Abstract

Regulated secretion of biological molecules is controlled by specialized secretory cells. The design of a multi-component drug delivery system which can closely mimic the properties of the secretary granule will have utility for triggered release of drugs. This study demonstrates the potential of a synthetic, smart polymer system which mimics the smart polymer matrix of secretory cells in phase transition behavior.
