Abstract
I njectable biomaterials are desirable for many clinical tissue repair and regeneration. Here we report a unique injectable system in which the biomimetic nano-fibrous microspheres (NF-MS) serve both as an injectable cell carrier and as a growth factor carrier for bone tissue regeneration. The NF-MS were fabricated by a novel approach, which integrated an emulsification and a thermally induced phase separation technique. The NF-MS mimicked the architecture of natural collagen fibers at a nanometer scale and had many unique properties including extraordinarily high surface area and extremely low density. Growth factors were effectively encapsulated into the NF-PLLA microspheres through a simple process without using any organic solvent. In vitro release kinetics indicated that the encapsulated recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein 7 (rhBMP-7) in the NF- MS were released in a temporal controlled manner. When used as an injectable scaffold for repairing the rat critical-size calvarial defects, the rhBMP-7-loaded NF-MS induced a much more significant amount of new bone formation than the rhBMP-7-free NF-MS control. We conclude that the biomimetic NF-MS combined with the controlled growth factor release is an excellent cell carrier for bone regeneration
