Topic title:Construction of pore diversity in tissue engineering scaffolds and its regulation of bone tissue regeneration


Osteoinduction of biomaterial scaffolds is a special phenomenon of ectopic bone regeneration typically found in porous scaffolds of biomaterials related to calcium phosphate components. It provides an approach to utilize the factors of biomaterial significance to activate the regenerative repair of the tissue itself without any exogenous growth factors. In present research, tissue engineering scaffolds with pore diversity characteristics were constructed by accumulating spherical granules and sugar spheres-leaching process. The relationship between architectural characteristics and ectopic bone formation were investigated by controlling macro-pore shape and size, interconnectivity, pore distribution and surface topography, so as to optimize the porous architectural characteristics of scaffolds, which are critical to cell behavior, vascular growth and osteogenesis. The diversity scaffolds constructed were implanted in dog’s dorsal muscle and abdominal cavity to reveal the influence of both the architectural parameters of scaffolds and implantation sites on the ectopic bone formation in the scaffolds. The harvested results in animal experiments exhibited that the ectopic bone formation in HA scaffolds was significantly mediated by the pore diversity of scaffolds and similar in the two implantation sites. The tissue-engineered bone grafts in non-bony sites were applied to repair femoral defect of dogs.
