Abstract :

Hydrogels are polymeric materials with three dimensional, cross-linked, hydrophilic structure and their water content which is much more advantageous in terms of their use in tissue engineering, biomedical and biotechnological fields compared to other synthetic biocompatible materials due to their porous and soft structure. Intelligent polymers are polymeric materials which show mechanical and physical changes with external stimuli such as pH, temperature, electric, thus they have widespread usage in controlled drug delivery systems that is one of the most important biomedical fields used in the treatment of diseases such as cancer, chronic pain, which require controlled drug release in the long run. In the light of this information, we produced gelatin-based electro-responsive hydrogels for controlled drug delivery. The obtained hydrogels were characterized by FT-IR and SEM analyses. For the release experiments, a model drug was loaded to the hydrogels and then release kinetics of drug from the gelatin-based hydrogel were investigated under the different voltage conditions. The obtained results showed that gelatin-based hydrogel could be a promising electro-responsive biomaterial for treatment of cancer diseases. Recent Publications: 1.
