PLGA from PolySciTech used in development of cancer immunotherapy platform
Immunotherapy is a process by which the immune system is triggered to attack the cancer cells directly. Researchers at Sungkyunkwan University used PLGA from PolySciTech to create microparticles encapsulated with tumor lysate as a means to initiate an immune response against cancer. This research holds promise to improve immunotherapy against cancer. Read more: Lee, Jae Ah, Jung Min Shin, Seok Ho Song, Chan Ho Kim, Soyoung Son, Sol Shin, and Jae Hyung Park.

PLGA-PEG-PLGA Thermogel from PolySciTech used in study to understand neointimal hyperplasia.
Neointimal hyperplasia is a process by which injured vessels will initiate the in-growth of tissue. This process is particularly problematic during stenosis as the growing tissue blocks the interior of the stent and re-closes the vessel. Recently, researchers from the University of Virginia and The Ohio State University used PLGA-PEG-PLGA (AK012) from PolySciTech to deliver an EZH1/2 inhibitor (UNC1999) as a way to model healing with this pathway blocked off. This understanding of the vessel healing process can assist with designing more effective means of stenosis.  Read more: Zhang, Mengxue, Go Urabe, Hatice Gulcin Ozer, Xiujie Xie, Amy Webb, Takuro Shirasu, Jing Li et al.
