As a first evaluation, various aluminium hydroxide adjuvants and poly(D,L-lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microparticulates with modified positively and negatively charged surfaces were prepared to adsorb granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) under different pH conditions. Negatively charged surfaces were chosen to…
