Antimicrobial bioadhesive polymer complexes for the oral cavity

  • Gemma Keegan

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


Due to the problems associated with local antimicrobial delivery to the oral cavity, such as poor retention times, the use ofbioadhesive polymers within oral healthcare products may significantly improve therapeutic efficacy. In the current study, bioadhesive antimicrobial-polymer complexes were investigated as a formulation strategy to improve the substantivity of antimicrobial compounds within the oral cavity.
