04280954 is referenced by 199 patents and cites 4 patents.

Composite materials are disclosed which are formed by contacting collagen with a mucopolysaccharide and subsequently covalently crosslinking the resultant polymer. These composite materials have a balance of mechanical, chemical and physiological properties which make them useful in surgical sutures and prostheses of controlled biodegradability (resorption) and controlled ability to prevent development of a foreign body reaction, and many are also useful in applications in which blood compatibility is required.
