It may be hypothesized that wound healing will benefit from polymer membranes coated with extracellular matrix macromolecules. Here we describe the behavior of dermal fibroblasts on polysulfone (PSU) membranes, and PSU membranes covered with chitosan (Ch), chondroitin sulfate (CS), or hyaluronan, using an additional intermediary ionic charge modification with poly-(acrylonitrile-co-methallyl sulfonate) (AN69), which allows binding of the polysaccharidic macromolecules. Cell adhesion… CONTINUE READING
