Implant with Reactive Oxygen Species Scavenging Coating

US20180078681A1 · Mar 21, 2018, 23:00 PM

A chronically implanted medical device is disclosed that has an outermost layer formed from a conjugate of a polymer with lipoic acid, the conjugate having free 1, 2 - dithiolane groups. It is contemplated that this layer scavenges reactive oxygen species, i. e. acts as an antioxidant, and thus reduces inflammation and other adverse effects around the implant itself.
