How Polymer Science is Changing the Functional Role of Capsules

New developments in polymer science are broadening the role that capsules play in drug delivery, formulation science and medical research. Today options exist to achieve immediate, delayed, controlled, site-specific or colon-targeted release. Specialized capusles can now play a functional role in improving bioavailability, meet the clinical needs for specific plasma time-course profiles, avoid site-specific degradation in the GI tract and improve drug efficacy for patients.
