Material used in paints, adhesives can be tailored for drug delivery

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed a hydrolyzable polymer that can be used as a drug delivery material. The polyurea bonding material, which has been used in paint and adhesives in the past, could be tailored to degrade over a specific period of time, making it usable in drug delivery contexts.
