In vivo behavior of poly(1,3-trimethylene carbonate) and copolymers of 1,3-trimethylene carbonate with D,L-lactide or epsilon-caprolactone: Degradation and tissue response.

Abstract

The degradation and the tissue response evoked by poly(1,3-trimethylene carbonate) [poly(TMC)] and copolymers of TMC with either 52 mol % D,L-lactide (DLLA) or 89 mol % epsilon-caprolactone (CL) were evaluated in vivo by subcutaneous implantation of polymer films in rats for periods up to one year. Poly(TMC) specimens were extensively degraded after 3 weeks… (More)
