Background/aim: Bone tumor is one of the major causes of tissue bone loss, particularly after performing surgical excision operation to bone lesion that needs to be replaced by biomaterials and ensure a complete filling of tissue-loss spaces. The purpose of our study was to produce a nanofiber-based bone graft scaffold to fill the gaps resulted from bone cancer treatment and also capable of carrying functional molecules that can play a major role in preventing further cancer growth at the targeted bone tissue.
