Abstract: Organic polymers with ability of apatite formation in body environment are expected as novel bone substitutes having not only bone-bonding ability, i.e. bioactivity, but also mechanical performance analogous to natural bone. Several metal oxides have been found to be effective for the apatite deposition in body environment. In addition, release of calcium ions from the materials significantly enhances it. In this study, we attempted to synthesize bioactive organic-inorganic hybrids from Poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) by incorporation of various metal oxides and calcium salt. Silica and molybdenum oxides were selected as metal oxides. Ability of apatite formation on the hybrids was examined in vitro using simulated body fluid (SBF, Kokubo solution). Apatite deposition were observed to occur on the surfaces of PVA/silica and PVA/molybdenum oxide hybrids in SBF, when their compositions were appropriately controlled.

Abstract: Organic polymer coated with hydroxyapatite (so-called apatite) on its surface is a candidate of new hybrid materials for medical applications since it is expected to show bone-bonding ability and achieve mechanical properties derived from organic substrate. We have shown that some kinds of polyamide films containing carboxyl group or sulfonic group form hydroxyapatite in the simulated body environment, when they are incorporated with calcium chloride. In the present study, the polyamide containing carboxyl groups were modified with silanol groups and its apatite-forming ability was investigated in 1.5SBF, which has ion concentrations 1.5 times those of a simulated body fluid (SBF). It was found that polyamide films modified with silanol groups showed higher ability to induce apatite on its surface in 1.5SBF than the films without the modification, when they were incorporated with calcium chloride.

Abstract: Apatite formation behavior of tricalcium phosphate (TCP) ceramics with different phases and porosity was investigated in a simulated body fluid (SBF, Kokubo solution). The pure α-TCP with 80% porosity did not form hydroxyapatite (HAp) on its surface after soaking in SBF for 7 days. On the other hand, the pure α-TCP with 20% porosity formed HAp on its surface after soaking in SBF within 7 days, and the biphasic TCP, which consisted of mixture of α-TCP and β-TCP and had 20% porosity, formed HAp within 1 day. The low porosity and coexistence of α-TCP and β-TCP phases in TCP ceramics were effective for apatite formation in SBF.

Abstract: Apatite formation in living body is essential condition for artificial materials to exhibit bone-bonding ability, i.e. bioactivity. It has been recently revealed that sulfonic group triggers apatite nucleation in body environment. Organic-inorganic hybrids consisting of organic polymer and the sulfonic group are therefore expected to be useful for novel bone-repairing materials exhibiting flexibility as well as bioactivity. In the present study, organic-inorganic hybrids were prepared from vinylsulfonic acid sodium salt and hydroxyethylmethacrylate (HEMA), a kind of acrylic polymer. Bioactivity of the hybrids was assessed in vitro by examining their acceptance of apatite formation in simulated body fluid (SBF, Kokubo solution). The obtained hybrids showed the apatite deposition after soaking in SBF within 7 d.

Abstract: Our previous study presented that sericin, a kind of silk protein, had high ability of apatite formation under a condition mimicking body environment when the sericin contains high content of β sheet structure. To confirm the effectiveness of β sheet structure on apatite nucleation, we attempted to synthesize of polypeptide containing β sheet structure and investigate apatite formation in 1.5SBF that has 1.5 times the inorganic ion concentrations of human blood plasma. Poly(FEFEFEFG) was synthesized as the polypeptide consisting mainly of β sheet structure. Formation of hydroxyapatite was observed on the film of the poly(FEFEFEFG) after soaking in 1.5SBF within 7 days. We could confirm that β sheet structure was effective even in the synthetic polypeptide.
