The impact of grafted modification of silicone surfaces with quantum-sized materials on protein adsorption and bacterial adhesion.


The majority of the infections associated with the biomedical devices including cardiovascular implants and catheters are instigated by the adhesion of bacteria including staphylococcus aureus, which is subsequently followed by biofilm formation. Keeping in mind the detrimental effect of bacterial adhesion, the objective of the study is to probe the impact… (More)
