Applications of Polymers in Medicine, Health and Biotechnology

In modern times, a new class of biocompatible polymers and therapeutic polymeric systems and materials are being researched and have shown good amount of attraction for areas in polymer science. Attention towards polymeric compounds that can be bioassimilated is increased, primarily in the field of time-limited therapeutic applications. Among all the new candidates for materials that can be used to implant within the body, only a handful exhibit all the necessary properties required for safe functioning within the human body. Many researchers are turning towards synthesizing novel artificial polymeric materials  or biopolymers, i.e polymers of non-natural origin that are composed of pro-metabolite building blocks which can be utilized as components of biomedical or pharmacological therapeutic systems.

The medical devices or implants composed of these polymers possess properties of non-toxicity, non-carcinogenecity and non-immunogenic. They also should have thermal mechanical biological properties such as easy to manipulate and sterilizable. The market for these materials is on a steady growth and hence, newer materials are researched every day.

Tissue engineering also utilizes polymers and biopolymers as scaffolds for the growth of organs and tissue for grafting purposes. The scaffolds are biocompatible and no other type of material is capable of supporting the tissue development. Therefore there is immense research being performed to develop these biomaterials.
