The Relation Between Swelling Properties and Enzymatic Degradation of Azo Polymers Designed for Colon-Specific Drug Delivery


Copolymers of 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and methyl methacrylate (MMA), and terpolymers of HEMA, MMA, and methacrylic acid (MA) were synthesized in the presence of N,N′-bis(methacryloyloxyethyloxycarbonylamino)azobenzene (B(MOEOCA)AB) and evaluated as coating materials for colonic targeting. The release of ibuprofen, a model drug, from capsules… (More)
