The immune response to an orthopedic implant is closely related to the nearby bone metabolism balance. To modify titanium (Ti) substrates and accordingly regulate the balance between osteoclast activation and osteoblast differentiation, a multifunctional peptide OGP-NAC was synthesized via conjugating an osteogenic growth peptide (OGP) with N-acetylcysteine (NAC). Then, the synthesized peptide was employed to functionalize Ti substrates and the response of both osteoblasts and osteoclasts was investigated in vitro. The results showed that OGP-NAC was successfully prepared and immobilized onto Ti substrate surfaces. Thereafter, studies on introducing RAW 264.7 cells (one kind of monocyte macrophage responsible for immune responses) to osteoclasts demonstrated that the peptide modified Ti surface could inhibit RAW 264.7 cells from secreting important inflammatory cytokines (TNF-α and IL-1β), and suppress the activation of MAPK, NF-κB and NFAT c1, which are important transcription factors for osteoclastogenesis. Meanwhile, the modified surface promoted osteoblast spreading, proliferation and differentiation. The study offers a feasible strategy to mediate the balance between osteoclast activation and osteoblast differentiation, having great potential for improving osseointegration of an orthopedic implant.

Summary Bone fractures are the most common traumatic injuries in humans. The repair of bone fractures is a regenerative process that recapitulates many of the biological events of embryonic skeletal development. Most of the time it leads to successful healing and the recovery of the damaged bone. Unfortunately, about 5-10% of fractures will lead to delayed healing or non-union, more so in the case of co-morbidities such as diabetes. In this article, we review the different strategies to heal bon...

Abstract Evolution of metal implants progressively shifted the focus from adequate mechanical strength to improved biocompatibility and absence of toxicity and, finally, to fast osseointegration. Recently, new frontiers and challenges of Ti implants have been addressed to improvement of bioactivity, fighting of bacterial infection and biofilm formation, as well as modulation of inflammation. This is closely related to the clinical demand of multifunctional implants able to simultaneously have a ...

Abstract The development, maintenance of healthy bone and regeneration of injured tissue in the human body comprise a set of intricate and finely coordinated processes. However, an analysis of current bone regeneration strategies shows that only a small fraction of well-reported bone biology aspects has been used as inspiration and transposed into the development of therapeutic products. Specific topics that include inter-scale bone structural organization, developmental aspects of bone morphoge...

Receptor activator of nuclear factor-kappa B (RANK) ligand (RANKL) binds RANK on the surface of osteoclast precursors to trigger osteoclastogenesis. Recent studies have indicated that osteocytic RANKL has an important role in osteoclastogenesis during bone remodelling; however, the role of osteoblastic RANKL remains unclear. Here we show that vesicular RANK, which is secreted from the maturing osteoclasts, binds osteoblastic RANKL and promotes bone formation by triggering RANKL reverse signallin...

Abstract Oxidative stress on transplanted bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells (BMSCs) during acute inflammation is a critical issue in cell therapies. N-acetyl-L cysteine (NAC) promotes the production of a cellular antioxidant molecule, glutathione (GSH). The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of pre-treatment with NAC on the apoptosis resistance and bone regeneration capability of BMSCs. Rat femur-derived BMSCs were treated in growth medium with or without 5 mM NAC for 6 ho...

Abstract Macrophages are multifunctional immune cells with diverse physiological functions such as fighting against infection, influencing progression of pathologies, maintaining homeostasis, and regenerating tissues. Macrophages can be induced to adopt distinct polarized phenotypes, such as classically activated pro-inflammatory (M1) phenotypes or alternatively activated anti-inflammatory and pro-healing (M2), to execute diverse and dynamic immune functions. However, unbalanced polarizations of...

Receptor activator of NFkB ligand (RANKL) is a TNF-family cytokine required for osteoclast formation, as well as immune cell and mammary gland development. It is produced as a membrane-bound protein that can be shed to form a soluble protein. We created mice harboring a sheddase-resistant form of RANKL, in which soluble RANKL is undetectable in the circulation. Lack of soluble RANKL does not affect bone mass or structure in growing mice but reduces osteoclast number and increases cancellous bone...

The mechanical properties of bone are fundamental to the ability of our skeletons to support movement and to provide protection to our vital organs. As such, deterioration in mechanical behavior with aging and/or diseases such as osteoporosis and diabetes can have profound consequences for individuals’ quality of life. This article reviews current knowledge of the basic mechanical behavior of bone at length scales ranging from hundreds of nanometers to tens of centimeters. We present the basic t...

Osteoclasts are bone-resorbing cells that play an essential role in bone remodeling. Defects in osteoclasts result in unbalanced bone remodeling and are linked to many bone diseases including osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, primary bone cancer, and skeletal metastases. Receptor activator of NF-kappaB ligand (RANKL) is a classical inducer of osteoclast formation. In the presence of macrophage-colony-stimulating factor, RANKL and co-stimulatory signals synergistically regulate osteoclastogenes...

Estrogen, a steroid hormone, plays an important role in modulating osteoclast proliferation and development. Estrogen deficiency boosts osteoclast activity, leading to osteoporosis in elderly women. In this study, 17-s estradiol (E2)-loaded poly(e-caprolactone) (PCL)/silk fibroin (SF) electrospun microfibers were developed as a proposed localized E2 delivery system to treat osteoporotic fractures. PCL is a synthetic polymer known for its biocompatibility and excellent mechanical properties. The ...

Abstract Bone endoprosthesis in patients with systemic chronic inflammation frequently leads to poor osseointegration after implantation mainly due to the increase in pro-inflammatory cytokines that induce bone resorption and impair bone formation. In this work, peptide-coated implants are designed to create a beneficial bone immune microenvironment around prostheses to promote interfacial osteogenesis. By taking advantage of the spontaneous and stable coordination chemistry, Ti-based implants a...
