Title
Validation of a high-throughput methodology to assess the effects of biomaterials on dendritic cell phenotype
Abstract

A variety of combination products composed of biomaterials and biologics have been developed for tissue regeneration or vaccine delivery. The host immune response to the immunogenic biological components in such products may be modulated by the biomaterial component. Distinct biomaterials have been shown to differentially affect the maturation of dendritic cells (DCs). DCs are professional antigen-presenting cells (APCs) that bridge innate and adaptive immunity and play a central role in inducing immunity or initiating immune tolerance. However, the biomaterials systems used to study DC response thus far have been insufficient to draw a clear conclusion as to which biomaterial properties are the key to controlling DC phenotype. In this study, we developed a 96-well filter plate-based high-throughput (HTP) methodology to assess DC maturation upon biomaterial treatment. Equivalent biomaterial effects on DC phenotype were measured using the conventional flow cytometric and filter-plate method, which validated the HTP methodology. This methodology will be used to screen a large number of biomaterials simultaneously and to draw correlations between material properties and DC phenotype, thereby providing biomaterial design criteria and immunomodulatory strategies for both tissue engineering and vaccine delivery applications.
