A new sterilization system using vapour-phase hydrogen peroxide (VPHP) was recently developed. The cytotoxicity of various medical materials sterilized by the VPHP sterilization system was investigated. After VPHP sterilization, polystyrene, polyurethane (PU8), blend material of silicone and polyurethane (Sil/PU6), poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), fluorosilicone acrylate and poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (HEMA) showed strong cytotoxicity, whereas polyethylene and polypropylene did not… CONTINUE READING
