Adhesion and growth of endothelial cell on amphiphilic PU/PS IPN surface: effect of amphiphilic balance and immobilized collagen.


Since natural blood vessels are lined with an endothelial cell (EC) monolayer, it is proposed that synthetic biomaterial surfaces be covered or seeded with endothelial cells for ideal nonthrombogenicity under normal conditions. The effects of the surface energy of hydrophilic-hydrophobic IPN on EC adhesion and growth were investigated. The human umbilical… (More)
