Poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) is the most often used synthetic polymer within the field of bone regeneration owing to its biocompatibility and biodegradability. As a consequence, a large number of medical devices comprising PLGA have been approved for clinical use in humans by the American Food and Drug Administration. As compared to the homopolymers of lactic acid poly(lactic acid) and poly(glycolic acid), the co-polymer PLGA is much more versatile with respect to the control over degradation rate. As a material for bone regeneration, the use of PLGA has been extensively studied for application include as either scaffolds, coatings, fibers or micro- and nanospheres to meet various clinical requirements.
