However, polymeric biomaterials used in biomedical application forms, including coverage of medical equipment, artificial implants and devices for drug delivery. Polymeric reticulated structure can be formed, for example, by stitching solutions of water-soluble polymers with the formation of water-insoluble polymeric reticulated structure. Mechanical and structural characteristics can be adjusted by modifying the density of cross-linking depends on the pore size of the mesh structure, water content and mechanical properties.

Polymers, matrices or gels are preferred for tissue engineering because of their materials can be encapsulated cells. Some polymers or gels have a high water content, comparable with the tissue moisture content, which allows the transport of nutrients and waste products.

The present invention provides a method of in situ polymerization for the formation of structural media (scaffolds) and the like, which may be formed into the desired shape according to the defect, contribute to the development of tissue by stimulating the recovery of native cells, and potentially can be implanted using minimally invasive injection.

This description of the invention is directed, at least in part, on the polymer matrix and gels, and methods of obtaining and application of matrices, polymers and gels. One of these aforementioned polymers contains imide.

For example, this description is functionalized biologically compatible with the first polymer, such as hyaluronate, keratan-sulfate, chondroitin-sulfate and the like, substituted imide. For example, see patent application WO 2006089119, WO 2004029137, WO 2006105161 and WO 2006036681 given in this description for information about the various options for use of similar, but unrelated to the described compounds. In that the OIC did not mention imides, or statement is clearly not for eating imides.

Biological surface refers to the outer, open to the environment part of the biological material or organism such as a microbe, virus, cell, tissue, organ and the like, with which a biologically compatible polymer can interact, respond and/or to which to adhere.

Biologically compatible polymer refers to a polymer that is functionalized to serve as compositions for application to the surface. The polymer is a polymer of natural origin, or which is non-toxic to the recipient. The polymer contains at least imide. The polymer may be homopolymers where all monomers are the same, or heteropolymers containing two or more types of monomers. The terms "biocompatible polymer", "biocompatible crosslinked polymeric matrix" and "biocompatibility"being used in relation to these polymers, are common in the technology and are considered equivalent to each other, including biologically compatible polymer. For example, biocompatible polymers include polymers that are as non-toxic to the recipient (e.g., animal or human), and do not decompose (if the polymer decomposes) to such an extent that the recipient of bresults the Monomeric or oligomeric subunits or other by-products in toxic concentrations.

The concept of "active agent" and "biologically active agent" are used in this description interchangeably to refer to a chemical or biological compound that creates a desired pharmacological and/or physiological effect that can be prophylactic or therapeutic. The terms also encompass pharmaceutically acceptable, pharmacologically active derivatives of those active agents specifically mentioned in the present description, containing, but not limited to such salts, esters, amides, prodrugs, active metabolites, analogs, and the like. When the terms "active agent", "pharmacologically active agent" and "drug", it should be understood so that the invention includes the active agent per se as well as pharmaceutically acceptable, pharmacologically active salts, esters, amides, prodrugs, metabolites, analogs, etc. Active agent can be a biological organism such as a virus or cell, whether naturally occurring or artificially modified, such as transformed.

The concept of "biocompatible polymer", "biocompatible crosslinked polymeric matrix" and "biocompatibility" is common in the technology. For example, biocompatible polymers include polymers, which is not toxic by themselves for the recipient (for example, the animal or human), not degrade (if the polymer is decomposed in such a degree, at which the recipient are formed Monomeric or oligomeric subunits or other by-products in toxic concentrations. In some embodiments, implementation of the present invention biodegradation in common includes the decomposition of the polymer in the body, for example, in its Monomeric structural subunit, which can be known as practically non-toxic. However, the intermediate oligomeric products resulting from such decomposition may have different Toxicological characteristics, or biodegradation may contain oxidation or other chemical reactions which form molecules other than Monomeric structural subunit of the polymer. Thus, in some embodiments, the implementation of toxicology biodegradable polymer, intended for use in vivo, such as implantation or injection, the patient may be determined after one or more tests for toxicity. There is no need for 100%purity of the investigated compositions, to read her biocompatible; indeed, it is only necessary that the investigated compositions were biocompatible, as described above. Thus, the analyzed composition may contain a polymer containing 99%, 98%, 97%, 96%, 95%, 90%, 85%, 80%, 75% or the even less biocompatible polymers, for example, including described in the present description, the polymers and other materials and excipients, and continue to be biocompatible.

To determine whether a polymer or other biocompatible material, it may be necessary analyses for toxicity. Such testing is well known in the prior art. One example of such analysis can be performed on living cells, such as HeLa, 293, Cho, and the like. The sample is partially or completely decompose, as is known in the prior art, using, for example, a chemical reagent or enzyme preparation. An aliquot of the products of the processing of the sample is placed in a cultural tablets with pre-seeded cells. Product samples incubated with cells. The results of the analysis can be plotted on a graph as a percent (%) relative growth depending on the concentration of the degraded sample.

In addition, monomers, polymers, polymer matrices and compositions according to the present invention can also be assessed well-known in vivo tests, such as subcutaneous implantation in rats to confirm that they do not cause significant levels of irritation or inflammation in areas of subcutaneous implantation.

The term "biodegradable" is a recognized technology and includes monomers, polymers, polymer is the matrix gels, compositions and formulations, such as described in the present description, which is assumed to be degraded during use, such as in vivo. Biodegradable polymers and matrix typically differ from the biologically indecomposable polymer so that the first may be degraded during use. In some embodiments, the implementation of such use includes the use of in vivo, such as therapy in vivo, and in other certain embodiments of the exercise of such use includes the use of in vitro. In General degradation attributable to biorthogonal includes the degradation of the biodegradable polymer and its composite structural subunits or cleavage of the polymer, for example, as a result of biochemical process into smaller polimernye subunit. In some embodiments, the implementation in General can be identified two different types of biodegradation. For example, one type of biodegradation may include splitting relations (whether covalent or any other) in the frame of the polymer. In this biodegradation is typically formed monomers and oligomers, and even more typically, such biodegradation occurs by cleavage of the link connecting one or more structural subunits in the polymer. In contrast, another type of biodegradation may contain a breakdown of communication (whether covalent or any other), h is held in the side chain, or this, which binds to the side chain functional group, and the like with a polymer frame. For example, a therapeutic drug, a biologically active agent, or other chemical substance, which is attached as a side chain to the frame of the polymer, can be released as a result of biodegradation. In some embodiments, the implement during use of the polymer can be one or the other or both of the common types of biodegradation. As used in the present description, the term "biodegradation" covers both General types of biological decomposition.

The rate of degradation of biodegradable polymer often depends to some extent on many factors, including the chemical nature communications responsible for any decomposition, molecular weight, crystallinity, biostability, and the degree of crosslinking of such a polymer, the physical characteristics of the implant, the shape and size, and method and location of the injection. For example, the larger the molecular weight, the higher the degree of crystallinity and/or the higher biostability, the usually slower biodegradation any biodegradable polymer. The term "biodegradable" assumes containing materials and processes, also referred to as "biologically erodium".

In certain embodiments, the implementation rate of biodegradation of such a polymer can is to be characterized by the presence of enzymes for example, chondroitinase. Under such circumstances, the rate of biodegradation may depend not only on the chemical nature and physical characteristics of the polymer matrix, but also on the nature of any such enzyme.

In certain embodiments of the exercise of the polymer compositions according to the present invention are biologically degrade within a period that is acceptable in the desired version of the application. In certain embodiments of the implement, such as a therapy in vivo, such degradation occurs over a period of time, usually less than about five years, one year, six months, three months, one month, fifteen days, five days, three days or even one day of exposure to a physiological solution with a pH value between 6 and 8 having a temperature of between about 25 and 37°C. In other embodiments implement the polymer degrades within a period of between about one hour and several weeks, depending on the desirable use. In some embodiments, the implementation of the polymer or polymer matrix can contain detective tool, which is released during degradation.

The concept of "sewn" in the present description refers to a composition containing intermolecular crosslinking and, optionally, intramolecular crosslinking that occurs, in General, resulting in the formation of the Cove is build relationships. Covalent binding of two stitched components may be direct, in which case the atom in one component directly connected with atom in another component, or may be indirect, through a group-a bunch. Cross-linked gel or polymer matrix, in addition to covalent bonds, can also contain intermolecular and/or intramolecular non-covalent connection, such as hydrogen bonds and electrostatic (ionic) bond.

The term "functionalized" refers to the modification of an existing molecular segment or group to create, or to introduce a new reactive or more reactive group (for example, kidney group)that can react with another functional group (e.g. amino group) with the formation of covalent bonds. For example, carboxylic acid groups can be functionalized by reaction with carbodiimide and emenim reagent when using the known methods for the formation of new reactive functional group in the form of kidney group, with the substitution of a hydrogen atom in the hydroxyl group of the carboxyl function.

The term "gel" refers to the object's state between liquid and solid, and in General is defined as the cross-linked polymer reticulate structure, swollen in a liquid medium. Typically the spruce is a two-phase colloidal dispersion, containing both solid and liquid, in which the amount of solids exceeds such that in a two-phase colloidal dispersion is referred to as "Sol". As such, the "gel" has some of the properties of the fluid (i.e. the form is elastic and deformable) and some properties of a rigid body (i.e. the form is discrete enough to support the three-dimensional configuration on a two-dimensional surface).

The concept of "time gilotinirovaniya", also referred to in this description as "gelation time"refers to time spent on that song became stagnant in conditions of moderate stress. In General, this manifests itself as an achievement of the physical state in which the elastic modulus, G', is equal to or greater than the modulus of viscosity, G”, i.e. the coefficient of damping of mechanical vibrations (tan Delta) is equal to 1 (as may be defined using commonly used rheological methods).

The hydrogel is a swelling in water of the polymer matrix, which can absorb water with the formation of an elastic gel, in which the matrix represent the three-dimensional mesh structure of macromolecules held together by covalent or non-covalent ligaments. When placed in an aqueous environment with the ixe hydrogels swell in the seizing of liquids to the level permissible degree of crosslinking.

Hydrogels consist of hydrophilic polymers, crosslinked with the formation of swelling in water, insoluble polymeric reticulated structure. Crosslinking can be initiated by many physical or chemical mechanisms. Photopolymerization is a method of covalent cross-linking of polymer chains, in which photoinitiator and the polymer solution (referred to as solution "pledges") are subjected to exposure light source, specific photoinitiator. When you activate photoinitiator react with specific functional groups in the polymer chains, matching them with the formation of the hydrogel. The reaction proceeds quickly (3-5 minutes) and held at room temperature and body temperature. Photoinductive gilotinirovaniya enables the spatial and temporal control of the formation of structural media (scaffold), allowing correction form after injection and during gilotinirovaniya in vivo. Cells and bioactive factors can be easily embedded in the hydrogel us simply mixing with the polymer solution before photogelatine.

Alternatively, the reactants may contain complementary reactive group, such as midna and amino group, which produce the binding without the need for external initiator is.

Described hydrogels may represent a partially interpenetrating net structures that promote cell regeneration, tissue and organ at the same time inhibiting the formation of scar. Described hydrogels are derivationally to contain imide, reactive towards the surface and/or the second interest of the polymer. Described hydrogels also configured to have a viscosity that will allow gilotinirovaniya the hydrogel to remain fixed in or on the cell, tissue or organ, or on the surface.

Alternatively, a therapeutic drug or other material can be completely immiscible with the polymer according to the invention, it is dispersed as small droplets, but is not soluble in the polymer. In the present invention any form of encapsulation or administration is considered such as how long the release of any encapsulated therapeutic agent or other material determines whether there is enough acceptable form of enkapsuliran the tion for any particular use.

When the composition is administered by injection, an ampoule of sterile water for injection or saline is placed, for example, set so that the ingredients can blend up call is to be placed.

Industrial product containing materials, applicable to the treatment of the above diseases. Industrial product includes a container and a label. Suitable containers include, for example, bottles, microtube (Wielki), syringes, and test tubes. The containers can be formed from various materials, such as glass or plastic materials. The container holds a composition which is effective for prevention or treatment, for example, wounds or disease of the joint, and may have a sterile input channel (for example, the container may be vialco with tube, sharp hypodermic needle for injection). The label applied to the container or associated with such, shows that the composition is used for treatment of the chosen state. Industrial product may further comprise a second container containing a pharmaceutically acceptable buffer, such as phosphate buffered buffered saline, ringer's solution and dextrose. It may further include other materials desirable from a commercial or custom of reasons, including buffers, diluents, filters, needles, syringes, and packaging inserts with instructions for use.

Biologically active agents and other additives can be incorporated in the crosslinked synthetic is kind of the polymer composition by blending in or added to the mixture of reagents. Alternatively, the agents can be introduced into the cross-linked polymer matrix by linking these agents with functional groups on the described polymers. Such compositions may contain ligaments, which can easily be subjected to biodegradation, for example, by enzymatic cleavage, leading to the release of the active agent or additive in the target tissue, where it will exhibit its desired therapeutic effect.

A simple way of introducing biologically active agents containing nucleophilic groups in the crosslinked polymeric composition includes mixing the active agent with polyelectrolytes component to add polynucleotides component. By varying the relative molar quantities of the various components of the reaction composition can change the total charge of the final cross-linked polymer composition, to prepare a matrix for the delivery of charged compounds, such as protein or an ionisable drug. As such, the delivery of charged proteins or drugs, which usually have to quickly diffuse from the neutral matrix-carrier can be controlled.

For example, if you use a molar excess of the component which is polynucleotides, the resulting matrix can have a positive net charge structures and can be used for ion binding and delivery of negatively charged compounds. Examples of negatively charged compounds that can be delivered from these matrices include a variety of drugs, cells, proteins and polysaccharides.

If you use a molar excess of the component which is polyelectrolytes, the resulting matrix has a net negative charge of the structure of charge and can be used for ion binding and delivery of positively charged compounds. Examples of positively charged compounds that can be delivered from these matrices include a variety of drugs, cells, proteins and polysaccharides.

Composition cross-linked polymer matrices according to the present invention can also be used for delivery of various types of living cells or genes to the desired injection for the formation of new tissue. As used in the present description, the term "genes" is supposed comprising genetic material from natural sources, synthetic nucleic acids, DNA, antisense DNA and RNA.

For example, mesenchymal stem cells can be delivered using polymeric matrices for the production of cells of the same type as the tissue in which they are delivered. Mesenchymal stem cells may be undifferentiated and therefore can differentiate with education is the use of various types of new cells by the presence of the active agent or agents (chemical, physical and so on) of the specific tissue. Examples of mesenchymal stem cells include osteoblasts, chondrocytes and fibroblasts. For example, osteoblasts can be delivered to the site of the bone defect to create new bone; the chondrocytes can be delivered to the site of the cartilage defect to create new cartilage; fibroblasts can be delivered for the formation of collagen whenever you want a new connective tissue; neuroectodermal cells can be delivered to the formation of new nerve tissue; epithelial cells can be delivered to the formation of new epithelial tissues, such as liver, pancreas, etc.

Cells can be allogeneic, or xenogeneic origin. The composition can be used to deliver the cells of interest, which are genetically modified.

In some embodiments, the implementation of the compositions according to the invention may not be easy degradation in vivo. Thus, cells captured within the compositions cross-linked polymer matrix, will be isolated from the cells of the recipient and, as such, will not provoke or will delay the immune response of the host.

To capture cells or genes within a cross-linked polymer matrix cells or genes can be, for example, pre-mixed with R the agent composition or optional, with the mixture prior to the formation of cross-linked polymer matrix, thereby introducing cells or genes inside the matrix.

In General the way of effective treatment of the surface of the hinge joint or disc or joint, spine and so on, within the body of a mammal subject components of the reaction composition are put into place that needs treatment. The present invention can be adapted to include appropriate media for this injection, implantation, infusion or delivery. Once in this place of the body, imitirovannymi biologically compatible polymer reacts with the surface and is associated with such, for example, cloth or prosthesis. Thus, imitirovannymi polymer is biologically fixed" on the fabric of the recipient and can then react with other surfaces, or polymers, such as described bridging molecule.

Alternatively, the polymer matrix may be formed from a semi-solid or solid object, suitable for implantation in an anatomical region, or in the form of a film or mesh that can be used to cover the segment area or surface. Various methods of implantation of solid objects into the appropriate anatomical region most likely familiar to a qualified specialist in this field the minute technology.

In some embodiments, the implementation disclosed in the present description of the composition can be placed in a surgically created defect, which must be reconstructed, and should be left in this position after the reconstruction was completed. The present invention may be suitable for use in the local reconstructions tissue reconstruction of the pedicle flaps, sealing corneal flaps or reconstructions of free plastic flaps.

In some embodiments implementing the present invention relates to kits for rapprochement between tissues or parts of tissues, such as for sealing or healing.

Disclosed in the present description sets will contain a container that is used to describe emalirovannoi polymer. The set can contain the device delivery. The set does not necessarily contain a container used for the second of the described polymer. Can be included instructions on their application.

Applications such kits include, for example, therapeutic use. The invention is kits for use in treating the disease or condition. For example, a set may contain imitirovannymi biologically compatible polymer, such as imitirovannymi chondroitin-sulfate, and biocompatible polymer or compound containing AMI is hydrated fragment, such as the aminecontaining glycol.

In certain embodiments of the implementation of the described polymer can be formed with desired structures, such as films, foams, scaffold or other three-dimensional structures of interest. Under such circumstances, in the described composition can be included with other materials in addition to one or more biologically active agents. For example, in the composition according to the present invention can be introduced known in the technology of plasticizers and stabilizers. Component set can be a solid structure. Thus, the described imitirovannymi biologically compatible polymer may be applied to a biological surface in the form of a solid structure with capability to react with the biological surface. Then bridge molecule may be closer to fixed biologically compatible polymer to interact with the latter.

In other embodiments, the implementation of a biologically compatible polymer is used without bridging molecules. Thus, imitirovannymi biologically compatible polymer is used as the adhesive. The polymer may be applied in liquid form on the biological surface. Alternatively, the polymer can be combined with an inert structure that is may provide support or to serve as a carrier for the polymer, such as a substrate for an adhesive bandage or structure or device having a desirable destination.

Described imitirovannymi polymer can be brought into interaction with the first and second cloth if possible to simultaneously respond to those. Kidnie groups react with functional groups of tissue, such as free amino groups of the lysine of the protein fragments.

In yet another embodiment, kidny fragment or one of imenik fragments or other functional group is reactive with respect to not only the fabric, but also to another substance used in an organism, such as a prosthesis, a hydrogel, us), matrix and so on. Thus, the described functionalized polymer can be used for fixing the substance to the tissue or to a particular place in the body.

Disclosed in the present description of the composition can be used in any number of variants of tissue repair, such as, but not limited to such, prevention seroma and bruises, accession skin or muscle flap, eliminating, or preventing endoprotease, eliminating stratification of the aorta, the restoration of the volume of the lung, the restoration of the neural tube, the sealing corneal incisions, reconstructive retina and holding microvascular is about and neural anastomosis.

In one embodiment, the restoration of damaged tissue can be carried out within any standard surgical process, providing access to restore tissue, including open surgery and laparoscopic techniques. Once the damaged tissue is available, the composition according to the invention is placed to contact with the damaged tissue, together with any surgical dressing or implant if necessary. Being used to restore broken or separated tissues, such as when connecting two or more tissue surfaces, for example, with subsequent surgical intervention, the composition may be applied to one or more tissue surfaces, and then the surface brought into contact with each other, and between such adhesion occurs.

Being used to restore the protruding tissue, surgically acceptable bandage may be applied to the area of tissue surrounding the protruding fabric to cover the protruding region, thereby strengthening the damaged tissue and eliminating the defect. While the bandage on the surrounding tissue composition according to the invention can be applied to either a bandage on the surrounding tissue, or on a bandage after bandage was applied to the protruding tissue. When the behavior of the lubricant and the fabric will be brought into contact with each other, among these may occur adhesion.

The surface that you want to glue that can hold together manually, or using other suitable means such as adhesive tape, temporary stitch and so on, until the crosslinking reaction does not take place until completion. Joining typically flows enough for adhesion within about 5 to 60 seconds after mixing of the components of the adhesive composition, unless the desired slow curing. However, the time required for full flow of stitching depends on a number of factors, including the type and molecular weight of each reaction component, the degree of functionalization and the concentration of the components in stitched composites (for example, higher concentrations are the result of more rapid binding).

In one embodiment, the composition according to the present invention are delivered to the injection site using a device that allows components to act separately, for example, sequentially or simultaneously. Such delivery systems may include a multi-chamber sputtering device.

Alternatively, the components can be delivered separately using any type of controlled extrusion system, or they can be delivered manually in the form of a separate pastes, liquids which she or dry powders and mixed with each other manually at the injection site. Many devices which are adapted for delivery of multicomponent tissue adhesives/hemostatic means well known in the technology and can also be used in the practice of the present invention.

Another way of delivery of the compositions according to the present invention is the preparation of the reaction components in the inactivated form of liquid or powder. Such compositions can then be activated after the application in the proper place on the fabric, or just before it, by hydration or application of, for example, activator. In one embodiment, the activator is a buffer solution having a pH value at which you want to activate the composition being mixed with it. Another way of delivery of the compositions is in the preparation of pre-formed sheets and drawing sheets as such in the introduction. A qualified specialist in this field of technology can easily determine the appropriate methodology introduction for the use of any specific composition with a known strength of the gel and the gelation time

Described in the present description of the composition can be used for therapeutic conditions that require coating or sealing layer to prevent the deposits of gas leakage, liquid or solid substances. The method involves the application of a reagent(tov) on the damaged tissue or organ for sealing 1) vascular and/or other tissues or organs to stop or minimize bleeding; 2) tissue in the chest to stop or minimize the leakage of air; 3) gastrointestinal tract or pancreatic tissue to stop or minimize the leakage of faeces or tissue content; 4) the bladder or ureters to stop or minimize the leakage of urine; 5) Dura to stop or minimize the leakage of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); and 6) skin or serous tissue to stop the leakage of serous fluid. These compositions can also be used for bonding with each other tissues such as small vessels, nerves or skin tissue. The material can be used 1) by applying it to the surface of one fabric, and then the second fabric can be quickly pressed against the first tissue, or 2) putting tissues in close contact and then applying the material. In addition, the composition can be used to fill cavities in soft and hard tissues that occur as a result of disease or surgical intervention.

For example, the composition of the polymer matrix according to the invention can be used in owani to block or fill various voids or pores in the body of a mammal subject. The composition can also be used as a biological adhesive means for sealing cracks or breaks inside the tissue or structure (such as a vessel), or joints between adjacent tissues or structures, to prevent leakage of blood or other biological fluid.

The composition can also be used as a device to fill large openings to bias the body in the body cavity during a surgical or radiological procedures, for example, to protect the intestines during the planned course of radiation therapy to the pelvic region.

Compositions according to the invention can be also applied in the form of a coating on the inner surface of a physiological lumen such as a blood vessel or fallopian tube, thereby fulfilling the function of a seal to prevent restenosis of the lumen after therapeutic treatment, such as balloon catheterization to remove deposits of arterial plaques with the inner surface of the blood vessel, or remove scar tissue or endometrial tissue from inside the fallopian tubes. A thin layer of the reaction mixture is preferably applied to the inner surface of the vessel (for example, through a catheter) immediately after mixing the first and second synthetic polymers. Because of the composition according to the invention do not undergo the easy degradation in vivo, possible restenosis due to degradation of the coating is minimized.

Compositions according to the invention can also be used for augmentation of soft or hard tissue within the body of a mammal subject. Examples of applications for soft tissue augmentation include sphincter augmentation (for example, urinary, anal, ezofagealnogo) and removing wrinkles and scars. Examples of applications for hard tissue augmentation include restoration and/or replacement of bone and/or cartilage.

Now, when the invention is in General described, it will be more understandable with the involvement of the following examples which are included merely for purposes of illustration of certain aspects and embodiments of the present invention and are not intended to limit the invention.

Example 1

Receive donor corneoscleral discs unsuitable for transplantation. The cornea is stored in standard conditions of the eye Bank Optison-GS (Bausch & Lomb, Inc., San Dimas, CA) at 4°C. the Procedure is performed for no longer than 10 days after death, as stated in the work of authors Reyes et al., Invest. Ophthal. Vis. Sci., volume 46 (No. 4), pages 1247 (2005)who report the use of derivatizing aldehyde group chondroitin-sulfate with polyvinyl alcohol to have is latania corneal incisions. However, the toxicity of these reagents has not been determined.

To perform keratectomy with a hinged flap use manual microkeratome (LSK One; firm Moria USA, Doylestown, Pennsylvania) just outside the center hole of the eye camera method, which obtained a large flap. This hole is like artificial unexpanded the pupil, which could be a reference point in a medical facility. For all corneas use a cylinder with a thickness of 300 μm. As is known in the technology, to maintain corneoscleral discs used artificial anterior chamber (ALTK System; firm Moria USA). Gearless guides on the base plate of the artificial anterior chamber is designed to fit to the head of the microkeratome, to pass along the cornea was maintained in the same plane and direction. All discs with rear stroma, shell Descemet and layer endotelialnyj cells obtained with the use of 6.25 mm round trephine drills manual.

Infusion of isotonic sodium chloride conduct before corneoscleral discs placed at the base of the anterior chamber, to remove residual air from the infusion tube, and from under the cornea. The bottle with the solution rises to a height of 1.5 m above the level of the camera to achieve the proper chamber pressure (60-70 mm Hg) PE is ed pass microkeratome. Corneal center according to the circular guide in the base of the camera. Mechanical epithelial scraping performed using 2.5 mm vertical sickle knife with a rounded end (Beaver, Becton Dickinson Surgical Systems, Franklin lakes, new Jersey), in order to avoid surface irregularities due to the free epithelium, which may cause errors in each videokeratography measurements.

Artificial anterior chamber is configured to achieve the maximum diameter of the graft in all cases. Manipulation is regarded as a larger area in the stromal bed to perform trepidatio and closing of the flap. All surgical operations are performed by the same surgeon in order to avoid variability typical of different surgeons, using a surgical microscope (Ophthalmic 900S; firm Moeller-Wedel, Hamburg, Germany).

To simulate clinical conditions on the corneal surface before passing through the microkeratome put a few drops of hydrochloride of proparacaine. The keratectomy with partial flap carried out by passing the head microkeratome with its oscillating blade at a relatively constant speed along the plate, stopping just behind the Central aperture of the camera. This approach differs from previously published techniques in attempts is to get wide hinged flap with a relatively low probability of displacement of the flap, to add more stability to the flap of the cornea and reduce a hole in the cornea. The remaining stroma under the hinged flap is separated using a 2-millimeter eye spatula of Caller (Sparta Surgical Corporation, Concord, California), to leave adequate space to perform the Central trepidatio. The internal chamber pressure return to the value of 18 to 20 mm Hg by reducing the height of the lift the bottle with the solution isotonic solution of sodium chloride up to 25 cm above the level of the cornea, and trepan center according keratectomy and pupillary" edge created artificially Central hole camera. For complete circular incision stromal bed use manual trephine diameter of 6.25 mm Blade round trephine drills gently pull up to the perforation, and the rest of the circular section complete with corneal scissors. Donor drives are placed in the recipient bed, leave unembroidered, and is placed back.

The experiment consists of two groups of four of the cornea in each. In one group (Group 1) flap is fixed with five interrupted sutures (10/0-nylon, firm Sharpoint Surgical Specialties Corporation, reading, Pennsylvania). The technique of seam is the same for all corneas for consistency.

In the second group (Group 2) flap is fixed with the use of tissue adhesive on navalnogo on emalirovannoy chondroitin-sulfate and aminecontaining polyethylene glycol.

Bridge component, 10%of aminecontaining polyethylene glycol, are used to cover the chondroitin-sulfate-imide (CS-I). Polyethylene glycol (PEG) intentionally colored in blue color using biocompatible dye (Cibacron Blue; firm Sigma-Aldrich). The embellishment of the bridge component allows to observe directly polymerized adhesive means relative to the incision and ensures that the adhesive agent does not have access to the front of the camera.

For the deposition of chondroitin-sulfate-imide (CS) on the wound edges using a 2.5 mm vertical sickle knife with rounded end (Beaver, BD Surgical Systems). A thin layer is applied to cover the cut surface and the inner edges of the wound. Then, using the second sickle knife apply a thin layer bridging component adhesive (aminecontaining polyethylene glycol, PEG-amine) on top of the first layer. Two components leave to cure for 30 seconds. As soon as the adhesive agent hardens, producing infusion of saline solution.

In both groups transplantirovannam drive leave without sewing or adhesive means, as he tends to stay in place due to surface tension after the internal chamber pressure reaches 15-18 mm Hg

After removal of the epithelium infusion of isotonic chloride is sodium stop and measure the corneal thickness using ultrasonic pachymetry (Pach IV, the firm Accutome Inc., Malvern, Pennsylvania) in the center of the cornea. The second measurement is carried out after the creation of the hinged flap and bending it from the stromal bed. Then calculate the thickness at the center of the flap.

For analysis of surface curvature apply commercial videokeratography (firm EyeSys Laboratories, Inc., Houston, Texas). Manual keratoscope ("Placido disk") is placed in a vertical position, and the camera center, respectively, to control the monitor. Observe caution in maintaining orientation in the preoperative and postoperative registrations. For each cornea before surgery and after surgery performed in three dimensions.

To assess the stability of the graft gradually increase in chamber pressure. Monitor for leaks, and the pressure is recorded by a digital manometer (Digimano 1000, firm Netech Corp., The Hicksville, New York).

Calculations performed using StatsDirect, version 1.9.0 for Windows (CamCode, Asheville, England). Describe the average value, standard deviation (SD), minimum and maximum values.

Fabric glue tool provides a good seal and less astigmatism than the other messages on the back lamellar keratoplasty using a microkeratome. Further, the lack of seams makes the technique easier and significantly reduces the straps.

The composition according to the present invention can be used for bonding two separate surfaces, at least one of which is a biological surface. Thus, the present composition can be used to seal wounds or holes by closing the open edges close to each other. The seal may be long-term or maybe short-term, depending on the degree of biorthogonal components of the adhesive. Briefly, the seal can provide adequate time for healing or leakage of natural closing holes. Alternatively, the described adhesive may be applied for bonding non-biological, but biocompatible surface to the biological surface. Such non-biological surface may be, for example, prosthesis, medical device and so on.

Example 2

The method of synthesis of N-hydroxysuccinimide derived chondroitin sulfate (CS-NHS) using carbodiimide was known in the technology. Emenee derived significantly improves the efficiency and biocompatibility. Also synthesized derivatives of chondroitin sulfate (CS-Amin)to act as a donor of amino groups. For example, chondroitin sulphate (CS), succinimide and deemed in a ratio of about 3:3:1, the COO is responsible, can be introduced into the reaction in a small volume of saline solution within a short period of time. Suitable ratio of the three reactants may be about 75:100:38, as the choice of methods.

In yet another embodiment, chondroitin sulphate (CS) (750 mg) was dissolved in 6 ml of buffered phosphate buffer saline (PBS). 1.5 ml of PBS solution was dissolved 1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide (EDC, 1,572 g, 8.2 mmol). Preparing a solution of 3.3 mmol of N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) by dissolving 380 mg in 1.5 ml PBS. A solution of N-hydroxysuccinimide (NHS) and carbodiimide (EDC) dobavliali to a solution of chondroitin sulfate (CS), and the mixture was stirred vortex stirring and left to react for 10 minutes at 37°C. the Reaction mixture is then cooled for 30 minutes at a temperature of -80°C, and precipitated with ethanol. The solution is then centrifuged for 5 minutes, and the supernatant was removed and washed.

Crosslinked chondroitin sulfate (CS) net structures synthesized in a variety of ratios NHS:NH2as shown in the Table below. The polymer solutions with a concentration of 10% (weight parts by volume) were prepared at the ratios of CS-NHS to PEG-(NH2)6comprising 1:1, 1:2 and 2:1. The reactants PEG-(NH2)6and CS-NHS was dissolved in DMEM with the formation of three different concentrations: 1,3%, 10% and 6.67% (ratio by weight parts by volume). Reagent CS-NHS (50 ml) was added into the mold, then add 50 ál of aminecontaining of polyethylene glycol (PEG-(NH2)6) and was stirred. After 10 minutes, the mesh was removed from the mold and transferred into a solution of PBS for measuring the degree of swelling.

Description50 μl of CS-NHS (wt.% per unit volume)50 μl of amino-polyethylene glycol (PEG-amine) (wt.% per unit volume)
1:1 CS-NHS:PEG-amine1010
1:2 CS-NHS:PEG-amineto 6.6713,3
2:1 CS-NHS:PEG-amine13,3to 6.67

Stitched mesh structure is then evaluated against swelling and cytocompatibility (cells encapsulated in mesh structures or cultivated close to those). The swelling characteristics are critical for applications as eye adhesive means, as excessive swelling may disclose reinforced wound or cause stigmatism. Mesh patterns were created with encapsules the private cells and without them. Potential delivery of cells within the adhesive applicable for large wounds of the cornea, which require the formation of some new fabrics in addition to seal wounds. Chondroitin sulphate (CS) net patterns were comparable with polietilenglikolya (PEG) control net structures in all reports.

Fibroblasts were encapsulated in the net structure of CS-PEG-amine with different ratios, 1:1, 1:2 and 2:1. The control PEG-net patterns were obtained at a concentration of 5%, 10% and 20% (weight parts by volume). Cells were stained for survival analysis using a commercially available kit. The number of living cells in all gels was comparable, indicating that the gels based on chondroitin-sulfate-imide (CS-I) were biocompatible.

In another experiment reagents CS-NHS and branched polyethylene glycol (PEG) was dissolved in PBS containing various amounts of HEPES buffer, for example, 10 mm, 100 mm, 500 mm and 1000 mm HEPES buffer. The reagents were stirred until gelation occurred, until, when to take a sample of the reagent pipette was impossible. It was noted that the time curve of gelation goes on gently sloping land with approximately 100 mm HEPES buffer. With increasing concentration of HEPES buffer was low decrease in the volume of the gel, presumably as a result of increasing the degree with which ivci with increasing concentrations of HEPES buffer. Module, or the strength of the gel, in General also increased with increasing concentration of HEPES buffer. At a concentration of 500 mm module in a small degree has declined, with a large standard deviation.

Cells from the nucleus pulposus, the annulus, chondrocytes, keratocyte, endothelial cells of the cornea, the epithelial cells of the cornea and mesenchymal stem cells were tested for cytotoxicity with a variety of gels according to the present invention. Cells were encapsulated in diverse described gels. Monitoring cells was at least over a period of more than 21 days. As a control, cells were treated with 5%diacrylates of polyethylene glycol. Gels contained chondroitin sulphate (CS) and polyethylene glycol (PEG) at the ratios of CS:PEG 1:2, 1:1 and 2:1. Some gels contain hyaluronic acid (ON) or glucosamine (GlcN), in General the gel ratio CS:PEG 1:1 contained an equal part of hyaluronic acid (ON) or glucosamine (GlcN). In all circumstances, the viability of cells was maintained throughout the 21-day test period. Endothelial cells of the cornea on the 8th day showed the level of cell proliferation was observed anti-apoptotic effect.

In another series of experiments to CS-PEG-gels, prepared as described above was added collagen to final concentrations OK the lo of 0.15% (weight parts by volume). Observed an increase in module 1.75±0.08 fold compared with CS-PEG-gels without collagen. It was hypothesized that the collagen acts as a dispersion included in the gel matrix and thus gives the gel properties of the composite.

The primary amino groups of collagen can interact with imename groups CS-NHS in the described gel. Therefore, the collagen may be crosslinked with gel matrix by covalent binding. This reinforcement stitching may lead to reduced adhesion of the gel due to the reduced number of available imenik groups in CS-NHS. One approach to prevent covalent binding between collagen gel matrix is to use functionalized collagen, such as collagen, in which the amino group is substituted, to minimize the reactivity of the amino group. For example, the amino group may be modified by the introduction of acetyl groups, alkyl groups, and so forth, as described above. This should lead to a gel with a high modulus without sacrificing adhesion to tissues.
