    • Abstract


      Hydrolysed poly(methyl methacrylate) microspheres with carboxyl residues distributed throughout the matrix were tested for their ability to support cell adhesion and growth. Cell growth as determined by protein content, phase contrast and scanning electron microscopy showed that these microspheres are growth-supportive. Further, preliminary experiments pointed to their usefulness in microcarrier culture.
