Silk biomaterials represent a novel, customizable platform for focal antibiotic delivery with advantageous properties including biocompatibility, tunable biodegradation rate, stabilizing effects, water-based processing, and diverse material formats. Injectable and implantable antibiotic-releasing silk biomaterials (including hydrogels, microspheres, films, nanofilm coatings, and antibiotic-loaded fibers) repress local bacteria growth in vitro and in vivo.
