Controlled-release polymer systems for drug delivery to the brain

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

4 Scopus citations


The author has developed a sustained-release polymer system that is implanted directly at the site of the brain tumor and thus bypasses the blood-brain barrier and achieves very high local concentrations of drug with minimal systemic toxicity. The polymer, BIODEL, is a polyanhydride, poly(bis(p-carboxy-phenoxy propane anhydride) sebacic acid), (PCPP-SA). The polyanhydrides have a number of features that make them particularly suitable for this study.
