Abstract A biodegradable polymer scaffold was developed using collagen and chitosan, in the form of interpenetrating polymeric network (IPN), for in vitro culture of human epidermoid carcinoma cells (HEp-2, Cincinnati). Glutaraldehyde was used as cross-linking agent for the development of scaffold. Various types of scaffolds were prepared using different proportionate mixtures of collagen and chitosan solutions in the ratio of 3:7, 4:6, 5:5, 6:4 and 7:3 (collagen:chitosan). These scaffolds were ...

Abstract The development of pH sensitive, biocompatible and biodegradable hydrogels as novel drug delivery systems was carried out to achieve localized drug delivery. Poly[ N -vinyl pyrrolidone-acrylic acid]-polyethylene glycol (Poly[NVP-AA]-PEG) interpolymer type systems were prepared by free radical polymerization. Azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) was used for initiating the polymerization and N , N ″-methylene bisacrylamide was employed as a crosslinking agent. The concentration of initiator and...

Azo polymeric hydrogels were developed for colon specific targeting. Methacryloyloxy azobenzene was synthesized and hydrogels were prepared by copolymerizing with hydroxyethyl methacrylate. These hydrogels were characterized by various spectral techniques such as Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis and scanning electron microscopy. Equilibrium swelling measurements of the hydrogels were carried out in distilled water and also in simulated gastric and intestinal fl...
