Abstract

The encapsulation of rhBMP-2 in polymeric microspheres, as well as its biologic activity upon release were investigated. It was observed that rhBMP-2 can be encapsulated in poly(lactic/glycolic acid) (PLGA) microspheres and that the protein remains active after release from the microspheres.
