On-demand, localized therapeutic delivery with engineered drug depot
Researchers at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, led by Bin Duan, PhD, have invented a novel hydrogel scaffold for sustained, localized therapeutic release. This implantable drug-delivery system is refillable, thereby drastically reducing the frequency of drug administration.
Potential applications include therapeutic delivery at the site of an orthopedic surgical implant—such as a prosthetic knee—to promote healing and to prevent rejection and infection.
