Effect of the macromolecular architecture of biodegradable polyurethanes on the controlled delivery of ocular drugs.

Abstract

Controlled delivery of drugs is a major issue in the treatment of ocular diseases, such as in the treatment of uveitis. In this study, dexamethasone acetate, an important type of corticoid used in the treatment of some uveitis, was incorporated into biodegradable polyurethanes (PU) having different macromolecular architectures. The biodegradable… (More)
