Reinforced polylactic acid for use in high strength biodegradable medical implants.
Traditional medical implants, such as orthopedic screws, pins, and coronary stents, are almost exclusively metallic due to high mechanical strength requirements. However, issues related to the use of permanent metallic ...
Development of novel monolithic matrices for drug delivery using conventional and non-conventional polymer processing technologies.
The aim of this study was to produce a range of polymer based monolithic matrices for controlled oral drug delivery using conventional polymer processing equipment. Poly (ethylene oxide) (PEO) was chosen as the primary ...
Review of multifarious applications of Poly (lactic acid)
(Taylor & Francis, 2016)
Poly (lactic acid) is considered to be a promising alternative to petroleum-based polymers due to its renewability, biodegradability, biocompatibility, and good mechanical properties. Because of the high cost, the applications ...
Synthesis and characterisation of novel n-vinyl pyrrolidinone/acrylic acid copolymers for use in biomedical applications.
The aim of this study was to develop a novel hydrophilic polymer for use in biomedical applications. The polymers synthesised in this work were based on the monomers N-vinyl pyrrolidinone (NVP) and acrylic acid (AA) and ...
Development of Amoxicillin loaded microspheres for anti-Helicobacter pylori infection using Ionic Gelation method
The aim of this project was to develop microspheres loaded with Amoxicillin for anti-Helicobacter pylori infection. Amoxicillin loaded microspheres were developed using blends of natural polymers such as Alginate and ...
