New Materials and Processes Developed for Cranioplasty
TLDR
A biocompatible medical device that include two supported meshes for providing mechanical strength and osseointegration properties of the implant, and a multiplayer porous material in between them that is loaded with the required bioactive antibacterial compound to promote a controlled and sustained release of the pharmaceutical agents at the site of surgical intervention is described.
Paclitaxel-eluting silicone airway stent for preventing granulation tissue growth and lung cancer relapse in central airway pathologies
ABSTRACT Background Airway stents are used to treat obstructive central airway pathologies including palliation of lung cancer, but face challenges with granulation tissue growth. Paclitaxel is a
Computational Modelling of Three-phase Stent-based Delivery
TLDR
Treatment of arterial lesions using drug-eluting stent is now a gold standard method, however, the mechanisms of drug uptake and its retention is not well understood, so effects of non-specific binding be considered.
Examining the efficacy of localised gemcitabine therapy for the treatment of pancreatic cancer using a hybrid agent-based model
TLDR
A hybrid computational model is developed that can be used to investigate other drug delivery devices to improve the arsenal of treatments available for PDAC and other difficult-to-treat cancers in the future and found that an exponential gemcitabine release rate would improve the tumour response to fibres placed peritumourally.
Computational model of stent-based delivery from a half-embedded two-layered coating
TLDR
This model highlights the benefits of consideration of two-layered coating and does predict underlying mechanism for better efficacy by tweaking the kinetics parameters.

Combined drug release from biodegradable bilayer coating for endovascular stents.
TLDR
Results showed that the bilayer system allowed increasing the total amount of eluted Tacrolimus and Paclitaxel drugs with respect to the monolayer systems in the considered testing period and conditions, associated to a faster degradation of the tested copolymers in the bilayered configuration.
Two- and three-layer tablet drug delivery systems for oral sustained release of soluble and poorly soluble drugs
TLDR
The findings indicate that both structures may be used successfully for sustained release drug delivery, in addition the use of multilayer tablets, consisting of materials with suitable properties, may result in modulation of drug release.
Modeling the transport of drugs eluted from stents: physical phenomena driving drug distribution in the arterial wall
TLDR
A computational model of the transport of the two drugs paclitaxel and sirolimus eluted from DES in the arterial wall takes into account the multilayered structure of the arteries and incorporates a reversible binding model to describe drug interactions with the constituents of the arterIAL wall.

CONTEMPORARY APPROACHES FOR BILAYER TECHNOLOGY OF DRUGS THROUGH ORAL ROUTE : AN OVERVIEW
TLDR
This review indicates the different aspects of drug release mechanism, different strategies ofdrug release, various techniques for bilayer tablet, and the influence of different process and formulation parameters must be considered during the development of bilayer tablets to provide a way of successful drug delivery system.
