Regenerated silk fibers extruded from fibroin solutions are highly lustrous and have uniform diameters and circular cross-sections.

These fibers can be spun under clean, sterile, and carefully regulated conditions, and may permit direct incorporation of drugs for controlled release, being suitable for biomedical applications.
