Abstract: The objective of this work was to characterize a polymeric paste formulation of the anticancer drug paclitaxel that was injectable through a narrow gauge needle at room temperature and set to a solid implant in vivo for the intratumoral treatment of localized cancer. Pastes were manufactured from a triblock copolymer composed of poly(D,L-lactide-co-caprolactone)-block-polyethylene glycol-block-poly(D,L-lactide-co-caprolactone) (PLC-PEG-PLC) or triblock blended with a low molecular weight polymer methoxypolyeth…
