The work comprised the response of endothelial cells, measured in the amount of expressed inflammatory markers, cultivated on polymer surfaces. In order to control surface function groups, polymer surfaces were modified by a gas plasma technique. The goal of the investigation was to develop a polymer material that did not induce an inflammatory response on cultured endothelial cells. This would accelerate the development of an artificial vascular graft.
