Like most of the materials used by humans, polymeric materials are proposed in the literature and occasionally exploited clinically, as such, as devices or as part of devices, by surgeons, dentists, and pharmacists to treat traumata and diseases. Applications have in common the fact that polymers function in contact with animal and human cells, tissues, and/or organs. More recently, people have realized that polymers that are used as plastics in packaging, as colloidal suspension in paints, and… Expand
After soft tissues, bone, drug delivery and packaging, PLA aims at blood
Abstract Natural polymeric materials have been used for thousands of years by humans, including in medicine. However, such materials lacked reproducibility and presented risks of immunogenicity inExpand
Pharmapolymers in the 21st century: Synthetic polymers in drug delivery applications
A link is created between the underlying chemical structures, the properties of the polymers, and their area of application, where they are often just known by their trade names or abbreviations and have the potential to make it to the market in future. Expand
Selecting and Designing Polymers Suitable for Nanoparticle Manufacturing
Man has always tried to use the materials around him to construct more and more complex objects for its everyday use, with a particular attention to materials which can be used to treat diseasesExpand
Sustainable Removal of Contaminants by Biopolymers: A Novel Approach for Wastewater Treatment. Current State and Future Perspectives
Naturally occurring substances or polymeric biomolecules synthesized by living organisms during their entire life cycle are commonly defined as biopolymers. Different classifications of biopolymersExpand
After a general introduction into biopolymers in general and the use of polymers and especially biopolymers in pharmaceutical applications, we present a detailed discussion of the most importantExpand
Biodegradable polyesters: from monomer to application
Biodegradable polymers form a group of materials that are able to decompose in small, harmless compounds under the influence of biological actors and/or physico-chemical stimuli. In the biomedicalExpand
Environmental performance of bio-based and biodegradable plastics: the road ahead.
There is a need to assess the performance of polymer innovations in terms of their biodegradability especially under realistic waste management and environmental conditions, to avoid the unwanted release of plastic degradation products in receiving environments. Expand
Recent concepts in biodegradable polymers for tissue engineering paradigms: a critical review
Recently developed biodegradable materials for tissue regeneration of some targeted organs e.g., skin, nerves, blood vessels, heart, cornea, trachea, dental/oral structure and bones are critique. Expand
