Powders composed of four morphologically different calcium phosphate particles were prepared by precipitation from aqueous solutions: flaky, brick-like, elongated orthogonal, and spherical. The particles were then loaded with either clindamycin phosphate as the antibiotic of choice or fluorescein, a model molecule used to assess the drug release properties. A comparison was carried out of the effect of such antibiotic-releasing materials on: sustained drug release profiles; Staphylococcus… CONTINUE READING
