Mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds for efficient delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor
Wu, Chengtie, Fan, Wei, Chang, Jiang, & Xiao, Yin (2013) Mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds for efficient delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor. Journal of Biomaterials Applications, 28(3), pp. 367-374.
In this article, we, for the first time, investigated mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds for the delivery of vascular endothelial growth factor. We have found that mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds have significantly higher loading efficiency and more sustained release of vascular endothelial growth factor than non-mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds. In addition, vascular endothelial growth factor delivery from mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds has improved the viability of endothelial cells. The study has suggested that mesopore structures in mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds play an important role in improving the loading efficiency, decreasing the burst release, and maintaining the bioactivity of vascular endothelial growth factor, indicating that mesoporous bioactive glass scaffolds are an excellent carrier of vascular endothelial growth factor for potential bone tissue engineering applications.
