Physiologically active molecules, when incorporated into polymers through homo- or copolymerization, result in biomedical materials with applications based on their physico-chemical, mechanical and biochemical properties. The authors provide an overview of the Russian contributions to the field which include hemocompatible polymers, biospecific hemosorbants for the removal of toxins from the blood stream, and polymeric medications.
