Enzymatic degradation of particles prepared from different ratios of amylose to amylopectin increased with the content of amylopectin. Drug release and enzymatic degradation of the studied polysaccharides can be controlled by the crosslinking density or enzyme concentration. The polysaccharide particles can be also used to temporary alter blood flow and improve tissue uptake of drugs when injected into the blood stream.
