RiveraMs. Roselin RosarioPolymer Drugs Novel Biodegradable Drug Delivery SystemRoselyn Rosario a student graduated from UPR of Cayey and she continues her studies inthe states gave us a wonderful seminar of polymer drugs. Currently in her lab they aretrying to find what results may it bring by uniting polymers with morphine. Morphine isone of the drugs most used in medicine especially as a relieve painkiller after a mayorsurgery. It is also one of the most addictive drugs that exist currently as a medicine. Ms.Rosario shared with us the success that they have had by uniting polymers with othermedical drugs. For example, they modified a stent that is used for normalizing the artery inyour heart, by making it degrade through time. They united polymers and morphine and itresulted positive for patient care. The objective was to reduce the tendency, addictiveness,period of re doses of the morphine. When tested it gave them positive results in every areathey were focusing on. These results are extremely great for the medical communitybecause of the positive results it may bring to patients. Although there is still much to studyand much to do referring to the morphine it’s a positive start for this research.
