Understanding interaction between heart muscle cells and nanoscaffoding

Researchers from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have researched nanofibrous scaffold structure and its interaction with rat heart muscle cells.  This study revealed that cardiac muscle cells envelop nanofibers as they grow, but fibroblasts tend to spread out on fibers forming several focal adhesion sites. Nanofibers enveloped by Heart muscle cells. The 3-D …

New nanofiber bandages accelerate healing process

Researchers from National University of Science and Technology MSIS has presented a new therapeutic material based on nanofibers made of polycaprolactone modified with a thin-film antibacterial composition and plasma components of human blood. Biodegradable bandages made from these fibers will accelerate the growth of tissue cells twice as quickly, contributing to the normal regeneration of …

Development of thin-film biomaterials using nanofibres to be used as scaffolding for bone regeneration

In future, it may be possible to use nanofibres to improve the attachment of bone implants, or the fibres may be used directly to scaffold bone regeneration. This would aid the healing of fractures and may enable the care of osteoporosis. This is detailed in a new dissertation. Hydroxyapatite nanofibre film produced at the University …
