Water absorbing and quick degradable PLLA/PEG multiblock copolymers reduce the encapsulation and inflammatory cytokine production


Biomaterials that contact with soft tissues such as postoperative adhesion prevention membrane or tissue-regenerative scaffolds should possess specific features such as hydrophilicity, mild to no immunogenicity, and quick degradability. The inflammation reaction to multiblock copolymers of poly(l-lactic acid) (PLLA) and poly(ethylene glycol), named as Multi… (More)
