Please note: The FDA does not approve materials. The FDA approves devices and drugs. To state that PLGA is an FDA approved material is incorrect. It should state that PLGA is used in numerous FDA approved devices/applications.
Degradation products of PLGA have no effects on lactose intolerant people. Lactose intolerance is due to bacteria metabolizing the lactose in the intestines and releasing CO2. PLGA degradation products are not cleared through the gut; also, the dose of PLGA in any drug product is too small to have an effect in an idividual even if it did cause lactose intolerance. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:09, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
