The researchers found that the primary composite end point of target lesion failure occurred in 4 and 6 percent of patients treated with biodegradable polymer
sirolimus-eluting stents and durable polymer everolimus-eluting stents, respectively (difference, −1.6 percentage points; rate ratio, 0.59; posterior probability of superiority, 0.986).
(2015) observed that the heat capturing effect of biodegradable polymer
film was as pronounced as that of PE film.

This transaction builds on our dominant IP position in the field of biodegradable polymers
delivery platform for RNAi therapeutics," said Mohammad Azab, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Intradigm.
Polylactide (PLA), a polyester obtained from the monomer lactide (LA), is an example of a biodegradable polymer
to receive much attention.
"I am very excited to lead this clinical program evaluating the new generation of drug eluting stents with biodegradable polymer
and drug specifically designed for local application," said Bernard Chevalier, M.D., Centre Cardiologique Nord, Paris, France, principal investigator of NOBORI 1.
Using an unique formulation of a PVAXX biodegradable polymer
, partnership engineers have designed cell phone cases and covers that, when deposited into compost, slowly break down and release flower seeds into the environment.
Firstly a special formulation of PVAXX Research and Development's biodegradable polymer
range, while secondly the engineers at the University of Warwick created a small transparent window in the case or cover in which they can embed a seed.
Some of the examples of applications are prosthetic spinal implants, artificial hybrid pancreas, vascular grafts and stents, porous tissue scaffold, cardiac assist devices, pacemaker leads, specialty balloons and probe catheters, surgical gloves, condoms, and biodegradable polymer
Under the terms of the agreement the companies would cooperate in developing new products for the treatment of chronic wounds and burns based on Artimplant's patented technology of biodegradable polymer
materials, Artimplant said.
The polymer microspheres, called porogens are made of a biodegradable polymer
that initially stabilizes the graft, but then can degrade gradually, leaving pores of the appropriate size for colonization by osteoblasts.
