Bioreactors for Vocal Fold Tissue Engineering


author keywords: vocal fold; bioreactor; lamina propria; gene expression; fibrosis; inflammation
MeSH headings : Biocompatible Materials; Bioreactors; Cicatrix; Humans; Tissue Engineering / methods; Vocal Cords / pathology; Vocal Cords / physiology
TL;DR: An in-depth analysis of VF bioreactor data to date reveals that mechanical stimulation significantly influences cell viability and the expression of pro-inflammatory and pro-fibrotic genes in vitro. (via Semantic Scholar)

2022 article

Towards a standardized multi-tissue decellularization protocol for the derivation of extracellular matrix materials

Biehl, A., Martins, A. M. G. M., Davis, Z. G. G., Sze, D., Collins, L., Mora-Navarro, C., … Freytes, D. O. O. (2022, December 12). BIOMATERIALS SCIENCE, Vol. 12.

MeSH headings : Tissue Engineering / methods; Proteomics; Extracellular Matrix / chemistry; Hydrogels / chemistry; Biocompatible Materials / analysis; Tissue Scaffolds
TL;DR: The present study is the first proof-of-concept towards the development of a standardized protocol that can be used to derive multiple ECM biomaterials via a previously established automated system and showed gelation and rheological properties consistent with previous ECM hydrogels.

2021 journal article

Transcriptome-targeted analysis of human peripheral blood-derived macrophages when cultured on biomaterial meshes


author keywords: surgical meshes; macrophage polarization; biomaterials; targeted transcriptome; poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB); polypropylene
MeSH headings : Anti-Inflammatory Agents / chemistry; Biocompatible Materials / chemistry; Cell Culture Techniques; Cell Differentiation; Cell Separation; Cells, Cultured; Flow Cytometry; Gene Expression Profiling; Humans; Hydroxybutyrates; Immunity, Innate; In Vitro Techniques; Inflammation; Macrophages / drug effects; Macrophages / metabolism; Materials Testing; Monocytes / cytology; Phenotype; Polypropylenes / chemistry; Prostheses and Implants; RNA / metabolism; Surgical Mesh; Tissue Scaffolds; Transcriptome; Treatment Outcome; Up-Regulation; Wound Healing
TL;DR: In vitro evidence is provided for the early transcriptomic targeted signature of human Mφs upon two commonly used surgical meshes and suggests a transition from an inflammatory to a non-inflammatory phenotype by P4HB as well as an upregulation of genes annotated under the pathogen response pathway.
