Biomaterials Forum: Computational Modeling of Biomaterial Degradation and Local Drug Release Facilitates Rapid Device Development, Enhanced Performance & Regulatory Evaluation

Tzafriri, AR, Artzi, N. Computational Modeling of Biomaterial Degradation and Local Drug Release Facilitates Rapid Device Development, Enhanced Performance & Regulatory Evaluation.

Summary: Biodegradable materials are popular platforms for biocompatible and tunable local drug release. However, controlling and predicting material degradation dynamics, and the associated drug release kinetics in the complex in vivo environment often proves challenging.
