INTRODUCTION Poly(ϵ-caprolactone) (PCL), a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer, is useful to encapsulate a wide range of drugs making it an interesting material for the preparation of carriers with potential applications in therapeutics. AREAS COVERED The design and development of those carriers to modulate drug release, to improve the drug stability or apparent solubility in aqueous media, as well as to target tissues and organs are discussed. EXPERT OPINION Microencapsulation is a… CONTINUE READING
