Bone defects remain a challenging problem for doctors and patients in clinical practice. Processed pyritum is a traditional Chinese medicine that is often used to clinically treat bone fractures. It contains mainly Fe, Zn, Cu, Mn, and other elements. In this study, we added the extract of processed pyritum to ß-tricalcium phosphate and produced a porous composite TPP (TCP/processed pyritum) scaffold using digital light processing (DLP) 3D printing technology. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis revealed that TPP scaffolds contained interconnected pore structures. When compared with TCP scaffolds (1.35 ± 0.15 MPa), TPP scaffolds (5.50 ± 0.24 MPa) have stronger mechanical strength and can effectively induce osteoblast proliferation, differentiation, and mineralization in vitro. Meanwhile, the in vivo study showed that the TPP scaffold had better osteogenic capacity than the TCP scaffold. Furthermore, the TPP scaffold had good biosafety after implantation. In summary, the TPP scaffold is a promising biomaterial for the clinical treatment of bone defects.

Cancer metastasis is the main cause of chemotherapeutic failure. Inhibiting the activity of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) is a common strategy for reducing metastasis. However, broad-spectrum MMP-inhibitors (MMPI) may cause undesired side effects. Here, we screened a selective MMP2 inhibitor (CCKIGLFRWR) and linked it with doxorubicin (DOX) to produce an amphiphilic peptide-drug conjugate (PDC). Then novel core-shell nanoparticles were self-assembled from PDC core and modified polylysine (MPL) shell. When the particles were passively targeted to the tumor site, the PDC core was exposed for charge switch of the MPL shell, aggregated for its transformation behavior, and specially adhered to the cell membrane. The disulfide bond between the MMPI peptide and DOX was broken via a low concentration of glutathione-mediated reduction in tumor microenvironment. DOX could effectively enter the tumor cells. Meanwhile, the MMPI peptide could selectively inhibit the activity of the MMP2 and effectively inhibit tumor metastasis.
