Investigation of the effect of surface released nitric oxide on fibrinogen adsorption, An
Author(s):Lantvit, Sarah Marie
The search for improved biomaterials is a continually ongoing effort to prevent the failure of medical devices due to blood clotting. Each group of researchers has their own set of methods to create the ideal material for ...
Nitric oxide generation from S-nitrosothiols via interactivity with polymer-supported metal-organic frameworks
Author(s):Neufeld, Megan J.
Catheters, extracorporeal systems, stents, and artificial heart valves are all common blood-contacting medical devices. Due to the differences in the chemical and physical properties of the polymeric materials used to ...
Polymeric films, emulsions, and nanofibers for medical applications
Author(s):Yapor, Janet Pamela
Natural polymers such as cellulose and proteinaceous materials including hair or animal tissue have been used since prehistory. Their use was appropriate until they no longer met the criteria for the intended applications. ...
Development of a nitric oxide measurement method in tissue media
Author(s):Bishop, Cherelle M.
Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in many biological pathways such as vasodilatation and cellular migration. The biological roles of NO have been most heavily investigated using cell and tissue culture models. The limitations ...
Metal organic frameworks as heterogenous nitric oxide catalysts for use in the development of therapeutic polymer materials
Author(s):Harding, Jacqueline L.
Implantable polymeric medical devices are subject to surface biofouling due to the deposition of microbial agents and the accumulation of proteins at the material interface. Consequently, medical devices which are intended ...
Combining fundamental studies with advanced characterization for analyzing nitric oxide polymer systems
Author(s):Joslin, Jessica Marie
Nitric oxide (NO) releasing materials have been investigated over the past couple of decades as potential biomaterials. A multitude of NO releasing platforms have been reported with different NO release properties indicating ...
