Gritsch L, Lovell C, Goldmann WH, Boccaccini ARet al., 2018, Do bioresorbable polyesters have antimicrobial properties?, Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, Vol: 29, ISSN: 0957-4530

Biodegradable and bioresorbable polyesters (BBPEs) are a widespread class of aliphatic polymers with a plethora of applications in the medical field. Some reports speculate that these polymers have intrinsic antibacterial activity as a consequence of their acidic degradation by-products. The release of organic acids as a result of the hydrolytic degradation of BBPEs in vivo and the resulting pH drop could be an effective inhibitor of the growth of pathogens in the local environment adjacent to BBPE-based devices. However, there is no clear and conclusive evidence in the literature concerning the antibacterial activity of BBPE to support or refute this hypothesis. In this communication we address this point through an assessment of the antibacterial properties of six well-established commercially available BBPEs. Agar diffusion assays and optical density measurements at 600 nm were performed on all the polymer samples to characterize the growth of bacteria and any potential inhibition over an incubation period of 24 h. The results indicated that BBPEs do not possess an intrinsic and immediate antibacterial activity, which is consistent with the clear mismatch between the time-scales for bacterial growth and the rate of degradation of the polyesters.

Qazi TH, Hafeez S, Schmidt J, Duda GN, Boccaccini AR, Lippens Eet al., 2017, Comparison of the effects of 45S5 and 1393 bioactive glass microparticles on hMSC behavior, Journal of Biomedical Materials Research Part A, Vol: 105, Pages: 2772-2782, ISSN: 1549-3296

Bioactive glasses (BAGs) are highly interesting materials for bone regeneration applications in orthopedic and dental defects. It is quite well known that ionic release from BAGs influences cell behavior and function. Mindful of the clinical scenario, we hypothesized that local cell populations might additionally physically interact with the implanted BAG particles and respond differently than to just the ionic stimuli. We therefore studied the biological effect of two BAG types (45S5 and 1393) applied to human mesenchymal stromal cells (hMSCs) in three distinct presentation modes: (a) direct contact; and to dissolution products in (b) 2D, and (c) 3D culture. We furthermore investigated how the dose-dependence of these BAG particles, in concentrations ranging from 0.1 to 2.5 w/v %, influenced hMSC metabolic activity, proliferation, and cell spreading. These cellular functions were significantly hampered when hMSCs were exposed to high concentrations of either glasses, but the effects were more pronounced in the 45S5 groups and when the cells were in direct contact with the BAGs. Furthermore the biological effect of 1393 BAG outperformed that of 45S5 BAG in all tested presentation modes. These outcomes highlight the importance of investigating cell–BAG interactions in experimental set-ups that recapitulate host cell interactions with BAG particles.

Since lithium (Li+) plays roles in angiogenesis, the localized and controlled release of Li+ ions from bioactive glasses (BGs) represents a promising alternative therapy for the regeneration and repair of tissues with a high degree of vascularization. Here, microparticles from a base 45S5 BG composition containing (wt %) 45% SiO2, 24.5% Na2O, 24.5% CaO, and 6% P2O5, in which Na2O was partially substituted by 5% Li2O (45S5.5Li), were obtained. The results demonstrate that human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) have greater migratory and proliferative response and ability to form tubules in vitro after stimulation with the ionic dissolution products (IDPs) of the 45S5.5Li BG. The results also show the activation of the canonical Wnt/β-catenin pathway and the increase in expression of proangiogenic cytokines insulin like growth factor 1 (IGF1) and transforming growth factor beta (TGFβ). We conclude that the IDPs of 45S5.5Li BG would act as useful inorganic agents to improve tissue repair and regeneration, ultimately stimulating HUVECs behavior in the absence of exogenous growth factors.
