In this study, possibility of the method of immobilization of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) on polylactone-type polymer scaffolds via plasma treatment was investigated. To introduce acid carboxylic functional groups on the surface of the polymer matrix, poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) film was treated with carbon dioxide (CO2) plasma and then incubated in a phosphate buffer saline (PBS, pH 7.4) solution of bFGF. The bFGF binding efficiency to the CO2 plasma-treated PLGA (PT-PLGA… CONTINUE READING
