Pharmaceutical Applications of Polymers for Drug Delivery
The review focuses on the use of pharmaceutical polymers for controlled drug delivery applications. Examples of pharmaceutical polymers and the principles of controlled drug delivery are outlined and applications of polymers for controlled drug delivery are described.
The field of controlled drug delivery is vast therefore this review aims to provide an overview of the applications of pharmaceutical polymers. The reader will be directed where necessary to appropriate textbooks and specialised reviews. Although polymers are used extensively as pharmaceutical packaging, this review is concerned with the use of polymers in the formulation of dosage forms.
This review will be of interest to anyone who has an interest in the pharmaceutical use of polymers, whether as a researcher or as a manufacturer of medical devices.
The review is accompanied by approximately 250 abstracts compiled from the Polymer Library, to facilitate further reading on this subject. A subject and a company index are also included.
