Biodegradable microspheres for controlled drug/cell delivery and tissue engineering

Abstract:

The synthetic biodegradable polymer poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) has been widely explored as substrate biomaterials for controlled drug delivery and tissue engineering. ECM component heparin and bone mineral hydroxyapatite (HA) are attractive biomaterials which can functionalize the PLGA surface to improve cell cell response and to bring in the dual growth factor delivery, because heparin and HA both can improve cell responses and bind with various proteins.

To combine the oste...
