This volume provides an interdisciplinary analysis of current biological applications of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG). It includes a wide array of topics useful to materials scientists, organic chemists, biochemists, and bioengineers interested in drug delivery systems, pharmaceuticals andother biomaterials. The applications discussed include PEG-modified proteins, liposomes, drugs, surfaces of materials, and hydrogels. The volume also includes a review of PEG-oligonucleotides and a concise summary of the toxicology of PEG and its derivatives.
