Abstract

The role of surface chemistry and porosity on the adsorption of inflammatory mediators was analyzed. It was found that the removal of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and proinflammatory cytokines from the circulation was capable of providing a therapy to counteract sepsis. It was observed that all MAST carbons exhibited poor adsorption capability for LPS. The results show that porosity is helpful in the adsorption of LPS.
