A biodegradable nanofiber scaffold by electrospinning and its potential for bone tissue engineering.


Microporous, non-woven poly( epsilon -caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds were made by electrostatic fiber spinning. In this process, polymer fibers with diameters down to the nanometer range, or nanofibers, are formed by subjecting a fluid jet to a high electric field. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) derived from the bone marrow of neonatal rats were cultured… (More)
