Poly(dl-lactide-co-glycolide)/porous silicon (PLGA/pSi) composite microspheres are synthesized by a solid-in-oil-in-water (S/O/W) emulsion method. These composite microspheres can exhibit sustained protein release, preserve protein bioactivity, stimulate mineralization, neutralize the acidic pH due to the PLGA degradation by-products, and avoid uptake by cells. These microspheres are developed for the long-term controlled delivery of biomolecules for orthopedic tissue engineering applications.
