Drug Delivery & Wound Healing


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 […]

Human growth hormone (hGH), also known as somatotropin or somatropin, is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth and differentiation of target tissues. Exogenously administered hGH can be an effective treatment for growth disorders in both children and adults. It also is useful in treating catabolic disorders such as muscle wasting associated with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome […]
