Bioprinting and regeneration of auricular cartilage using a bioactive bioink based on microporous photocrosslinkable acellular cartilage matrix

Bioactive Materials 2022 Volume 16, Pages 66-81

Tissue engineering provides a promising strategy for auricular reconstruction. Although the first international clinical breakthrough of tissue-engineered auricular reconstruction has been realized based on polymer scaffolds, this approach has not been recognized as a clinically available treatment because of its unsatisfactory clinical efficacy. This is mainly since reconstruction constructs easily cause inflammation and deformation. In this study, we present a novel strategy for the development of biological auricle equivalents with precise shapes, low immunogenicity, and excellent mechanics using auricular chondrocytes and a bioactive bioink based on biomimetic microporous methacrylate-modified acellular cartilage matrix (ACMMA) with the assistance of gelatin methacrylate (GelMA),…

Effect of Polymer Binder on the Synthesis and Properties of 3D-Printable Particle-Based Liquid Materials and Resulting Structures

ACS Omega 2019 Volume 4, Issue 7, Pages 12088-12097

Recent advances have demonstrated the ability to 3D-print, via extrusion, solvent-based liquid materials (previously named 3D-Paints) which solidify nearly instantaneously upon deposition and contain a majority by volume of solid particulate material. In prior work, the dissolved polymer binder which enables this process is a high molecular weight biocompatible elastomer, poly(lactic-co-glycolic) acid (PLGA). We demonstrate in this study an expansion of this solvent-based 3D-Paint system to two additional, less-expensive, and less-specialized polymers, polystyrene (PS) and polyethylene oxide (PEO). The polymer binder used within the 3D-Paint was shown to significantly affect the as-printed and thermal postprocessing behavior of printed structures. This…
