Switchable release nano-reservoirs for co-delivery of drugs via a facile micelle-hydrogel composite
An amphiphilic polypeptide-based micelle hydrogel composite is reported for the simultaneous switchable co-delivery of two drugs. This composite allowed for controlled multiphasic drug release and could be effectively tuned to moderate the pace and amount of drug release and be easily regulated to switch the drug release kinetics over a range of simple factors such as change in pH, cross-linking density, and composition.
