Schwann cell interactions with polymer films are affected by groove geometry and film hydrophilicity.

Abstract

We have developed a biodegradable polymer scaffold made of a polycaprolactone/polylactic acid (PCL/PLA) film. Surface properties such as topography and chemistry have a vital influence on cell-material interactions. Surface modifications of PCL/PLA films were performed using topographical cues and UV-ozone treatment to improve Schwann cell organisation and… (More)
