An oral redox-sensitive self-immolating prodrug strategy

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report a novel oral prodrug approach where a solubilizing polymer conjugated to the drug is designed to be released by the action of an exogenously administered agent in the intestine. A redox-sensitive self-immolating design was implemented, and the reconversion kinetics were studied for three reducible prodrugs.
