New Polymeric Biomaterials

Tech ID: 18836 / UC Case 2004-635-0

Technology Description

The invention is on new polymeric biomaterials. The new biomaterials were created by chemical synthesis with carbohydrates and amino acids as building blocks. The biopolymers have a specific alternating structure between carbohydrate and peptide units.

Applications

The new biomaterials can also be used for many other biomedical and biotechnology applications such as: implants, prosthesis, tissue engineering, drug delivery, sensors, substrates for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAS), materials for use in contact lenses, and implanted devices. One application of them is as gene delivery vectors for gene therapy.
