Your valuable research in Expert Opinion on Drug Delivery

About the special issue

Controlled release delivery systems aim to release the therapeutic compound at a predetermined rate, achieving a constant zero-order drug release over an extended period of time. This means less fluctuation in drug blood levels and reduced dosing frequency, which is of great benefit to patients. Due to the considerable therapeutic benefits of controlled release drug delivery, research in this area has been rapidly evolving!

Therefore, Expert Opinion on Drug Delivery is excited to announce a special issue on “Controlled release drug delivery: from bench to bedside” which will be published in the summer of 2022. With contributions from world-class key opinion leaders across academia and industry, the issue will cover all aspects of controlled release drug delivery. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Controlled drug-delivery systems in different indications
• Novel delivery technologies, nanocarriers, vehicles, devices, and formulations
• Different modes of entry into the body
• Various release mechanisms

The issue welcomes authors to submit relevant editorials, reviews, technology evaluations and original research.
