Injectable hydrogels offer great potential to augment damaged or degenerated soft tissues. A key criterion for such gels is that their modulus is as close as possible to that of the target tissue. The majority of synthetic hydrogels have used low molecular weight polymer chains which may cause problems if they diffuse away from the injection site and/or increase the local osmotic pressure. We previously introduced a different approach of injecting preformed ultra-high molecular weight pH-responsive microgels (MGs) that interlink to form hydrogels. MGs are crosslinked polymer colloid particles that swell when the pH approaches the particle pKa. These colloidal hydrogels are termed doubly crosslinked microgels (DX MGs). The gel moduli of previous DX MGs were much greater than that reported for human nucleus pulposus (NP) tissue of the spinal intervertebral disk. Here, we replace some of the pH-responsive poly(ethyl acrylate-co-methacrylic acid) (PEA-MAA) MGs with hydrophilic non-ionic MGs based on poly(N-vinylformamide) (NVF). We investigate the morphology and mechanical properties of these new injectable composite DX MGs and show that the mechanical properties can be tuned by systematically varying the NVF MG content. Using this approach, the gel moduli close to that for NP tissue are achieved. These injectable new pH-responsive gels exhibit low cytotoxicity. Our work provides a potential new system for minimally invasive intervertebral disk augmentation.
