Paper Title:
Preparation of the Nano-Hydroxyapatite/Chitosan/Konjac Glucomannan Composite as a Novel Degradable Drug Delivery System
  Abstract

Nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HA)/chitosan (CS)/konjac glucomannan (KGM) composite was prepared by integrating composition and molding. Then, X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were used to analyze the physical, chemical and degradable properties of the composite before and after in simulated body fluid (SBF). Moreover, study in vitro test for drug delivery revealed that the amount of released pentoxifylline (1-[5-oxohexyl]-3,7-dimethylxanthine)(PTX) reached a plateau and equaled 80% of the drug loaded in an implant. The newly develop n-HA/CS/KGM composite may serve as a good degradable biomaterial for implantable drug delivery system (IDDS) in bone tissue engineering.
