- ... While polycaprolactone (PCL) and similar polyesters are commonly used as degradable scaffold materials in tissue engineering and related applications, non-specific adsorption of environmental proteins typically precludes any control over the signalling pathways that are activated during cell adhesion to these materials. Here we describe the preparation of PCL-based fibres that facilitate cell adhe ...
