Paper Abstract

Scaffold for cell therapy was prepared with poly (lactide-co-glicolide, PLA/PGA (10:90). By using melt-spinning and draw texturing process, we could prepare microfibrous bulky suture which had heterogeneous macropore. Microfibrous structure has great potentiality as biomimicking architecture for cell growth and maintaining cell functions. The result of cell seeding showed that pore size, pore distribution, and fiber fineness of sutures were suitable as a biocompatible scaffold in vitro for NIH 3T3 Fibroblast cell. Also, we expect that prepared scaffold for cell-therapy will provide numerous benefits as a noninvasive alternative for tissue engineering applications.
