Adsorption of fibrinogen from buffer as a single protein and from plasma to four materials has been studied. The two NIH-NHLBI primary reference standards, filler free polydimethylsiloxane and low density polyethylene, were used along with polyvinylcholoride and cellulose materials supplied by the IUPAC Working Party. The materials were examined in both(More)
The transient detection of fibrinogen on surfaces has been described (Vroman effect) and high-mol-wt kininogen (HK) has been shown to play a role in this reaction. In this study, we attempted to identify the form of HK responsible for preventing detection of the fibrinogen initially adsorbed from plasma to various artificial surfaces and to determine if(More)
The adsorption of various plasma proteins to three solid surfaces has been studied as a function of plasma concentration. Albumin adsorption on glass showed no dependence on plasma concentration and increased to a plateau value on both polyethylene and siliconized glass. Immunoglobulin G (IgG) adsorption showed no dependence on plasma concentration on any(More)
The influence of polyurethane sulfonation on fibrinogen adsorption from plasma and on plasma coagulation has been investigated. Sulfonated polyurethanes were synthesized using a two-step solution polymerization in which a diamino disulfonic acid was used as chain extender, thus incorporating sulfonate groups into the hard segments. Polymer molecular weights(More)
The adsorption of fibrinogen from both human whole blood and plasma to a number of "foreign" surfaces is reported. Adsorption was measured as a function of plasma or blood dilution using radioiodine labeling. We showed previously that adsorption of fibrinogen from plasma exhibits a maximum at a plasma dilution of about 100:1, and have attributed this(More)
Segmented polyurethanes based on 4,4'-diphenylmethane diisocyanate and polypropylene oxide and chain extended with a sulfonated diamine were derivatized by reaction of sulfonate groups in the polymer with amino acids. The chemical composition of the derivatized polymers was determined by elemental analysis. Tensile stress-strain measurements indicated a(More)
This paper reports quantification of a method for measuring amounts of protein adsorbed to a surface; the method is especially useful for revealing macroscopic spatial patterns of adsorption. The experiments tested the effectiveness of iron oxide suspensions adsorbed onto the adsorbed protein to indicate, in separate trials, the amount of either human(More)
