Degradable Unimolecular Nanoparticles

Executive Summary Biodegradable polymers are useful as drug delivery agents. MSU researchers have developed a poly(glycolide) based polymer that forms unimolecular micelles with diameters less than 50 nm. These nanoparticles contain functional groups which provide anchoring sites for drugs, contrast agents or other biological agents. Description...

Functionalized Poly(glycolide) Polymers for Biomedical Applications

Executive Summary Polylactic acid (PLA) and polyglycolides are attractive alternatives to petroleum-derived plastics for biomedical applications. They are biodegradable, thermoplastic, and derived from renewable resources. However, there are functional characteristics associated with these polymers that limit their use for some biomedical applications....
