The average cell index was 4. The average cell indices were 4. The average cell indices were 3.
The optical density averaged 1. Correlation for vancomycin was low. Local applications of antibiotics represent an important strategy for both the prevention and treatment of orthopedic infections; yet, only a small amount of prospective clinical data currently guides our practices.
Additionally, concerns of systemic toxicity, as well as topical detrimental effects persist. The periosteum is a well-vascularized osteogenic organ and contains progenitor cells, which are responsible for callus formation and secondary bone healing after fracture, osteotomy, and even infections.
While local antibiotics are used to exert direct effects on bone at a cellular level, most studies have focused on their negative effects on stem cells and bone cells.
Since the periosteum is responsible for secondary fracture union whenever absolute stability and primary bone healing is unable to be achieved, basic research on dosage optimization needs to be performed and the antibiotic dose-related proliferative and osteogenic effects on periosteal cells need to be elucidated.
Our study set up an automatic, cell-based impedance model to monitor the proliferation of periosteal cells under different antibiotic concentrations while current reports had demonstrated inhibitory effects of those three antibiotics in stem cells or bone-derived cells using traditional cellular assays.
Traditional cell studies using WST colorimetric assay observed cell proliferation in conventional culture wells, which require large numbers of cells, large volumes of reagents, and are limited in their accessibility for high-resolution and time-lapse imaging.
The microfluidic cell culture array is fabricated by soft-lithography technology and designed to maintain and monitor cell proliferation continuously. With the integration of an electronic circuit into the microfluidic chip, this system allows the real-time detection of cellular response in a stable microenvironment in multiple assay conditions.
In our study, a dose-dependent inhibition on periosteal cell proliferation was observed, especially after treatment with medium-to-high antibiotic concentrations, in case of all three antibiotics.
