Part of the Polymer Science and Technology book series (POLS, volume 21)


The chemical combination of pharmacologically active compounds with polymers is currently receiving considerable attention. Objectives are to improve the duration of activity, to obtain a more cell-specific uptake or to reduce the toxicity of the parent drug1,2,3 Macromolecular derivatives of a drug can be obtained either by converting the drug into a reactive derivative that can be polymerized or by binding the drug onto an existing natural or synthetic polymer.
