Abstract BACKGROUND: The intramedullary cavity is a widely distributed well-vascularized microenvironment capable of sustaining grafts, and is a potential site for islet transplantation. The bone marrow offers sufficient space that may also be suitable for bioartificial pancreas (BAP) implantation. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of bone marrow as an implantation site for BAPs. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A calcium phosphate cement chamber satisfies the criteria for immunoisolation. Mouse insulinoma cells were suspended with agarose gel and enclosed in a calcium phosphate cement chamber to create a BAP, which was implanted in the intramuscular space in diabetic swine or the intramedullary cavity in diabetic dogs. Blood glucose and C-peptide concentrations were determined perioperatively. RESULTS: In the swine, the mean ± SD blood glucose concentration decreased from 413 ± 24 mg/dL to 285 ± 47 mg/dL, and was maintained in the range of 285 to 336 mg/dL for 15 days. It increased to 368 to 450 mg/dL after the BAPs were implanted in the intramuscular space. In the dogs, the blood glucose concentration decreased from 422 ± 32 mg/dL to 247 ± 52 mg/dL, and was maintained in the range of 247 to 347 mg/dL after the BAPs were implanted in the intramedullary cavity. The C-peptide concentration increased from 6.1 ± 2.8 pmol/L to 104.7 ± 16.4 pmol/L when the BAPs were implanted in the intramedullary cavity. CONCLUSION: This study indicates superior effectiveness of BAPs implanted in the intramedullary cavity compared with the intramuscular space. This observation may be attributed to the greater oxygen tension in the bone marrow. The BAPs in direct contact with the circulatory system receive sufficient blood flow for function and survival. This preliminary study demonstrates that the intramedullary cavity may be an implantation site for BAP transplantation. 2010 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

    Classically, the 3’untranslated region (3’UTR) is that region in eukaryotic protein-coding genes from the translation termination codon to the polyA signal. It is transcribed as an integral part of the mRNA encoded by the gene. However, there exists another kind of RNA, which consists of the 3’UTR alone, without all other elements in mRNA such as 5’UTR and coding region. The importance of independent 3’UTR RNA (referred as I3’UTR) was prompted by results of artificially introducing such RNA species into malignant mammalian cells. Since 1991, we found that the middle part of the 3’UTR of the human nuclear factor for interleukin-6 (NF-IL6) or C/EBP gene exerted tumor suppression effect in vivo. Our subsequent studies showed that transfection of C/EBP 3’UTR led to down-regulation of several genes favorable for malignancy and to up-regulation of some genes favorable for phenotypic reversion. Also, it was shown that the sequences near the termini of the C/EBP 3’UTR were important for its tumor suppression activity. Then, the C/EBP 3’UTR was found to directly inhibit the phosphorylation activity of protein kinase CPKC in SMMC-7721, a hepatocarcinoma cell line. Recently, an AU-rich region in the C/EBP 3’UTR was found also to be responsible for its tumor suppression. Recently we have also found evidence that the independent C/EBP 3’UTR RNA is actually exists in human tissues, such as fetal liver and heart, pregnant uterus, senescent fibroblasts etc. Through 1990’s to 2000’s, world scientists found several 3’UTR RNAs that functioned as artificial independent RNAs in cancer cells and resulted in tumor suppression. Interestingly, majority of genes for these RNAs have promoter-like structures in their 3’UTR regions, although the existence of their transcribed products as independent 3’UTR RNAs is still to be confirmed. Our studies indicate that the independent 3’UTR RNA is a novel non-coding RNA species whose function should be the regulation not of the expression of their original mRNA, but of some essential life activities of the cell as a whole.
