A 3D nanocomposite scaffold of chitosan, gelatin and nano-silica was fabricated by lyophilization to test the hypothesis that incorporation of nano-SiO2 could produce a better candidate for bone tissue engineering compared to pure chitosan and chitosan/gelatin scaffolds. The prepared scaffold was characterized using SEM and FTIR. Porosity, density,(More)
In this work, the attachment, viability and functionality of rat Blood Outgrowth Endothelial Cells (rBOEC) and genetically modified rBOEC (rBOEC/eNOS-GFP), which over express endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), were investigated on Poly(lactic acid) (PLA)-chitosan and PLA-chitosan-collagen nanofibrous scaffolds. Both the cell types displayed good(More)
