Biodegradable polymer and its biomedical application
Author(s): Dr. Mohd. Amirul Islam
Abstract: In the last half-century, biodegradable polymers have been widely used in biomedical applications such as drug carrier, medical devices, tissue engineering and antibacterial biomaterials. Polymers that are biodegradable provide the significant advantage of being able to be broken down and removed after they have served their special function. Our interest is to synthesize novel biodegradable polymers to be used as carriers for sustained and controlled release of medicaments. In this respect, our efforts have been made to synthesize and characterize several biodegradable polymers using different catalyst, of them, malic acid-butane 1,4-diol copolyester exhibited drug release behavior corresponding to BP standard enteric coating profile. Sub-acute toxicity of this polymer was also investigated and was found to be non-toxic. The polymer is expected to be usable as enteric coating material.
