Multiblock biodegradable hydrogels for drug delivery and tissue treatment

Multiblock biodegradable hydrogels for drug delivery and tissue treatment

Official Gazette of the United States Patent & Trademark Office Patents 1244(2), Mar 13

Gel-forming macromers including at least four polymeric blocks, at least two of which are hydrophobic and at least one of which is hydrophilic, and including a crosslinkable group are provided. The macromers can be covalently crosslinked to form a gel on a tissue surface in vivo. The gels formed from the macromers have a combination of properties including thermosensitivity and lipophilicity, and are useful in a variety of medical applications including drug delivery and tissue coating.
