Research summary

Many medical devices fail as a result of rejection by the body. The spans from the gradual loosening of dental and hip implants eventually requiring revision to infection of devices such as catheter requiring immediate removal. We have identified materials which reduce bacterial colonisation which are being approved for use in the clinic (CE marked by Camstent Ltd). Our next target for development from the lab to devices are materials which reduce the less sever modes of failure which are linked to immune system rejection.
