Hydrogels are very attractive delivery systems for hydrophilic macromolecules such as proteins and DNA because they provide a protective environment and allow control of diffusion by adjusting cross-link densities. Physically cross-linked hydrogels generated by rapid swelling upon exposure to an aqueous environment can be obtained from ABA triblock copolymers containing hydrophobic polyester A-blocks and hydrophilic polyether B-blocks. They provide an attractive alternative to chemically cross… CONTINUE READING
