Spinal cord injury remains a challenge for both clinicians and scientists. Novel materials such as graphene oxide have arisen as attractive alternatives for the design of more efficient reparative platforms. On page 1861 Maria C. Serrano and co-workers investigate the sub-acute response of the rat injured spinal cord to 3D graphene oxide scaffolds to aid progress in the field.
- Polyurethane: Stable Cell Phenotype Requires Plasticity: Polymer Supported Directed Differentiation Reveals a Unique Gene Signature Predicting Stable Hepatocyte Performance (Adv. Healthcare Mater. 12/2015) (page 1819)

One major obstacle to the routine deployment of stem cell-derived cells is their instability in culture. On page 1820 David C. Hay and co-workers describe the use of a synthetic polymer surface. The image shows stem cell-derived hepatocytes replated on this polyurethane surface. Importantly the cells express Zonal Occludin (green stain) at the cell surface, which indicates that the cells display elements of polarization. The blue stain is DAPI, which demarks the nucleus.
- Bone Cancer: Selenite-Releasing Bone Mineral Nanoparticles Retard Bone Tumor Growth and Improve Healthy Tissue Functions In Vivo (Adv. Healthcare Mater. 12/2015) (page 1735)
Yanhua Wang, Hang Hao, Haoming Liu, Yifan Wang, Yan Li, Gaojie Yang, Jun Ma, Chuanbin Mao and Shengmin Zhang
Article first published online: 26 AUG 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/adhm.201570069
On page 1813 Chuanbin Mao, Shengmin Zhang, and co-workers show that selenite-doped bone mineral nanoparticles can retard the growth of osteosarcoma, inhibit tumor metastasis and improve the functions of liver, kidney and heart in a nude mice model, which is achieved through sustained release of selenite ions from the nanoparticles via a degradation-mediated fashion.
