Polymers that display a physicochemical response to stimuli are widely explored as potential drug-delivery systems. Stimuli studied to date include chemical substances and changes in temperature, pH and electric field. Homopolymers or copolymers of N-isopropylacrylamide and poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) (known as(More)
New controlled drug-delivery systems are being explored to overcome the disadvantages of conventional dosage forms. For example, stimulated drug-delivery has been used to overcome the tolerance problems that occur with a constant delivery rate, to mimic the physiological pattern of hormonal concentration and to supply drugs on demand. Stimuli-sensitive(More)
within the PIPAAm-modified capillary at 30 °C and burst release during PIPAAm collapse. This burst is analogous to drug release from collapsing PIPAAm gel disks undergoing analogous thermal treatment. [17] Similarly, just after each temperature return to 30 °C, small fluorescent spikes are observed. In contrast, oscillatory fluorescent changes have been(More)
