Abstract: The objective of this study was to develop and characterize a biodegradable drug-loaded nerve guide for peripheral nerve regeneration. Sabeluzole, a nerve growth agent, was selected as model compound. Four biodegradable polymers were selected for this study: a copolymer of polylactic acid and polycaprolactone (PCL); a copolymer of polyglycolic acid and polycaprolactone PCL; a copolymer of PCL/polydioxanone (PDO) and PDO. Placebo and drug loaded nerve guides were obtained by melt compression and melt extrusion.
