  title={Functional nanofibers for drug delivery applications},
  author={Qufu Wei and Anfang Wei},
Abstract: In this chapter the physical and chemical mechanisms of drug delivery for nanofibers are introduced; the varying characteristics of these mechanisms and their subsequent strengths and weaknesses for drug delivery are studied. Poly (L-lactide) (PLLA)/Clarithromycin electrospun composite nanofibers are used as an example in discussing the feasibility of electrospun nanofiber application in drug delivery systems. The final conclusion shows that electrospun nanofibers could be very… CONTINUE READING
