Abstract

The macroporous materials were prepared from the transformation of cuttlebone as biotemplates under hydrothermal reactions and characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric/differential thermal analyses (TG-DTA), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Cell experimental results showed that the prepared materials as bone tissue engineering scaffolds or fillers had fine biocompatibility suitable for adhesion and proliferation of the hMSCs (human marrow mesenchymal stem cells). Histological analyses were carried out by implanting the scaffolds into a rabbit femur, where the bioresorption, degradation, and biological activity of the scaffolds were observed in the animal body. The prepared scaffolds kept the original three-dimensional frameworks with the ordered porous structures, which made for blood circulation, nutrition supply, and the cells implantation. The biotemplated syntheses could provide a new effective approach to prepare the bone tissue engineering scaffold materials.
