|Title:||"in Vitro" Calcification Of Silk Fibroin Hydrogel|
|Abstract:||Silk fibroin hydrogels were prepared and their potential to deposit calcium phosphates in vitro was observed. Pristine and lyophilized samples were tested in 1.5×SBF and 1.5×SBF. The results showed that silk fibroin hydrogels can induce calcium phosphate deposits both in the pristine and lyophilized form. However, the pristine silk fibroin hydrogel after calcification presented a fragile structure making it difficult to handle, while the lyophilized samples presented better resistance to handling. Calcium phosphates deposits were intense in samples submitted to tests in 1.5×SBF, however, few and isolated deposits were observed on samples submitted to tests in 1×SBF. The 3-D porous structure and the ability to deposit calcium phosphates, turn silk fibroin hydrogel a potential material suitable to use in biomimetic processes.|
