Taking a radically new approach to eradicate topical infections, LIMR researchers have developed a set of topical over-the-counter (OTC) formulations of safe and effective agents. Their new approach is based on the concept of treating the infection ecology, which includes not only the microbial agent but also (1) the local supportive microbiome for the microbe, […]
Drug Delivery & Wound Healing
HealSuture is conceptualized in two forms for different surgical uses. The first is a dissolvable polylactic acid (PLA)-based suture infused with the active compound. The second is a compound-coated silk suture with similar properties. In essence, these sutures locally re-activate a latent fetal program of stem cell-based regenerative healing that avoids fibrotic deposition (scar tissue).

Hybrid molecular brushes (HMBs) are polymeric constructs comprising a backbone and ide chains of two or more polymers with varying properties. The overall molecular structure of HMBs is governed by steric repulsion among the side chains, and their grafting density on the backbone. HMBs with hydrophilic and hydrophobic fragments have recently come to the forefront, […]
When it comes to administration of recombinant human growth hormone (r-hGh), short half-life, instability in gastrointestinal tract, and low circulation time requiring frequent parenteral administration can lead to patient noncompliance. Researchers are investigating several polymer nanoparticle and micro particle based long acting delivery systems. However, comprehension of structural stability and polymer grade is fundamental for […]
