Controlled drug delivery systems have been studied for over 20 years, with the emphasis on the systematic administration of drugs for prolonged action. One of the fastest growing fields in controlled drug delivery, with excellent prospects for clinical use, is polymeric implants for site-specific drug therapy. An international team of experts contribute to this volume, reviewing the design, development and applications of such devices.
