Researchers at MIT and Boston Children's Hospital have published a report today in the journal Nature Materials that provides a better understanding of the body's immune responses to the materials used in implanted medical devices.
Medical devices implanted in the body for drug delivery, sensing, or tissue regeneration usually come under fire from the host's immune system.
