Disease relevance of POLYURETHANE


Psychiatry related information on POLYURETHANE

  • The effect of psychological stress on platelet adhesion to five polymeric materials (polyurethane, polyurethane filled with BaSO4, polyethyleneterephthalate, silicone and low-density polyethylene) was studied [5].
  • Male polyurethane condoms do not enhance brief HIV-STD risk reduction interventions for heterosexually active men: results from a randomized test of concept [6].
  • While the former is used for the production of polyurethane foams, the latter is a psychometric drug, which is becoming increasingly popular in the techno scene [7].
  • Forty-six subjects aged 17 to 79 years who had not fallen in the previous year were exposed to an illusory visual stimulus while they stood on a force platform, with or without the introduction of a polyurethane foam pad under their feet to reduce proprioception [8].
  • Bond strengths were significantly greater for polyurethane treated with primer 1205 rather than S-2260 regardless of the polymerization method or primer reaction time [9].

Associations of POLYURETHANE with other chemical compounds

  • PURPOSE: To investigate the technical feasibility and clinical effectiveness of a polyurethane-covered expandable nitinol stent in the treatment of malignant gastroduodenal obstructions [29].
  • PE was more commonly present in patients with polyvinyle chloride or polyethylene catheters (10/38, 26%) as compared to patients with either polyurethane or siliconized catheters (3/41, 7%; p < 0.05, Chi-Square test; Odds Ratio = 4.52, 95% CI 1.01-23.07) [30].
  • Chronic arterial-thromboembolism was initiated by segments of polyurethane (Biomer) cannula introduced into chronic arteriovenous shunts [31].
  • A hybrid sol-gel/polyurethane glucose biosensor that releases nitric oxide is developed and characterized [32].
  • The polyurethane- and silicone-rubber-based membranes exhibit less overall nonspecific protein adsorption than the PVC or hydroxylated PVC matrices [33].
  • Results indicated that incorporation of 25mg/g dexamethasone acetate (DexA) into the siloxane-based polyurethane resulted in no significant difference in the biostability and biocompatibility of the material [34].

Gene context of POLYURETHANE

  • The inhibitors were administered into a polyether polyurethane scaffold implant in mice at the selected doses, and the total neovascularization after the administration of HGF/SF was quantified using a (133)Xenon clearance technique, vessel counts, and immunohistochemistry [35].
  • Monocytes/macrophages on polyurethane and teflon, and those on silicone only in long culture-time produced high GM-CSF amounts, where as those on TCPS exhibited low levels of GM-CSF [36].
  • The results show that pre-adsorption of a hydrophobic cellulose ether with a flocculation temperature < 37 degrees C, on polyurethane and polytetrafluoroethylene, decreased the adsorption of fibrinogen, fibronectin and vitronectin [37].
  • Lysine-derivatized polyurethane as a clot lysing surface: conversion of adsorbed plasminogen to plasmin and clot lysis in vitro [38].
  • Tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) production by a high density culture of weakly adherent human embryonic kidney cells using a polyurethane-foam packed-bed culture system [39].
