  • Publication number: 20220062324
    Abstract: The present invention provides novel biomaterial compositions and methods having a technology to improve retention of hyaluronic acid (HA). The biomaterial compositions utilize small HA binding peptides and extracellular matrix binding (ECM) peptides that are tethered to synthetic biocompatible polymers. When tethered to the polymers, the peptide region allows the polymers to bind to HA and to tissues such as cartilage. The novel biomaterial compositions can be used to coat or chemically modify cartilage or tissues with a biologically compatible polymer having HA binding peptides, which allow HA to bind to the surface of the cartilage or tissues. Methods of using same are also provided.

  • Publication number: 20220062383
    Abstract: IL-17-producing ?? T cells and CD4+TH17 cells were identified in fibrotic tissue surrounding human breast implants. In both murine and human tissue samples, senescent cells developed around the implants, which was linked to the IL-17 response. Activation of the TH17 pathway in the foreign body response/reaction (FBR) defines an adaptive immune response to synthetic materials, providing multiple new targets for therapeutic inhibition.

  • Publication number: 20180185547
    Abstract: An extracellular matrix (ECM) mixture and ECM scaffolds made with same are disclosed. The ECM mixture can comprise from about 5% to about 85% by weight of ECM material and from about 15% to about 95% by weight of a polymer material, such as, but not limited to, a biodegradable polyester. The presently disclosed anatomically-shaped porous ECM scaffolds can be formed, for example, using a three-dimensional (3D) printing process, an injection molding process, or any other process.
