Alginate-Based Multi-Membrane Hydrogel for Dual Drug Delivery System
Multi-membrane hydrogels are newly promising carriers in biomedical fields for their gentle gel condition and excellent biocompatibilities. In this study we focused on the dual control release property of alginate-based onion-like multi-membrane hydrogels hybrid with polylactic acid microspheres. The results indicated that the PLA microspheres evenly distributed in each of the hydrogel membranes. And the drug delivery in physiological saline is well controlled which can be promising in transport drugs, genes, protein, etc.
