    Abstract

    Since the dawn of mankind textile materials have been produced and used to protect people from the surrounding environment. Over the years, textile properties like quality and wearing comfort have improved, and it is true to say that textile materials are an important aspect of our everyday lives. Logically, textile materials have found their way in the medical field as well, e.g., artificial aortas and bandages. However, advanced functional textile drug delivery systems were not developed until the end of the last millennium.
