These initial cell adhesion data probably resulted from the possibility of the BAECs to move within the textile's 3D structure, therefore preventing cells from being washed away and increasing the actual number of measured cells.
Therefore, despite a better proliferation rate, it can be concluded that the PET textile structures studied here failed to provide an appropriate proliferation environment for BAECs, when compared to the PET films.
Each textile structure investigated in this study (knitted, woven, with or without velour) produced almost identical BAEC adhesion data which were shown to be higher than those of endothelial cells on the flat PET film.
