Abstract: The objective of this project is to evaluate the potential of a new material, milkweed fiber, for filling bone defects in patients with bone lesions. This cellulosic fiber is extracted from the pods of Asclepias syrica L., an herbaceous plant of North America. Its three-dimensional micro-fibrillar structure is an advantage for its use as a cellular scaffold because it would accommodate cells while carrying the necessary nutrients. At first, a physicochemical characterization of this fiber was carried out. Then, a modification of the material was carried out by plasma in order to promote its wettability but also its biodegradation. The final step is to evaluate the potential of this functionalized fiber to improve the adhesion and differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into bone cells.
