Light-controlled drug delivery from a polymer-based hydrogel coating suitable for medical devices.

What is it about?

This manuscript describes the use of polymer hydrogels containing light-sensitive prodrugs. The application of light triggers the release of the drug offering potential routes to controlling the location and time of drug delivery.

This manuscript describes the use of polymer hydrogels containing light-sensitive prodrugs. The application of light triggers the release of the drug offering potential routes to controlling the location and time of drug delivery. This sort of technology enables the controllable delivery of drugs in response to light.
