The experimental technique for the repair of bone lesions is based on the construction of tridimensional scaffolds colonized by osteogenic cells prior to the implantation. The optimum material for scaffold construction should allow for the mechanical rigidity until the formation of bone, and the resorption of scaffold thereafter. The material used for scaffold production have to be "stem cell friendly"and moldable into three-dimensional shape. Scaffolds were fabricated from polycaprolactone (PCL) or PCL plus 5% tricalcium phosphate (TCP) using Solid Form Fabrication method with the lay-down pattern of 0 0 /60 0 /120 0 , which resulted in the honeycomb-like structure. Human or rat adipose-derived stromal cells (ADSC) were isolated, phenotypically characterized and expanded in vitro. Plastic-adherent cells (CD29+ CD44+,CD71+, CD90+, CD105+, SH3+, CD31-, CD34-, CD45-), capable of osteogenic differentiation in vitro, were seeded in densities 5 x 10 5 /ml - 5 x 10 6 /ml into scaffolds and cultured in basic medium or medium supplemented with osteogenic stimulators. After 2-6 weeks scaffolds were analyzed microscopically. The in vivo experiment on rats was performed with scaffolds seeded with ADSC isolated from allogeneic and autologous rat donors and implanted in various degrees of proximity from large blood vessel. Results: The preliminary results confirm, that ADSC are able to colonize scaffolds (30% higher expansion rate in PCL + TCP than in PCL alone) and differentiate into osteogenic cell lineage. In vivo implanted scaffolds do not produce any adverse reactions, and integrate with surrounding connective tissue. Several aspects of scaffold construction, cell seeding and differentiation, and in vivo implantation are discussed.
