A new antithrombogenic material with long polyethyleneoxide chains.
The PVC-g-MnG polymers were synthesized by photo-induced graft copolymerization of methoxypoly (ethyleneoxide)monomethacrylate (MnG) with various chain lengths (n) of polyethyleneoxide (PEO) (n = 4,Expand

Biocompatibility of fluorinated polyimide.
Contact between blood and biomaterial triggers a complex series of events including protein adsorption, leukocyte adhesion and activation, and complement activation. In this article, a series ofExpand

Selective cell death by water-soluble Fe-porphyrins with superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity.
We investigated the effect on cell death of reactive oxygen species induced by [[5,10 (or 5,15)-bis(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)-15,20 (or 10,20) diphenyl]porphinato]iron (cis-FeMPy(2)P(2)P orExpand

Superoxide dismutase as a target enzyme for Fe-porphyrin-induced cell death.
The cell viability of human cancer cell lines treated with [5,10-bis(N-methyl-4-pyridyl)-15,20-diphenyl]porphinatoiron(III) (cis-FeMPy(2)P(2)P) has been estimated. The cis-FeMPy(2)P(2)P is aExpand

Clinical application of antithrombogenic hydrogel with long poly(ethylene oxide) chains.
Thirty clinical tests on PVC drain tubes coated with hydrophilic copolymer with long poly(ethylene oxide) chains (PEO-COAT) were carried out. Controls were non-coated PVC drain tubes. ThrombogenesisExpand

Design of manganese porphyrin modified with mitochondrial signal peptide for a new antioxidant.
A new design of antioxidant, consisting of manganese (Mn) porphyrin and signal peptide for mitochondrial targeting, is reported. The resulting Mn-porphyrin-oligopeptide conjugate exhibitedExpand
