Purpose: The aim of this study was to prepare poly(D, L- lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) microspheres containing sodium fusidate ( SF) using a double emulsion solvent evaporation method with varying polymer: drug ratios (1: 1, 2.5: 1, 5: 1) and to evaluate its efficiency for the local treatment of chronic osteomyelitis.
