A study was made of the reaction of cells to administration of polymeric fibers containing amino acids--phenylalanine and leucine--to the culture of nerve tissue. The data obtained have shown that polymeric fibers are some acceptable substrate for the migration of astrocytes and oligodendrocytes and for the growth of nerve cell axons.
