Lyman et 'al.' showed that adsorption of protein (mostly albiimin) on a hydrophobic uncharged polymeric surface notably reduced platelet adhesion. The resulting coated surfaces were only slightly thrombogenic. Such adsorbed coatings are not easily obtainable. Their production cannot be standardized, and their stability is qiiestionable. Moreover, it is diffiriilt to appreciate to what extent the adsorbed proteins are denatured by this procedure.A crosslinking method was used in our experiments in order to av…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
