Title:
Covalent Mucin Coatings Form Stable Anti‐Biofouling Layers on a Broad Range of Medical Polymer Materials 
Abstract:
Approximately 10% of all hospital patients contract infections from temporary clinical implants such as urinal and vascular catheters or tracheal tubes. The ensuing complications reach from patient inconvenience and tissue inflammation to severe, life threatening complications such as pneumonia or bacteremia. All these device‐associated nosocomial infections have the same origin: biofouling, i.e., the unwanted deposition of proteins, bacteria, and cells onto the device. To date, most strategies...    »
