Novel biodegradable blend matrices for controlled drug release.

Phosphorylcholine-functionalized poly-epsilon-caprolactone (PC-PCL) is a new biodegradable polymer with good biocompatibility. In this study modulation of the controlled release of Ibuprofen (IB), a model drug, from poly-epsilon-caprolactone (PCL) by direct blending with PC-PCL is investigated. The influence of several factors such as the content of PC-PCL… (More)
