Tool to predict bad implant reactions shows potential

Researchers in Texas used mathematical modeling to concoct a computer simulation they believe can predict adverse reactions to medical device implants such as stents, catheters and artificial joints. The group at the University of Texas at Arlington said their tool could someday help ensure the biocompatibility of medical devices in individual patients. Just as important, however, it could improve the treatment response for patients who experience adverse reactions to their implants. Release
