Global Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) market is segmented on the basis of product type, application, and geography. Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) is a single base polymer for controlled release of drugs and medical implant materials. PLGA is both - biocompatible and biodegradable, and while both monomers occur naturally it has minimal toxicity. Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) is naturally amorphous (not crystalline).
PLGA is a synthetic copolymer of lactic acid and glycolic acid is approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for drug delivery owing to its drug biocompatibility, biodegradability, suitable biodegradation kinetic and mechanical properties, and ease of processing. In the past few years, Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) has been among the most attractive polymeric candidates used to fabricate devices for tissue engineering and drug delivery applications.
For commercial use and in research, PLGA has been widely studied for the development of devices for controlled delivery of small molecule drugs, proteins, and the other macromolecules. Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) is synthesized by direct polycondensation of lactic acid and glycolic acid; though the most efficient route to obtain high-molecular weight (MW) copolymers is the ring opening polymerization of gycolide and lactide. Common catalysts used in the preparation of this copolymer include tin (II) 2-ethylhexanoate, tin (II) alkoxides or aluminum isopropoxide.
The forms of Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) are usually identified by the monomers ratio which is most frequently used in the nanotechnology, identifies a copolymer whose composition is 50% of lactic acid and 50% of glycolic acid. Physical features of Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) are size, morphology, size distribution, and potential can be synthesized by controlling the parameters specific to the synthesis method.
Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) is prepared by the direct polycondensation of lactic and glycolic acid. The polycondensation reactions are effected in solution or in the solid/ melt state. Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) is a biodegradable polymer used in the medical field. In particular Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) materials are developed for the dental field in the form of films, scaffolds, membranes, microparticles or nanoparticles. Biodegradability, biocompatibility, flexibility and minimal side effects are the main advantages when using this polymer for biomedical applications.
PLGA is used in the sub-dental fields like periodontology, endodontics, dental caries, and dental implants or dental surgery. Based on product type, Poly Lactic-Co-Glycolic Acid (PLGA) market is classified as PLGA 50:50, PLGA 65:35, PLGA 75:25, PLGA 85:15, drug delivery, tissue engineering scaffolds, and so on.
