Proprietary TPE could allow drug-eluting breast implants for cancer patients

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013 | Permalink

A proprietary polyisobutylene rubber, which has been used in drug-eluting stents, is seeking to replace silicone in breast implants, enabling reconstructive prostheses that fight and treat cancer, reduce the risk of inflammation, and transmit painkillers. Judit Puskas, a chemical and biomolecular engineering professor of polymer science at the University of Akron’s Pepartment of Polymer Science, and her team have developed a proprietary polyisobutylene rubber that is said to superior barrier and mechanical properties compared to silicone rubber.
