It has been proposed that adsorbed glycoproteins such as fibrinogen and gamma-globulin induce platelet adhesion at blood-polymer interfaces. The importance of oligosaccharide groups in the glycoproteins proved to be responsible for platelet adhesion and aggregation via possible complex formation. Several studies have provided evidence that the proposed… (More)
