Thursday, August 22nd, 2013 | Permalink

Institut für Kunststoffverarbeitung (IKV; Hall 14 C 16) and RWTH Aachen IKV have developed a carrier system for treatment of overactive bladder, which they will discuss at K 2013. The microsphere drug-delivery system (DDS) they devised consists of a drug-loaded polymer matrix that is embedded in a foamed absorbable carrier system. The DDS is directly placed into the urinary bladder, and the drug release is controlled by the degradation of the carrier system.
