Gel-forming starch phosphates with a content of acidic phosphate groups ranging from 2.1 to 3.8 mmol/g were obtained in a phosphoric acid-urea system. The rates of starch phosphate degradation in buffer solution in the absence of amylase and in the presence of this enzyme were investigated in vitro. Starch phosphate gels were shown to be prone to enzymatic degradation. However, the rate of biodegradation decreased gradually as the content of phosphate groups increased. The use of microgels with average particle sizes in the range of 7.8–60.1 μm for the production of controlled-release preparations of interferon-alpha 2b has been demonstrated to be possible in principle.
