Biodegradable polymeric microspheres have been used extensively in sustained-release drug delivery formulations. Considerable previous research has focussed on encapsulation of hydrophilic drugs such as proteins and peptides, into a poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) matrix using double-emulsion solvent evaporation methods. However, there is.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
