Synthetic Implants with Controlled Immune Response

­ Executive Summary Polymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) are commonly used as bioabsorbable materials for implants. Unfortunately, degradation products from these often promote adverse host immune responses in patients, which may require a secondary medical intervention such as surgery to remove the implant. To attempt to counter this, some...
