Hierarchical porous hydroxyapatite microsphere as drug delivery carrier

Author affiliations

Abstract

Hollow hydroxyapatite microspheres with a hierarchical porous structure have been fabricated hydrothermally with the aid of citrate ions as a regulating agent. A possible formation mechanism was proposed. The high drug-loading capability and superior sustained release properties make it a promising carrier for drug delivery system.
