Abstract

This research focuses on two classes of biodegradable polymers, poly(esters) and poly(anhydrides) as potential carriers of recombinant proteins for vaccine and drug use. Initial experiments demonstrated the usefulness of these polymers in the controlled release applications [5] and further work has resulted in the successful application of poly(anhydrides) in preliminary clinical trials examining the delivery of an anticancer agent within the brain. The results presented in this manuscript examine various methods to measure the biodegradation products formed during the hydrolysis of poly(esters) and poly(anhydrides).
