ABSTRACT

Various biomaterials have been used for bone repair and reconstruction of bone defects. Inorganic xenogenic bone substitutes have been intensively studied because they possesses favorable regenerative properties. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the properties of a novel inorganic xenogenic bone substitute, sintered ostrich cancellous bone (SOCB). Bone regeneration capability was also comparing to that of other bone substitutes in rabbit calvarial defects. Biochemical and biomechanical properties of the SOCB ceramic closely resembled those of human bone. Bone regeneration was evaluated by radiograph, histology, and histomorphometry. Bone regeneration was significantly enhanced in defects treated with SOCB when compared with other bone substitutes. The biochemical and biomechanical properties of SOCB are favorable for bone regeneration. SOCB might be a promising biomaterial for the repair of bone defects.

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the properties of a novel inorganic xenogenic bone substitute, calcinated antler cancellous bone (CACB). Physicochemical properties of CACB including surface morphology, phase composition, chemical bond structure, Ca/P ratio and porosity were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction spectroscopy, Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy and nitrogen adsorption analysis, and were found to closely resemble calcinated human cancellous bone. The bone defect repair efficacy of CACB was evaluated in comparison with commercially available bone substitutes (Bio-Oss(®)) within rabbit mandible defects. The gross observation, micro-CT and histology analysis data demonstrated that CACB was efficacious for bone regeneration, and was comparable with Bio-Oss(®) bone substitute in inducing neovascularization and osteogenesis within the mandible defects. CACB can therefore serve as a safe, renewable, and sustainable source of bone graft material, but without the ethical issues pertaining to animal welfare.

    ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Antigen-extracted xenogeneic cancellous bone as a kind of bone implant material has a natural porous structure, plasticity, and certain mechanical strength. OBJECTIVE: To study the biocompatibility of the deer deproteinized cancellous bone. METHODS: Pyrogen test and acute toxicity test: Fresh deer bone, deproteinized cancellous bone, and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone extracts were injected into the ear vein of rabbits and the abdominal cavity of mice. Hemolysis test: Rabbit mixed blood was added into the fresh deer bone, deproteinized cancellous bone, and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone extracts, sodium carbonate (positive control), and normal saline (negative control). Coagulation test: Fresh deer bone, deproteinized cancellous bone, and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone were placed into normal rabbit mixed blood. Long-term muscle test: Fresh deer bone, deproteinized cancellous bone, and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone were implanted into the thigh muscle pouches of mice. RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: Deer deproteinized cancellous bone and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone had no pyrogen reaction, toxicity, hemolysis and hemopexis reactions, and did not result in rejection reaction after implantation to the thigh muscle pouches of mice. There was a mild abnormality for the fresh deer bone in pyrogen, coagulation, hemolysis and long-term muscle tests without death. These findings indicate that deer deproteinized cancellous bone and free-dried deproteinized cancellous bone have good biocompatibility.

    ABSTRACT: Nano-β-tricalcium phosphate/collagen (n-β-TCP/Col) is considered with good osteoconductivity. However, the therapeutic effectiveness of n-β-TCP/Col scaffolds in combination with autologous bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) remains to be elucidated for the repair of critical-sized bone defects. In this study, we found that n-β-TCP/Col scaffolds exhibited high biocompatibility in vitro. The introduction of BMSCs expanded in vitro to the scaffolds dramatically enhanced their efficiency to restore critical-sized bone defects, especially during the initial stage after implantation. Collectively, these results suggest that autologous BMSCs in n-β-TCP/Col scaffolds have the potential to be applied in bone tissue engineering.
