Modern synthetic polymeric biomaterials are widely used to slowly release medicines over days to years after administration to the body. These polymers are configured in numerous biomedical and pharmaceutical forms (spheres, rods, coatings, porous matrices), including micrometer-tomillimeter-scale injectable depots, drug-eluting stents, scaffolds for engineering tissues, and blood-circulating nanometer-scale particles and can be made biodegradable or nondegradable. Until now, drugs… CONTINUE READING
