieved sucrose crystals (75-300 or 300-500 mum) were used. PHBV foams were treated with rf-oxygen plasma to modify their surface chemistry and hydrophilicity with the aim of increasing the reattach...
Tissue engineering of bone on micropatterned biodegradable polyester films
Kenar, H; Kose, GT; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat (2006-02-01)
In this study, the effect of cell alignment on proliferation and phenotype expression of rat bone marrow derived osteoblasts on micropatterned (MP) PHBV and P(L/D,L)LA films with 27 mu m wide parallel microgrooves was investigated. Immobilization of fibrinogen (Fb) on film surface by adsorption increased hydrophilicity, while covalent immobilization decreased it. Amount of Fb immobilized was significantly higher upon covalent bonding (153.1 +/- 42.4 mu g Fb/cm(2)) than when adsorbed (10.0 +/- 3.3 mu g Fb/cm...
