Genetic Cellular Responses to Tyrosine-Derived Polycarbonate Blends



L A. Bailey, Matthew Becker, James A. Cooper, J Kohn, Eric J. Amis


The evaluation and identification of detrimental interactions between biological species and synthetic surfaces is a daunting challenge as the number of materials and control of physical variables increases. In this talk, the physical properties of tyrosine-derived polycarbonate homo-polymers and blends of thin films and 3-demsional scaffolds will be discussed in detail. In addition, recent RT-PCR results examining the expression profiles of IL-1B and fibronectin unter static and dynamic perfusion bioreactor conditions will be described.
