The favorable biological properties of silk fibroin (SF) nanofiber membrane make it a good candidate for clinical applications as a device in bone and periodontal regenerative therapy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biocompatibility of the SF nanofiber membrane, and to examine its effect on bone regeneration in a rabbit calvarial model. To examine the biocompatibility of the electrospun SF membrane, we investigated cell proliferation, morphology, and differentiation. The bone… CONTINUE READING
