The aim of this work was to study the behavior of FaDu cells in contact with 2D substrates (pellicles) of BNC and to develop a 3D method to create a model of hypopharyngeal squamous carcinoma by means of BNC/alginate porous sponges. In this perspective, cells were seeded on uncoated scaffolds either as cell suspension or embedded in a 1:1 mixture of medium and Matrigel, and on scaffold pre-coated with collagen I. Nanocellulose was used also in the form of hollow tubes, filled with cell suspension and Matrigel and cultured in a stirrer flask. To create a model better resembling reality, the FaDu cells were also co-cultured with Human Umbilical Vein Endothelial Cells (HUVECs), with the expectation to observe angigogenic effects on these. The sponges seeded with Matrigel showed a higher number of cells grown inside them compared to the other seeding techniques and the gel gave good results also with the cellulose tubes. On the other hand, the co-culture gave results not as great as expected but the experiment can be improved by culturing the two cell type together for a longer time. This study shows that BNC can be used to grow in vitro 3D tumor to be used in screening of cancer therapies
