Controlled Release: Benefits vs. Risks

  • Donald R. Cowsar


During the decade of the 1970s, new controlled-release technology continued to emerge from research laboratories around the world. A few controlled-release formulations and devices have already reached the market place, and many others are currently undergoing premarketing trials. One might say that controlled release has transgressed from its infancy through its childhood, and it is rapidly maturing to occupy a vital position in many important industries. The future of controlled release appears bright indeed.
