Table of Contents:
  • Host response to implanted materials and devices - overview
  • Innate and acquired immunity: umoral and cellular components (Protein adsorption, cell recruitment, tissue response)
  • Acute/Chronic inflammation, foreign body reaction - implications
  • Macrophages: from immune response to tissue restoration
  • Host response to cell-grafted biomaterials
