With the passage of time, hydrogels have been revolutionized to become one of the promising drug delivery carriers for controlled drug delivery
Floating drug delivery systems: An approach to oral controlled drug delivery
via gastric retention.
Known as the father of controlled drug delivery
and tissue engineering, Professor Langer has been cited as "one of history's most prolific inventors in medicine".

Session 9 on Polymers in Drug Delivery will include the following presentations: "Synthesis of polymeric biocompatible materials for controlled drug delivery
by means of supercritical technology," Juan Francisco Rodriguez, Antonio de Lucas, Ignacio Gracia and Eng Rosario Mazarro, University of Castilla-La Mancha, Spain; and "Triggered release of therapeutics from medical polymers," Colin McCoy, Queen's University Belfast, Northern Ireland.
Birmingham, AL; 205-917-2220), a company engaged in the development of controlled drug delivery
technologies, announced that is has entered into a collaboration with AstraZeneca (Wilmington, DE) to investigate the feasibility of an injectable sustained release formulation of an undisclosed drug using Southern BioSystems' SABER drug delivery system.
The biodegradable nature of the hydrogels also allows for the complete release of medication into the body when they are used for controlled drug delivery
is the leader in controlled drug delivery
systems and should continue to benefit from a rising stream of royalties from licensees, as well as increasing sales of its own proprietary drugs.
There is a need for the development of reliable coatings that allow for controlled drug delivery
at a lower dose and minimal dislodgement of the coating into the distal vessel.
We hypothesize that anisotropic lipid coatings can produce concentration-independent reduced burst release and prolonged controlled drug delivery
from reservoir to sink.
The contributors compare new capabilities introduced by nanotechnology to traditional methods of release, target and controlled drug delivery
in the body.
Two major avenues to controlled drug delivery
are being pursued today.
