Osteomyelitis continues to be a severe problem worldwide, causing plenty of hospital admissions and entailing vast expenses. previously, we developed a low-cost polymethyl-methacrylate (pmmA)-sorbitol based capsule system for local long-term drug delivery. in the present study we aimed to test the in vitro release of clindamycin capsules by high performance liquid chromatography. By the end of the clinically relevant period (42 days), the capsules released 70-100% of their load. furthermore, the release kinetics suggested that an effective antimicrobial concentration may be maintained within the target area. Our findings indicate that these newly developed capsules may be a versatile device for local clindamycin delivery by providing efficient release and reducing financial burdens.
