Three dimensional printed bioglass/gelatin/alginate composite scaffolds with promoted mechanical strength, biomineralization, cell responses and osteogenesis

Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine 2020 Volume 31, Article 77

In this study, porous bioglass/gelatin/alginate bone tissue engineering scaffolds were fabricated by three-dimensional printing. The compressive strength and in vitro biomineralization properties of the bioglass–gelatin–alginate scaffolds (BG/Gel/SA scaffolds) were significantly improved with the increase of bioglass content until 30% weight percentage followed by a rapid decline in strength. In addition, the cells attach and spread on the BG/Gel/SA scaffolds surfaces represents good adhesion and biocompatibility. Furthermore, the cells (rat bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells, mBMSCs) proliferation and osteogenic differentiation on the BG/Gel/SA scaffolds were also promoted with the increase of bioglass content. Overall, the adding of bioglass in Gel/SA scaffolds…
