Bioabsorbable biomaterials have been widely used in the treatments of bone defects. Collagen has good biocompatibility, weak antigenic activity, and has already been commercially used as membranes with hemostatic action and for wound dressing. Nitric oxide (NO) has osteogenic activity characterized by the induction of increased osteoblastic activity and reduced osteoclastic activity. The main aim of this project is the preparation of type I collagen membranes functionalized with S-nitrosothiol groups and charged with S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO), for the localized NO release. Membranes functionalization will be achieved through the grafting of cysteine, N-acethylcysteine and glutathione, followed by nitrosation with nitrous acid (HONO). GSNO incorporation will be achieved through sorption from solution. The membranes will be analyzed by chemiluminescence regarding their charges and real time NO release kinetics. The charges of SNO groups will be adjusted to stimulate osteoblasts proliferation in cultured cells aiming therapeutic action in bone regeneration. The biodegradability of the membranes will be characterized using enzymatic degradation assay for collagenase. The results obtained are expected to contribute to the development of new NO releasing absorbable scafolds, according to one of the sub-projects of the Thematic Project. (AU)
