Bioactive functional nanolayers of chitosan-lysine surfactant with single- and mixed-protein-repellent and antibiofilm properties for medical implants
Urban Ajdnik, Lidija Fras Zemljič, Olivija Plohl, Lourdes Pérez, Janja Trček, Matej Bračič, Tamilselvan Mohan, 2021, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: Medical implant-associated infections resulting from biofilm formation triggered by unspecific protein adsorption arethe prevailing cause of implant failure. However, implant surfaces rendered with multifunctional bioactive nanocoatings offer apromising alternative to prevent the initial attachment of bacteria and effectively interrupt biofilm formation. The need to researchand develop novel and stable bioactive nanocoatings for medical implants and a comprehensive understanding of their properties incontact with the complex biological environment are crucial. In this study, we developed an aqueous stable and crosslinker-freepolyelectrolyte−surfactant complex (PESC) composed of a renewable cationic polysaccharide, chitosan, a lysine-based anionicsurfactant (77KS), and an amphoteric antibiotic, amoxicillin, which is widely used to treat a number of infections caused by bacteria.We successfully introduced the PESC as bioactive functional nanolayers on the“model”and“real”polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)surfaces under dynamic and ambient conditions. Besides their high stability and improved wettability, these uniformly depositednanolayers (thickness: 44−61 nm) with mixed charges exhibited strong repulsion toward three model blood proteins (serumalbumin,fibrinogen, andγ-globulin) and their competitive interactions in the mixture in real-time, as demonstrated using a quartzcrystal microbalance with dissipation (QCM-D). The functional nanolayers with a maximum negative zeta potential (ζ:−19 to−30mV at pH 7.4), water content (1628−1810 ng cm−2), and hydration (low viscosity and elastic shear modulus) correlated with themass, conformation, and interaction nature of proteins. In vitro antimicrobial activity testing under dynamic conditions showed thatthe charged nanolayers actively inhibited the growth of both Gram-negative (Escherichia coli) and Gram-positive (Staphylococcusaureus) bacteria compared to unmodified PDMS. Given the ease of fabrication of multifunctional and charged biobased coatingswith simultaneous protein-repellent and antimicrobial activities, the limitations of individual approaches could be overcome leadingto a better and advanced design of various medical devices (e.g., catheters, prosthetics, and stents).

Functional 3D printed polysaccharide derivative scaffolds for vascular graft application : doctoral disertation
Fazilet Gürer, 2023, doktorska disertacija

Opis: Tissue engineering (TE) is an interdisciplinary field that aims towards replacement, healing or reconstruction of damaged tissue and organs. Incurable diseases are currently treated with organ transplantation, that have the disadvantages of insufficient donors, immune response, and organ rejection after transplantation. TE imitate the functions of extracellular matrix (ECM) to develop biocompatible/biodegradable scaffolds with appropriate features which are utilized to provide mechanical support, cellular infiltration, migration, and tissue formation, and to mimic the biochemical and biophysical cues of cells. Several fabrication methods have been introduced to mimic the 3D structure of ECM and 3D printing is one of the additive manufacturing techniques, widely used in TE because of its feasibility to build complex tissue constructs and control over fabrication and cell distribution. The polysaccharide-peptide conjugate has gained enormous interest in recent years owing to its biocompatibility, degradability, flexibility, and structural matching to natural proteoglycans. In this context, we reported here on investigation of biocompatibility with HUVECs, surface modification of 3D printed PCL scaffolds with an amine group and chemically crosslinked oxidized HA-amino acid/peptide conjugates (OHACs) was used to develop a novel biomaterial for use as a tissue engineered vascular graft. Modified polysaccharides were characterized with respect to their chemical structure, charge, UV and fluorescence properties and cytotoxicity. The successful conjugation was demonstrated by XPS, and a decrease in the free amine peaks on the surface was observed after conjugation. In addition, the water contact angle measurements showed improved wetting, an indication that the conjugation to the PCL-A surface was successful. Finally, the biocompatibility of the novel scaffolds was characterized by the MTS and the live- dead assay. In both assays, proliferation of cells was observed after 7 days and cell spreading on the surface was detected by phalloidin staining of actin filaments. In conclusion, it was possible to prepare surface-active scaffolds by combining the advantages of biocompatibility and mechanical strength of polysaccharides and polyesters, respectively.

Okoljsko prijazna in napredna funkcionalizacija silikona za razvoj novih medicinskih pripomočkov : magistrsko delo
Katja Kuzmič, 2021, magistrsko delo

Opis: Prekomerna uporaba antibiotikov za zdravljenje infekcij vodi v naraščanje števila odpornih bakterij, kar predstavlja grožnjo javnemu zdravju. Strategije zmanjševanja uporabe temeljijo tudi na preprečevanju nastanka bakterijskega biofilma na površinah medicinskih pripomočkov. Predstavljamo metodo funkcionalizacije silikona z oplaščenjem z naravnimi bioaktivnimi substancami. Na silikon smo kot vezni polimer adsorbirali biopolimer polidopamin, na katerega smo kovalentno vezali karbokismetil hitozan s tiolnimi funkcionalnimi skupinami, ki izkazuje protimikrobne in biofilm-inhibitorne lastnosti. Rezultati karakterizacije so pokazali uspešno kovalentno vezavo karboksimetil hitozana preko tiolnih skupin na polidopamin, kar je pripomoglo k zmanjšanju tvorbe biofilma na površini v primerjavi s fizikalno vezanim karboksimetil hitozanom in neobdelanim silikonom.

Funkcionalizacija površin medicinskih materialov z naravnimi, okoljsko prijaznimi biopolimeri za dosego inhibitornih lastnosti biofilma : magistrsko delo
Alja Čas, 2019, magistrsko delo

Opis: Bakterijska kontaminacija površin, ki vodi v nastanek biofilma, je velik problem na področju zdravstva, v prehrambni industriji, kozmetiki idr. Pojavile so se številne preventivne strategije odstranjevanja oz. zmanjševanja nastajanja bakterijskih adhezij, ki pripomorejo k zmanjšanju razvoja biofilma na površinah materialov. Polimerni materiali, iz katerih so v veliki meri izdelani medicinski pripomočki, so med uporabo navadno ugodni za adhezijo bakterij. V to skupino materialov sodijo tudi silikonski materiali, ki so nosilni material katetrov, timpanalnih cevk, dializnih in gastroenteroloških tub itd. Pri njih zaradi bakterijske adhezije posledično zelo pogosto prihaja do infekcij in pri kardiovaskularnih materialih tudi do strjevanja krvi. Polisaharidi so naravni biopolimeri, ki kažejo številne zdravilne učinke. Površinska obdelava z naravnimi ali modificiranimi polisaharidi, ki sodijo med biopolimere, različnih polimernih materialov za medicino, je obetavno inhibitorno sredstvo proti bakterijskim infekcijam. Z okoljevarstvenega vidika so to okolju prijazni agensi, saj so biološko razgradljivi in kompatibilni, njihova uporaba pa vpliva na zmanjšanje ogljičnega odtisa. V magistrski nalogi je bil poudarek na dveh naravnih biopolimerih, polisaharidih, to sta hialuronska kislina in fukoidan. Makromolekularne raztopine obeh biopolimerov so bile preučene z vidika biofilmskih inhibitornih premazov za silikonske filme. V teoretičnem poglavju so opisane njune glavne značilnosti. Eksperimentalni del zajema funkcionalizacijo silikonskega materiala z obema naravnima biopolimeroma. Sledila je podrobna študija interakcij med makromolekularnimi raztopinami z modelnimi silikonskimi površinami, kjer je bil preučen vpliv pH in koncentracije soli na adsorpcijo/desorpcijo. Slednje smo analizirali s pomočjo uporabe natančne kremenove mikrotehtnice. Kot modelni sistem so bili uporabljeni tanki silikonski filmi, narejeni z raztapljanjem silikona v toluenu in tvorbo filmov z metodo »spin-coating«. Fokus raziskave je bil na preučitvi biofilmskih inhibitornih lastnosti naravnih biopolimerov kot funkcionalnega premaza silikona proti razvoju biofilma. V ta namen se je v drugem delu naloge s kremenovo mikrotehtnico preučila afiniteta vezave proteinov na funkcionalizirane modelne silikonske filme.

Chemical modification and characterization of poly(ethylene terephthalate) surfaces for collagen immobilization
Mioara Drobota, Zdenka Peršin Fratnik, Lidija Fras Zemljič, Tamilselvan Mohan, Karin Stana-Kleinschek, Aleš Doliška, Matej Bračič, Volker Ribitsch, Valeria Harabagiu, Sergiu Coseri, 2013, izvirni znanstveni članek

Opis: The functionalization of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) surface films by reactions with multifunctional amines such as triethylenetetramine (TETA), and tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) was investigated. For the functionalization of PET films surface we used a new way of treatment, a 'sandwich model'. Physical-chemical properties of functionalized PET films were analysed. Qualitative and quantitative determination of the introduced amine groups were examined by means of Fourier Transform Infrared Attenuated Total Reflexion(FTIR - ATR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), and potentiometric titration. Gained wetting properties were determined by using contact angle measurements and thoroughly analysed by acid-base approach. In addition, surface topography was investigated by atomic force microscopy (AFM). The amount of the introduced amino groups after TETA incorporation has been found to be two times higher as compared to TEPA. Wetting properties were significantly improved after aminolysis. Surface free energy was higher for PET - TETA treated film than that observed for PET - TEPA treated which is in accordance with titration results. The collagen immobilization onto PET treated films was evidenced by using AFM and subsequently by using XPS.
