This article describes an electrospinning process to fabricate double-layered ultrafine fibers. A bioabsorbable polymer, Polycaprolactone (PCL), was used as the outer layer or the shell and two medically pure drugs, Resveratrol (RT, a kind of antioxidant) and Gentamycin Sulfate (GS, an antibiotic), were used as the inner layers or the cores. Morphology and(More)
Chitosan, a naturally occurring polysaccharide with abundant resources, has been extensively exploited for various biomedical applications, typically as wound dressings owing to its unique biocompatibility, good biodegradability and excellent antibacterial properties. In this work, composite nanofibrous membranes of chitosan (CS) and silk fibroin (SF) were(More)
In this work, drug-loaded fibers and threads were successfully fabricated by combining electrospinning with aligned fibers collection. Two different electrospinning processes, that is, blend and coaxial electrospinning, to incorporate a model drug tetracycline hydrochloride (TCH) into poly(L-lactic acid) (PLLA) fibers have been used and compared with each(More)
Surface fuctionalization plays a crucial role in developing efficient nanoparticulate drug-delivery systems by improving their therapeutic efficacy and minimizing adverse effects. Here we propose a simple layer-by-layer self-assembly technique capable of constructing mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) into a pH-responsive drug delivery system with(More)
Electrospinning offers an attractive opportunity for producing silk fibroin (SF) nano/micro fibrous scaffolds with potential for tissue regeneration and repair. Electrospun scaffolds of silk fibroin were fabricated as a biomimetic scaffold for tissue engineering. The morphology of the electrospun scaffolds was investigated with SEM and AFM. The SEM images(More)
The development of three-dimensional (3-D) scaffolds with highly open porous structure is one of the most important issues in tissue engineering. In this study, 3-D macroporous gelatin/hyaluronic acid (GE/HA) hybrid scaffolds with varying porous morphology were prepared by freeze-drying their blending solutions and subsequent chemical crosslinking by using(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate an innovative tissue engineering scaffold with a controllable drug-releasing capability. The hypothesis is that the nanofibers fabricated by coaxial electrospinning could encapsulate and release sustainedly Tetracycline Hydrochloride (TCH). To testify the hypothesis, nanofibers were prepared by coaxial electrospinning(More)
Collagen functionalized thermoplastic polyurethane nanofibers (TPU/collagen) were successfully produced by coaxial electrospinning technique with a goal to develop biomedical scaffold. A series of tests were conducted to characterize the compound nanofiber and its membrane in this study. Surface morphology and interior structure of the ultrafine fibers were(More)
Chitosan-poly(L-lactic acid-co-epsilon-caprolactone)(50:50) (P(LLA-CL)) (CS/P(LLA-CL)) blends were electrospun into nanofibers using 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoro-2-propanol (HFIP) and trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) as solvents. Chitosan, which is difficult to electrospin into nanofibers, could be easily electrospun into nanofibers with addition of a small portion of(More)
