Title
In vivo and in vitro responses to poly(ethylene terephthalate-co-diethylene glycol terephthalate) and polyethylene oxide blends
Abstract

Although biocompatible polymeric compounds are generally nontoxic, nonimmunogenic, and chemically inert, implants made from these materials may trigger acute and chronic inflammatory responses. These inflammatory reactions may induce degeneration of implanted biopolymer. Interactions between implanted biomaterial and inflammatory cells are mediated by many cellular events involving cellular adhesion and activation. We studied the inflammatory responses in vivo and in vitro to samples of biopolymers composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate-co-diethylene glycol terephthalate) plus 0, 5, 25% of polyethylene oxide. We observed that these biopolymers did not induce inflammatory responses when implanted in the peritoneal cavity of mice for 28 days. However we observed deposition of hyaluronic acid at the surface of implanted biomaterial, suggesting that tolerance to biomaterial occurred after surgical implantation. No significant adhesion of inflammatory cells such as mononuclear phagocytes and peripheral leukocytes were observed in vitro, when poly(ethylene terephthalate-co-diethylene glycol terephthalate) blends were used as substratum to cellular adhesion. These results suggest that blends composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate-co-diethylene glycol terephthalate) induce low inflammatory cell adhesion, since no rejection of biopolymer was observed when implanted in experimental animal models.
