Abstract: Cytomegalovirus (CMV) retinitis is the most common ocular infection in patients with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), occurring in 15%-40% of AIDS patients. It will cause blindness in 3 to 6 months if left untreated. The available mode of treatments ranges from intravenous to implants for localised drug delivery. However, several problems have been associated with these treatments and a sustained-release biodegradable device is needed to decrease these risks and produce a longer therapeutic effect.
