The controlled release of insulin from a series of biodegradable hybrid hydrogel network containing dextran derivative of allyl isocyanate (dex-AI) and poly (D,L) lactide diacrylate macromer (PDLLAM) over a wide range of composition ratio was investigated. Laser confocal scanning microscope was used to understand the insulin dispersion and release mechanism(More)
Biodegradable polymer hydrogel networks based on hydrophilic dextran derivative of allyl isocyanate (dex-AI) and hydrophobic poly (D,L) lactide diacrylate macromer (PDLLAM) were synthesized, and their swelling and morphological properties were studied. During a 2-day incubation, the higher the PDLLAM composition in the hydrogel, the slower the swelling as(More)
The thermal and mechanical properties of a new family of biodegradable hydrogels made of photocrosslinked dextran derivative of allyl isocyanate (dex-AI) and poly (D,L) lactide diacrylate macromer (PDLLAM) were studied. The changes of thermal and mechanical properties of the dex-AI/PDLLAM hydrogels as functions of dex-AI to PDLLAM composition ratio and(More)
