Abstract

Targeting wound repair, we developed an electrospun poly-L-lactide fibrous scaffold functionalized with G-CSF, a growth factor which is widely recognized as important in wound healing homeostasis. The scaffold was characterized in terms of morphology, mechanical properties and in vitro capacity to induce organization of co-cultures of murine fibroblasts and keratinocytes into a dermo-epidermal multilayered structure. Our findings are consistent with the promotion of a nonhostile environment, in which seeded cells could arrange themselves in an appropriate topographic distribution of elements at different levels of maturation up to a cornified epithelium on the top layer, resembling native skin.
