Calcitriol (1,25(OH)2D3)-loaded porous poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) scaffolds prepared by solvent casting/salt leaching method were used to repair a 1.5 cm diaphyseal segmental bone defect as a fully absorbable osteogenic biomaterial. The in vitro release of sulforhodamine B (SRB) from PLGA scaffold was measured using spectrophotometer, considering SRB as a model drug. The SRB released from SRB-incorporated PLGA scaffold during 3 months was with relatively low initial burst. The calcitriol-loaded PLGA scaffolds with or without marrow stromal cells (MSCs) were implanted in a critical-sized intercalated bone defect in rabbit femur. Defects were assessed by radiographs until 9 weeks. The bony union of the defect was observed only in the calcitriol-loaded groups. RT-PCR results indicated that MSCs, which were seeded into calcitriol-loaded scaffold, expressed an increased level of alkaline phosphatase, osteonectin, and type I collagen mRNA at day 10. After 2 and 4 weeks, the implanted scaffolds were evaluated by histology. New osteoid matrix and direct calcium deposits were more evident in calcitriol/PLGA/MSC group. Three-dimensional computed tomography and frontal tomographic images of repaired femur showed that normal femur anatomy had been restored with cortical bone with no implanted PLGA remnants at 20 weeks. It can be concluded that the porous calcitriol-loaded PLGA scaffold combined with MSCs may be a novel method for repairing the large loaded bone defect.
