Abstract

Carbon nanotubes and nanofibers are intriguing materials for medical applications due to their unique mechanical, electrical, and surface properties which have been shown to enhance in vitro neural cell functions compared to other central nervous system implant materials such as silicon. The objective of this in vivo study was to determine if stem cells can be combined with carbon nanofibers in the treatment of stroke damaged neural tissue in rats. Both hydrophobic and hydrophilic carbon nanofibers were mixed with stem cells and implanted into stroke damaged brains of rats for up to 3 weeks. Results
