dc.description.abstractHydroxyapatite (HA), the bone mineral and Cissus quadrangularis (CQ), a medicinal plant with osteogenic activity, are attaining increasing interest as a potential therapeutic agent for enhanced bone tissue regeneration. In the present study a synergistic effect of these two agents were analyzed by fabricating PCL-CQ-HA nanofibrous scaffolds by electrospinning and compared with PCL-CQ and PCL (control) nanofibrous scaffolds. Morphology, composition, hydrophilicity, and mechanical properties of the electrospun PCL, PCL-CQ, PCL-CQ-HA nanofibrous scaffolds were examined by Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Contact angle and Tensile tests, respectively. The response of human foetal osteoblast cells on these scaffolds were evaluated using MTS assay, alkaline phosphatase activity, alizarin red staining, and osteocalcin expression for bone tissue regeneration. While the observed cellular response to both groups of scaffolds was better than for the control PCL scaffold, the PCL-CQ-HA nanofibrous scaffolds provided the most favorable substrate for cell proliferation and mineralization. The results showed that PCL-CQ-HA nanofibrous scaffolds had appropriate surface roughness for the osteoblast adhesion, proliferation, and mineralization comparing with other scaffolds. The observed investigation of physicochemical and biological properties suggests that the CQ-HA loaded PCL nanofibrous scaffolds serve as a potential biocomposite material for bone tissue engineering. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
