Controlled and gradual drug delivery is important in order to improve therapeutic efficiency and to reduce potential toxic effects due to overdose of the particular drug. Electrospun nanofibres have gained much attention for controlled drug delivery as the electrospinning process produces scaffolds with very high surface to volume ratio, while being a very simple and cost-effective process. A wide variety of drugs can be effectively incorporated into the fibers, and the structure and function of the fibers and the drug has been found to be maintained (1, 2).
