biocompatibilities, bacterials adhesion, cell adhesion, hydrophobicity

Materials for artificial devices require biocompatibility with the human body. Moreover, it has been well known that the implants are facilely tainted with pathogenic bacteria during surgical processes and that a few bacteria circulate in bloodstream, adhere and start to colonize on the surface of prostheses. Several factors that cause these problems include chemical and physical properties of artificial materials and characteristics of bacteria.
