Assessment of axonal infiltration and guidance within neural tissue engineering scaffolds, along with the characterisation of the inflammatory response, is critical in determining these scaffolds' potential for facilitating neural repair. In this study, the extent of microglial and astrocytic response was measured following implantation of electrospun poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) scaffolds into the caudate putamen of the adult rat brain. The inflammation peaked at around 4 days (microglia) and 7...[Show more]
