Abstract

Controlled release of an anti-inflammatory drug from PEDOT nanotubes using electrical stimulation is demonstrated (see Figure and Inside Cover). The fabrication process includes electrospinning of a biodegradable polymer into which the drug has been incorporated, followed by electrochemical deposition of the conducting polymer around the drug-loaded electrospun nanoscale fibers.
