dc.description.abstractThe effect of the chemical nature of the drug on matrix degradation and drug release behavior of degradable polymers was studied, using lidocaine as a model drug in base and salt forms. As matrices, a range of lactide/glycolide based polymers was studied, representing variation in composition, crystallinity and molecular weight. We showed in this study that the drug in the base form has a substantial effect on the release characteristics, through an accelerating effect on matrix degradation. Study of drug release from PdlLGA showed that lidocaine salt followed a triphasic release pattern, in contrast to the biphasic release of the lidocaine.en
