A newly granted patent (Publication Number: US11925712B2) discloses a fully implantable delivery device designed for the delivery of bioactive agents to a subject. The device features a wall with a surface containing a unique combination of nanostructures and microstructures arranged in a fractal dimension greater than about 1. These structures are crucial for the controlled release of bioactive agents within specific dimensions and spacing parameters, ensuring effective delivery to the subject.

Furthermore, the implantable delivery device includes a reservoir for containing the bioactive agent and is configured to interact with the surrounding tissue near the implantation site. The device's surface characteristics, including the presence of nanostructures with specific dimensions and spacing, play a significant role in determining the effectiveness of the delivery process. With features like an effective shear modulus range and aspect ratios for the nanostructures and microstructures, this patented device showcases a novel approach to targeted and controlled delivery of bioactive agents within the subject's body, promising advancements in the field of implantable drug delivery systems.
