Objectives: The periosteum plays an indispensable role in both bone formation and bone defect healing. The aim of this project is to produce tissue engineered periosteum for bone defect treatment. Methods: In this study we constructed an artificial in vitro periosteum by incorporating osteogenic differentiated bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) and cobalt chloride (CoCl2)-treated BMSCs. The engineered periostea were implanted both subcutaneously and into skull bone defects in SCID mice to investigate ectopic and orthotopic osteogenesis and vascularisation. After two weeks in subcutaneous and four weeks in bone defect areas, the implanted constructs were assessed for ectopic and orthotopic osteogenesis and vascularisation by micro-CT, histomorphometrical and immunohistochemical methods. Results: The results showed that CoCl2 pre-treated BMSCs induced higher degree of vascularisation and enhanced osteogenesis within the implants in both ectopic and orthotopic areas. Conclusion: This study provided a novel approach using BMSCs sourced from the same patient for both osteogenic and pro-angiogenic purposes in constructing tissue engineered periosteum to enhance vascularized osteogenesis.
