: In order to identify new bioactive glasses (BGs) with optimal antioxidant properties, we carried out an evaluation of a series of cerium-doped BGs [Ce-BGs─H, K, and mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBGs)] loaded with different biomolecules, namely, gallic acid, polyphenols (POLY), and anthocyanins. Quantification of loading at variable times highlighted POLY on MBGs as the system with the highest loading. The ability to dismutate hydrogen peroxide (catalase-like activity) of the BGs evaluated is strongly correlated with cerium doping, while it is marginally decreased compared to the parent BG upon loading with biomolecules. Conversely, unloaded Ce-BGs show only a marginal ability to dismutate the superoxide anion (SOD)-like activity, while upon loading with biomolecules, POLY in particular, the SOD-like activity is greatly enhanced for these materials. Doping with cerium and loading with biomolecules give complementary antioxidant properties to the BGs investigated; combined with the persistent bioactivity, this makes these materials prime candidates for upcoming studies on biological systems.

Abstract

: In order to identify new bioactive glasses (BGs) with optimal antioxidant properties, we carried out an evaluation of a series of cerium-doped BGs [Ce-BGs─H, K, and mesoporous bioactive glasses (MBGs)] loaded with different biomolecules, namely, gallic acid, polyphenols (POLY), and anthocyanins. Quantification of loading at variable times highlighted POLY on MBGs as the system with the highest loading. The ability to dismutate hydrogen peroxide (catalase-like activity) of the BGs evaluated is strongly correlated with cerium doping, while it is marginally decreased compared to the parent BG upon loading with biomolecules. Conversely, unloaded Ce-BGs show only a marginal ability to dismutate the superoxide anion (SOD)-like activity, while upon loading with biomolecules, POLY in particular, the SOD-like activity is greatly enhanced for these materials. Doping with cerium and loading with biomolecules give complementary antioxidant properties to the BGs investigated; combined with the persistent bioactivity, this makes these materials prime candidates for upcoming studies on biological systems.
