Abstract Ti6Al4V is commonly used for orthopedic applications. This study was designed to test the potentially added benefit of Ti6Al4V functionalized with a bioactive polymer poly(sodium styrene sulfonate) both in vitro and in vivo . Cell-based assays with MC3T3-E1 osteoblast-like cells were used to measure the cell adhesion strength, cell spreading, focal contact formation, cell differentiation and the mineralization of extracellular matrix on grafted and ungrafted Ti6Al4V discs in combination with FBS and collagen type I. Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) was also included in the cell differentiation assay. Results showed that the grafted surface combined with collagen I gave superior levels in every parameter tested with cell-based assays and was almost equivalent to BMP-2 for cell differentiation. In vivo testing was conducted in rabbits (n = 42) with cylinders of grafted and ungrafted Ti6Al4V implanted in defects made to the femoral and lateral condyles and animals that were maintained to 1, 3 and 12 months. Hydroxyapatite coated Ti6Al4V cylinders were included as a clinical reference control. Osseointegration was assessed post-mortem using histomorphometric analysis conducted on resin sections of explanted undecalcified bone. Two histomorphometric parameters, that of bone-to-implant contact and the bone area, were analyzed by a trained observer blinded to sample identity. Results showed osseointegration on grafted Ti6Al4V was marginally better than both ungrafted and hydroxyapatite coated Ti6Al4V. Overall, the study found that the grafted Ti6Al4V significantly promoted all aspects of osteogenesis tested in vitro and, although in vivo outcomes were less compelling, histomorphometry showed osseointegration of grafted Ti6Al4V implants was equivalent or better than controls.

Abstract This study is focused on understanding the underlying mechanisms involved in the improved in vitro and in vivo responses of osteoblasts on poly(sodium styrene sulfonate) (poly(NaSS)) functionalized Ti6Al4V surfaces. We probed the contribution of cell-adhesive glycoproteins fibronectin (Fn) and vitronectin (Vn) in the initial adhesion of MC3T3-E1 osteoblastic cells to poly(NaSS) functionalized and control Ti6Al4V surfaces. Firstly, culture media containing serum depleted of Fn and Vn (DD...

The research developed on functionalized model or prosthetic surfaces with bioactive polymers has raised the possibility to modulate and/or control the biological in vitro and in vivo responses to synthetic biomaterials. The mechanisms underlying the bioactivity exhibited by sulfonated groups on surfaces involves both selective adsorption and conformational changes of adsorbed proteins. Indeed, surfaces functionalized by grafting poly(sodium styrene sulfonate) [poly(NaSS)] modulate the cellular ...

Functionalization of surfaces with poly(sodium styrenesulfonate) (poly(NaSS)) has recently been found to enhance osteointegration of implantable materials. Radical polymerization of poly(NaSS) on titanium (Ti)-based substrates has been used to improve their long-term performance by preventing fibrosis and consequently implant loosening. However, the influence of the sulfonate groups on the early cell behavior and the associated molecular phenomena remains to be understood. In this work, we used ...

Abstract Ten years ago, we synthesized “bioactive model polymers” bearing sulfonate groups and proposed a mechanism of their modulation effect at different steps of the cell response. Then, we set up the grafting of polymers bearing sulfonate on Ti6Al4V surfaces by a grafting “from” technique making sure of the creation of covalent bonds between the grafted polymer and the Ti6Al4V surface. We have checked and confirmed the positive effect of grafted sulfonate groups on the osteoblastic cell resp...

The long-term success of orthopedic implants may be compromised by defective osseointegration and bacterial infection. An effective approach to minimize implant failure would be to modify the surface of the implant to make it habitable for bone-forming cells and anti-infective at the same time. In this in vitro study, the surfaces of titanium (Ti) substrates were functionalized by first covalently grafting either dopamine followed by carboxymethyl chitosan (CMCS) or hyaluronic acid-catechol (HAC...

The integrin-mediated adhesion machinery is the primary cell-matrix adhesion mechanism in Metazoa. The integrin adhesion complex, which modulates important aspects of the cell physiology, is composed of integrins (α and β subunits) and several scaffolding and signaling proteins. Integrins appeared to be absent in all non-metazoan eukaryotes so far analyzed, including fungi, plants, and choanoflagellates, the sister-group to Metazoa. Thus, integrins and, therefore, the integrin-mediated adhesion ...

Abstract Bioactive polymers bearing sulfonate (styrene sodium sulfonate, NaSS) and carboxylate (methylacrylic acid, MA) groups were grafted onto Ti6Al4V alloy surfaces by a two-step procedure. The Ti alloy surfaces were first chemically oxidized in a piranha solution and then directly subjected to radical polymerization at 70 °C in the absence of oxygen. The grafted surfaces were characterized by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) an...

Abstract This study is part of a new trend in the metallic biomaterials field that searches to use the titanium beta alloys with recognized bulk and surface properties for better biological response. Ti15Mo alloy (wt%) had it surface modified by TiO2 nanotubes growth using the anodic oxidation method and grafted with poly(sodium styrene sulfonate) (PNaSS). The motivation behind the combination of these techniques was to promote a surface, which enables better osteointegration associated with ant...

Abstract Orthopedic implants are increasing in global prevalence, with hundreds of thousands of operations performed annually. However, a significant proportion of these operations experiences failure due to poor bone integration. Many avenues of investigation have been explored to address this issue and improve the biocompatibility of orthopedic devices by modifying the biological response to the implant surface. Biomimetic functionalization of orthopedic surfaces enables control over the biolo...

The clinical success of a titanium (Ti) percutaneous implant requires the integration with soft tissues to form a biological seal, which effectively combats marsupialization, premigration and infection after implantation. However, the bioinert surface of Ti or its alloys prevents the material from sufficient biological sealing and limits the application of Ti or its alloys as percutaneous implants. In this study, we achieved a collagen coating to bioactivate the surface of Ti-6Al-4V. In order to...

: This review takes an approach to implanted medical devices that considers whether the intention of the implanted device is to have any communication of energy or materials with the body. The first part describes some specific examples of three different classes of implants, analyzed with regards to the type of signal sent to cells. Through several examples, the authors describe that a one way signaling to the body leads to encapsulation or degradation. In most cases, those phenomena do not lea...

Abstract Orthopedic implants have shown major success in clinics after successful orthopedic surgeries. However, they are also associated with several drawbacks such as local and systemic immune reaction in the body and improper integration of the bone with the implants. Osteoconductivity is a property of orthopedic implants that promotes bone cell adhesion and bone tissue integration on implant surfaces. This study presents use of a biodegradable cationic polyester, poly(4-hydroxy-L-proline est...

Abstract Protein adsorption is the first process that occurs after implantation of a biomaterial in the human body. This process changes the properties of the surface and can induce structural alterations on the adsorbed/desorbed proteins. Cell-biomaterial interactions are mediated by the type and conformation of the adsorbed proteins that can interact with specific integrins expressed by the cells. These phenomena can be strongly influenced by adsorption of water molecules, a process that is de...
