This study deals with the fabrication of a peripheral nerve scaffold prepared with poly (lactic acid-co-glycolic acid) [PLGA] and acellularized pigskin collagen micro particles and the investigation of its sustained release property in vitro. We took bovine serum albumin [BSA] as model drug to investigate the sustained-release property of the scaffold in vitro. The results showed the scaffold could release BSA steadily with a rate of 6.6 ng/d (r=0.994) or so. In a 1-month test period, the accumulative release ratio of BSA from the scaffold was up to 43%, and the shape of the scaffold was still originally well kept. In addition, the scaffold outcome non-immunogenicity, good cell adhesion and biodegradability. The results indicated a scaffold constructed by this technique would be a potential implanting support with prolonged sustained release function, such as for the use of nerve scaffold.
