OBJECTIVES: One procedure to treat stenotic coronary arteries is the percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). In recent years, drug eluting stents (DES) have demonstrated elaborate ways to improve outcomes of intravascular interventions. To enhance DESs, the idea has evolved to design stents that elute specific small interfering RNA (siRNA) for better vascular wall regeneration. The layer-by-layer (LbL) technology offers the possibility to incorporate siRNA nanoplexes (NPs) to achieve bioactive medical implant coatings. METHODS AND RESULTS: The LbL technique was used to achieve hyaluronic-acid/chitosan (HA/Chi) films with incorporated Chi-siRNA NPs. The multilayer growth was monitored by quartz crystal microbalance (QCM). The coating on stents and the thickness were analyzed using fluorescence and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). All stents showed homogenous coating, and the polyelectrolyte multilayers (PEMs) were not disrupted after ethylene oxide (ETO) sterilization or expansion. The in vitro uptake of fluorescent-labelled NPs from PEMs in primary human endothelial cells (ECs) was analyzed by flow cytometry for 2, 6, and 9 days. Furthermore, stents coated with HA/Chi and Chi-siRNA NPs were expanded into porcine arteries and showed ex vivo delivery of NPs. The films showed no critical results in terms of hemocompatibility. CONCLUSION: This study demonstrates that Chi-siRNA NPs can be incorporated into PEMs consisting of HA and Chi. We conclude that the NPs were delivered to ECs under in vitro conditions. Furthermore, under ex vivo conditions, NPs were transferred into porcine artery walls. Due to their good hemocompatibility, they might make an innovative tool for achieving bioactive coatings for coronary stents.
