Abstract:

Nitric oxide (NO) generating materials offer the potential to reduce thrombosis, inflammation and infection associated with catheters and stents. Prof. West’s at Rice has developed NO generating hydrogels and polyurethanes that produce NO for prolonged periods of time under physiological conditions. Both materials can coat catheters or stents.
