Bioresorbable Polymers: Patents Growing by 37% a year

absorption time of bioresorbable materials

Foster Corporation, a leader in bioresorbable polymer formulations for implantable medical devices contributed to the article, "Growing Popularity of Bioresorbable Polymers" in the December issue of Medical Plastics News. Tony Listro, Managing Director of Foster Delivery Science discussed compounding, mechanical properties and degredation times, claiming that, "Compositions with higher hydrophilic and amorphous structures and a lower molecular weight resorb faster, yet often sacrifice mechanical strength. Conversely, higher crystallinity and molecular weight improve mechanical properties and decrease resorption rates”.
