Porous starch and its application in drug delivery systems
Polymers in Medicine
In recent years, starch has become a new potential biomaterial for pharmaceutical applications. This biopolymer has unique physicochemical and functional characteristics, as well as various advantages such as low price, relative ease of isolation in pure form from the plant source, non-toxicity, biodegradability, good biocompatibility, and interaction with living cells. Starch is currently used in pharmacy as a binder, disintegrating agent, film-forming material, raw material for production ofdoi:10.17219/pim/99799 fatcat:djl5zjorhvcujo3o5xg6m7pm3m
