Paper Title:
The Current Research Status of PLGA as Drug and Gene Carrier
  Abstract

PLGA, poly (lactic-co-glycolic-acid), is a kind of biodegradable functional macromolecular organic compounds. PLGA, certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), possesses desirable features of biocompatibility, nontoxicity and no immune response, and is being widely applied to human clinical medical research. Because of its biodegradability, simple synthetic methods, controllability of degrading rate and desirable plasticity, PLGA was applied in large quantity into the carrier materials which is to control the release in recent years, gradually propelling PLGA microsphere controlled release system to be the most ideal drug-carrier system at present. As the carrier of drug and genes, PLGA is mainly researched on its features as the carrier, synthetic methods, different surface modification methods, and the applications on different drugs, genetic treatments and genetic vaccines.
