AK46 P(DL)La-PEG-P(DL)La thermogel
Movie shows Polyvivo 20% w/v AK46 (P(DL)La-PEG-P(DL)La) in distilled water as it is agitated at various temperatures ranging from refrigerated to room temperature to 37C. Due to more hydrophobic lactide blocks as opposed to mixed lactide/glycolide blocks present in AK12 and AK24 this material will have a slower degradation profile.
