Biodegradable electroactive polymers for drug delivery

What is it about?

Biodegradable electroactive polymers for drug delivery in response to electricity. We used the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone as a clinically relevant model drug.

Why is it important?

This is the first example of the use of biodegradable electroactive polymers for drug delivery in response to electricity.
