Polymers for Controlled Drug Delivery addresses the challenges of designing macromolecules that deliver therapeutic agents that function safely and in concert with living organisms. The book primarily discusses classes of polymers and polymeric vehicles, including particulates, such as . Polymers have played an integral role in the advancement of drug delivery technology by providing controlled release of therapeutic agents in constant doses over long periods, cyclic dosage, and tunable release of both hydrophilic and hydrophobic by: Figure 1. Drug levels in the blood with (a) traditional drug dosing and (b) controlled-delivery dosing. In recent years, controlled drug delivery formulations and the polymers used in these systems have become much more sophisticated, with the ability to do more than simply extend the effective release period for a particular drug. Polymers for Controlled Drug Delivery addresses the challenges of designing macromolecules that deliver therapeutic agents that function safely and in concert with living organisms. The book primarily discusses classes of polymers and polymeric vehicles, including particulates, such as latexes, coacervates, ion-exchange resins, and liposomes Cited by:

Polymers are being used extensively in drug delivery due to their surface and bulk properties. They are being used in drug formulations and in drug delivery devices. These drug delivery devic-es may be in the form of implants for controlled drug delivery. Polymers used in colloidal drugFile Size: 1MB. The aim of this book is to compile major drug delivery systems and offer a source of information for all those working in pharmaceutical academia as well as industry. The book is made available free of charge to all who are interested in the subject for dissemination of knowledge.
