We examined the behavior of human cancer cells cultured on the honeycomb films prepared by the self-organization method. The growth of the cells on the honeycomb films was markedly reduced compared to that of the cells on the control flat films. The observation with a time-lapse video microscope revealed that the cells on the honeycomb films moved slower than those on the flat films. The cells attached to the honeycomb films were relatively resistant to detachment by trypsin-treatment compared to those attached to the flat films, suggesting stronger adhesiveness of the cells to honeycomb films than flat films. These suggest that the inhibitory effects on the growth and motility of the cells are in part due to their strong adhesiveness to honeycomb films.
