|Abstract:||Poly(methyl methacrylate)-based bone cements are functionalized with mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSN) to enable a highly efficient and sustained release of antibiotics to reduce the risk of post-operative joint infection. To overcome the limited drug release of 5% for only 1 day with the current commercial-grade bone cements, a 8 wt% MSN-formulated bone cement is able to increase the drug release efficiency by 14-fold and sustain the release for up to 80 days. The loaded MSN is suggested to build up an effective network of rod-shaped silica particles with uniformly arranged nanoporous channels, which is responsible for the effective drug diffusion and extend time-release to the external surfaces. MSN has no detrimental effect on the critical weight-bearing bending modulus and compression strength of bone cement. In vitro assay test results show a much sustained antibacterial effect and low cytotoxicity of MSN demonstrating the potential applicability of MSN-formulated bone cement. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.|
