Oxime Cross-Linked Injectable Hydrogels for Catheter Delivery



Catheter delivery of therapeutic materials is important for developing minimally invasive treatment approaches. However, the majority of injectable materials gel rapidly upon mixing and/or heating to body temperature. The application of an oxime cross-linked hydrogel system is demonstrated. The system has a broad range of tunable gelation rates, is capable of injection through a catheter, and exhibits rapid gelation upon injection into tissue.
