Abstract

The pathophysiology leading to delayed wound healing is complex and efficient therapeutic approaches for accelerated wound healing currently do not exist. We developed a novel drug-eluting platform for the potential use in wound dressings. Here, we report on the potential of eluting ascorbic acid-2-phosphate (ASC-2P), a highly stable variant of ascorbic acid, to induce angiogenesis and to promote collagen synthesis by fibroblasts. The drug-eluting platform device (DEPD) consists of biocompatible polymeric layers comprising polyethylene terephtalate, polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), and polyurethane with PVA as the solvent for ASC-2P. The angiogenic potential of ASC-2P was evaluated in the endothelial cell tube formation assay (TFA) and in the chorion allantoic membrane (CAM) model. Collagen synthesis by ASC-2P-stimulated fibroblasts was determined by Sirius Red staining. ASC-2P significantly induced angiogenesis in five independent TFA and CAM assays and induced collagen synthesis in two different fibroblast cell lines. The eluting kinetics of ASC-2P was determined by the ultraviolet NanoDrop method and the functional 2,2'-Azinobis-(3-ethylbenzthiazolin-6-sulfonic acid) method. Eluting profiles showed a continuous release in the range of biologically effective concentrations >10 days. This is the first report showing the proangiogenic- and collagen-promoting features of ASC-2P. DEPD loaded with ASC-2P ought to be further evaluated as wound dressings or as supplementary pads for topical treatment of delayed wound healing in preclinical studies.
