These reactions are unlikely for biomaterials applications except for slowly releasing drug delivery and biod gradation systems. Type IV hypersensitivity reactions do not involve the production of antibody, but...

Finally, the structure may include effective junctions that can be either simple, physical entanglements of permanent or semipermanent nature, or ordered chains forming crystallites. Thus, the junctions should never be considered as a volumeless point, the usual depiction...

Testing Biomaterials

Lai.or, Steven M. Niemi, Sharon J. Northup, Buddy D. Ratner, Myron Spector, Brad H. Vale, and John E. Willson How can biomaterials be evaluated to determine if they are biocompatible and whether they function appropriately in the in vivo environment This section discusses testing procedures. A few general comments will clarify key themes and ideas that are common to biological testing of all biomaterials. Some biomaterials fulfill their intended function in seconds....

Lemons, and Buddy D. Ratner The bulk and surface properties of biomaterials that have been utilized for implants have been shown to directly influence, and in some cases, control the tissue interface dynamics from the time of initial in vivo placement until final disposition. Compatibility is recognized to be a two-way process between the biomaterials that have been fabricated into devices and the host environment. It is critical to recognize that synthetic materials...

Factors That Influence The Rate Of Bioerosion

Although the solubilization of intact polymer as well as several distinct mechanisms of chemical degradation have been recognized as possible causes for the observed bioerosion of a solid, polymeric implant, virtually all currently available implant materials (Table 2) erode as a result of the hydrolytic cleavage of the polymer backbone (mechanism III in Fig. 2). We therefore limit the following discussion to solid devices that bioerode as a result of the hydrolytic cleavage of the polymer...

33 Cells Their Surfaces and Interactions with Materials

The mammalian cell is a highly organized structure. It is composed of organelles, including a nucleus containing genetic informaton (DNA, chromatin) mitochondria, the power plants of the cell the Golgi apparatus, the assembly area of glycoproteins and lipoproteins the endoplasmic reticulum (smooth and rough), involved in protein synthesis and cellular transport and lysosomes containing proteolytic enzymes. The remainder of the cell is cytoplasm (cytosol), containing the cytoskeleton involved in...
