Fibers of chitosan and polyethylene glycol (PEG), with salicylic acid as model drug incorporated in different concentrations, were obtained by spinning their solution through a viscose-type spinneret into a coagulating bath containing aqueous tripolyphosphate and ethanol. Chemical, morphological, and mechanical properties characterization were carried out, as well as the studies of the factors that influence the drug releasing from chitosan/PEG fibers. These factors included the component ratio… CONTINUE READING
