Initial demonstration builds drug delivery system that protects gut microbiome from antibiotics

Biomedical engineers at Duke University have demonstrated that a class of interwoven composite materials called semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (sIPNs) can be produced by living cells. The approach could make these versatile materials more biologically compatible for biomedical applications such as delayed drug delivery systems. The research appears online June 8 …
