Abstract

The effect of the modulus of macroporous poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate, p(HEMA), hydrogels on the adhesion of pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells to the substrates, was analyzed. P(HEMA) films used for the characterization of cellular response were synthesized with varying concentrations of water and HEMA. The samples were polymerized in a custom-made glass mold for twenty-four hour and stored in deionized water until used. The results show an increase (p < 0.001) in the number of cells present on all of the films as the water concentration increases from 60% and 90%.
