This work presented a sustained release system of simvastatin (SIM) based on the mesoporous hydroxyapatite (MHA) capped with poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAM). The MHA was prepared by using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as a template and the modified PNIPAAM layer on the surface of MHA was fabricated through surface-initiated atom transfer… (More)
