Modifications of poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PHEMA) with cholesterol and laminin have been developed to design scaffolds that promote cell-surface interaction. Cholesterol-modified superporous PHEMA scaffolds have been prepared by the bulk radical copolymerization of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA), cholesterol methacrylate (CHLMA) and the cross-linking agent ethylene dimethacrylate (EDMA) in the presence of ammonium oxalate crystals to introduce interconnected superpores in the… CONTINUE READING
