Biocompatibility of medical grade polyurethane coated with polyaniline (PANi) and polyaniline-silver nanoparticle composite (PANi-AgNp) is reported here. These modified films showed 23 and 18% of 3T3 L1 cell death when compared to 41% with virgin polyurethane (PU) after 48h of incubation, respectively. All the surfaces elucidated inflammatory response in the form of enhanced expressions of the proinflammatory cytokines genes, TNF-α and IL-6. But these values were less (by 20%) on modified films… CONTINUE READING
