Abstract:

<p>Here we report a novel bioactive electrospun mat based on poly(L-lactide-co-caprolactone) (PLLC) and collagen for wound dressing and sustained drug delivery of gentamicin. PLLC/collagen electrospun mat loaded with 10% gentamicin showed bioactivity for 15 days against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The in vitro cell culture of 3T3 fibroblasts confirmed that these electrospun mat provide an increased specific interface area and hydrophilicity to enhance cell attachment, proliferation, and migration. The modified PLLC/collagen mat provided an excellent enhancement in properties of antibacterial wound dressings with a minimum in vitro toxicity and high potency for promoting wound healing stages. © 2017 Taylor &amp; Francis.</p>
