Poly(glycerol sebacate) as an Elastomeric Coating for Biomedical Textiles Show: TERMINS-AM 2014
Date: 12/15/2014

Biomedical textiles are a significant component to the medical device industry; however compliance mismatch between the textile and tissue is a growing concern. Poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) has gained significant attention in regenerative medicine due to its elastomeric properties and successful use with multiple applications. PGS can be incorporated as a coating to improve the mechanical properties of the textile and potentially promote the healing process. Download

Webinar: Anatomy of a Next-Generation Bioresorbable Coating for Medical Devices A bioresorbable coating should enhance the performance of a medical device without adversely interacting with the body’s immune system. The application of Regenerez™, a next-generation bioresorbable elastomer made with poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS), in a coating formulation has the potential to improve biocompatibility by promoting tissue in-growth, enabling controlled drug release and solving compliance mismatch issues with bodily tissue.

Rheology of poly(glycerol sebacate) Show: Society for Biomaterials 2014
Date: 04/16/2014

Poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) has garnered much attention over the past 10 years in the area of regenerative medicine. The majority of studies have focused on the chemical interactions of the material with tissue and cells; (i.e., chemical compliance). Based on the current analysis of PGS, we hypothesize that the physical properties of PGS will be temperature dependent, which will have implications in development for future medical applications.

Commercialization of a New Biomaterial Show: Hilton Head Regenerative Medicine Workshop
Date: 03/26/2014

In the course of commercializing a new biomaterial, the scalability of the process must be considered in addition to the technical requirements of the material. In the last 10+ years, poly(glycerol sebacate) (PGS) has attracted significant attention in the world of biomaterials and regenerative medicine due to its physical and cell-friendly properties.
