Protein and surface effects on monocyte and macrophage adhesion, maturation, and survival.


Cell adhesion and maturation can be affected by the protein adsorption profile on the surface of an implanted biomaterial. In this study we have investigated how surface chemistry and adsorbed proteins can modulate monocyte and macrophage adhesion, IL-13-induced foreign-body giant cell formation, and apoptosis in vitro. Compared to a dimethylsilane-modified… (More)
