In vitro Evaluation of PHBV/PCL Blends for Bone Tissue Engineering

The objective of this study was to evaluate Vero cells in in vitro biocompatibility tests with pure PHBV and PCL and 75/25 and 50/50 blends developed for bone tissue bioengineering in dense or porous forms. The biomaterials were characterized morphologically by scanning electron microscopy, (SEM) stereoscopic imaging (SI), and micrometer measurement. Cellular assay was made by MTT, morphological and cytochemistry analysis. The dense and porous scaffolds presented irregular surfaces. SEM allowed to observe details of the irregular surface throughout the dense samples and confirmed the absence o...
