Abstract Catheter-associated infections still represent a challenging thread because of the likelihood of biofilm formation. The aim of this work was the surface modification of catheters to immobilize lysozyme and acylase under mild conditions while preserving antimicrobial and anti-quorum sensing performances. Glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) was grafted onto poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) catheters by a pre-irradiation method. The effects of monomer concentration, pre-irradiation dose, reaction time, ...
