Drug delivery systems are polymer formulations or medical devices that facilitate the introduction of therapeutics into the body and control their release rate, time, and location. Bioresorbable polymers may be utilized in drug delivery systems to form depot locations in otherwise challenging areas to target with oral or intravenous administration. Contact Poly-Med today to discuss your next-generation drug delivery application.
Our matierals allow for modification and tailoring of the delivery of active ingredients in a variety of anatomical locations and physiological environments. Contact us today to select materials or products to support next generation delivery for your product.
We offer a wide range of absorbable polymers for drug delivery that include preformed lactide-co-glycolide articles, such as microspheres, particulates, or other articles that can also be rate modifying agents
Our Viscoprene® depot system is a unique and novel liquid block copolymer that conforms to a semi-solid structure when exposed to aqueous settings. This highly customizable drug delivery platform can provide a drug release profile that is continuous.
With our Viscoprene® system, or as a standalone additive, we offer our drug release modifier, Moduprene®, as a way to tailor drug release kinetics. This low-molecular weight particulate system is specifically designed for extending sustainable delivery from days to weeks.
Bioresorbable Medical Device Overview: Bioresorbable medical devices are implantable materials designed for a particular treatment and degrade over time once the scaffold is no longer necessary. Bioresorbable polymer materials may be synthetic or naturally-derived, exhibit high biocompatibility, and may degrade through mechanisms including but not limited to bulk hydrolysis, surface erosion, or enzymatic degradation depending […]
