Abstract: The primary goal of bioadhesive controlled drug delivery is to localize a delivery device within the body to enhance the drug absorption process in a site-specific manner. An important contributor to good adhesion is the presence of molecular adhesion promoters such as polymer-tethered structure (e.g., poly(ethylene glycol) chains grafted to crosslinked networks) or even linear chains which are free to diffuse across the gel/gel interface. Recently, we have developed a very promising class of carriers for drug…
