Figure 9: Representation of the in vivo CHSg microsphere degradation mechanism. Collage of representative microarticles found in the cryosections for different time points: (a) 2 hours, (b) 6 hours, (c) 12 hours, and (d) 24 hours. Relative particle amount in the images is related to the real particle concentration found in the tissue sections.
