Body Handles Nanofiber Better

Abstract:
Living tissue often reacts to foreign objects by encapsulating them in scar tissue. This is a problem with orthopedic implants like artificial hips and neural implants like electrical probes. Researchers from Purdue University have made a discovery that may help: carbon nanofibers are surprisingly compatible with human tissue.
