Surface-Adhered Composite Poly(Vinyl Alcohol) Physical Hydrogels

MPCL has contributed to research on Surface-Adhered Composite Poly(Vinyl Alcohol) Physical Hydrogels focusing on the Polymersome-Aided Delivery of Therapeutic Small Molecules. The results have been published in Advanced Healthcare Materials.

Abstract

The polymersome-aided trapping of a small antitumor compound in a poly(vinyl alcohol) hydrogel matrix and the subsequent viability of myoblasts adhering to this coating is reported. The results reveal an enhanced reduction of the cell viability when the therapeutic compound is delivered from the surface in comparison to solution-based delivery.
