The combination of tissue engineering and controlled drug delivery
has been shown as an effective strategy for locally controlling the dose and duration of the release of biological molecules .
The objective of this article is to outline the hydrolytic degradation phenomena of biodegradable polymers when incorporated in controlled drug delivery
systems and to review the various factors influencing the polymer degradation.
senior vice president, co-founder of Micell and co-inventor of the technology, said, "Micell is pursuing a product portfolio based on the concept that there is great potential therapeutic benefit in coating biomedical implants with rapidly bioabsorbable formulations while maintaining controlled drug delivery
profiles extending beyond polymer presence.
OTCBB: CWNM) has recently patented a controlled drug delivery
