Preliminary study on human protein adsorption and leukocyte adhesion to starch-based biomaterials.

In this study, the adsorption of human serum albumin (HSA), fibronectin (FN) and vitronectin (VN) onto the surface of novel biodegradable materials was evaluated by immunostaining. Specifically, polymeric blends of corn starch with cellulose acetate (SCA), ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (SEVA-C), and polycaprolactone (SPCL) were immersed in unitary and… CONTINUE READING
