Silk Biomaterials for Controlled Drug Delivery.

Pritchard, Eleanor.

Abstract: Despite the multitude of applications, no system currently exists for controllable, sustained, long-term drug delivery via fully degradable implants. To address this need, polymeric systems have been studied and while there are a number of biomaterials available for drug delivery devices, purified silk fibroin protein is a unique material particularly well suited to controlled release ap... read more
