A clinical need continues for consistent bone remodeling within problematic sites such as those of fracture nonunion, avascular necrosis, or irregular bone formations. In attempt to address such needs, a biomaterial system is proposed to induce early inflammatory responses after implantation and to provide later osteoconductive scaffolding for bone regeneration. Biomaterial-induced inflammation would parallel the early stage of hematoma-induced fracture repair and allow scaffold-promoted remodeling of osseous tissue to a healthy state. Initiation of the wound healing cascade by two human concentrated platelet releasate-containing alginate/β-tricalcium phosphate biocomposites has been studied in vitro using the TIB-71™ RAW264.7 mouse monocyte cell line. Inflammatory responses inherent to the base material were found and could be modulated through incorporation of platelet releasate. Differences in hydrogel wt% (2 vs. 8 %) and/or calcium phosphate granule vol.% (20 vs. 10 %) allowed for tuning the response associated with platelet releasate-associated growth factor elution. Tunability from completely suppressing the inflammatory response to augmenting the response was observed through varied elution profiles of both releasate-derived bioagents and impurities inherent to alginate. A 2.5-fold upregulation of inducible-nitric oxide synthase gene expression followed by a tenfold increase in nitrite media levels was induced by inclusion of releasate within the 8 wt%/10 vol.% formulation and was comparable to an endotoxin positive control. Whereas, near complete elimination of inflammation was seen when releasate was included within the 2 wt%/20 vol.% formulation. These in vitro results suggested tunable interactions between the multiple platelet releasate-derived bioagents and the biocomposites for enhancing hematoma-like fracture repair. Additionally, minimally invasive delivery for in situ curing of the implant system via injection was demonstrated in rat tail vertebrae using microcomputed tomography.
