Numerous studies have demonstrated that peptide modified surfaces influence short- and long-term cell responses such as attachment, shape and function in vitro. These responses are mediated via cell receptors known as integrins which bind specifically to short peptide sequences from larger proteins. Integrins transduce information to the nucleus through(More)
The long held assumption that sustained drug elution from stent coatings over weeks to months is imperative for clinical efficacy has limited the choice for stent coating materials. We developed and evaluated an omega-3 fatty acid (O3FA) based stent coating that is 85% absorbed and elutes 97% of its Sirolimus analog (Corolimus) load within 8d of(More)
Glycoprotein IIb–IIIa (GPIIb–IIIa) antagonists have the capacity to destabilize coronary thrombi and restore vessel patency. Antagonist concentration and residence time, which can be increased by local intracoronary (LIC) administration, and thrombus age may be key factors that influence thrombus stability. Light transmission aggregometry was used to(More)
