New Findings on Alkenes Described by Investigators at Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics [Tissue engineering scaffolds of mesoporous magnesium silicate and poly(epsilon-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) composite]
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Health & Medicine Week -- Research findings on Alkenes are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Shanghai, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Mesoporous magnesium silicate (m-MS) and poly(epsilon-caprolactone)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL-PEG-PCL) composite scaffolds were fabricated by solvent-casting and particulate leaching method. The results suggested that the incorporation of m-MS into PCL-PEG-PCL could significantly improve the water adsorption of the m-MS/PCL-PEG-PCL composite (m-MPC) scaffolds."
Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from the Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, "The in vitro degradation behavior of m-MPC scaffolds were determined by testing weight loss of the scaffolds after soaking into phosphate buffered saline (PBS), and the result showed that the degradation of m-MPC scaffolds was obviously enhanced by addition of m-MS into PCL-PEG-PCL after soaking for 10 weeks. Proliferation of MG63 cells on m-MPC was significantly higher than MPC scaffolds at 4 and 7 days. ALP activity on the m-MPC was obviously higher than MPC scaffolds at 7 days, revealing that m-MPC could promote cell differentiation. Histological evaluation showed that the introduction of m-MS into PCL-PEG-PCL enhanced the efficiency of new bone formation when the m-MPC scaffolds implanted into bone defect of rabbits."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The results suggested that the inorganic/organic composite of m-MS and PCL-PEG-PCL scaffolds exhibited good biocompatibility, degradability and osteogenesis."
