Paper Title:
The Effect of Diameter of Electronspun PGA Scaffold for Biological Behaviour of Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells
  Abstract

The objective of this work was to investigate cell adhesion, Poly Glycolic Acid (PGA) and PGA/ collagen nano-fibers on the silicone membrane. PGA with the weight-mixing ration of 40% was fabricated through the electronspun technique. The behaviors of Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial cells on these scaffolds are evaluated. The highest cell adhesion was observed in the PGA/collagen fibers with the diameter of 500 nm. This study indicates the effect of nano-fibers on the Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial cells for better understanding of interactions of cells with scaffold materials. Such information will have important implications for implantable vascular tissue engineering constructs.
