Abstract

The development of controlled drug delivery systems is essential for side-effect-reduced therapy. Using stop flow lithography (SFL) and acid-degradable monomers, we synthesize pH-sensitive particles for targeted drug delivery. Depending on pH values, the particles exhibit differences in degradation times from minutes to hours. The degradation times of the particles can be also adjusted by controlling the synthesis conditions. To show the multi-modulated drug release, we further synthesize multi-patterned particles. The release of the beads in each compartment is programmed by designing the monomer compositions. Finally, we encapsulate proteins in the particles as a model drug and show their controlled release.
