Mukesh Kumar*, Suryakant Verma, Vijay Kumar Sharma


The term “Controlled release‎ or sustained release” is known to have existed in the medical and pharmaceutical prose for several decades. It has been constantly used to explain a pharmaceutical dosage form formulated to retard the release of therapeutic agent such that its appearance in the systemic circulation is delayed and/or protracted and its plasma profile is sustained in duration. Presently pharmaceutical industry is focusing on growth of sustained release formulations due to its intrinsic boons. Sustained release dosage forms are designed to release a drug at a predetermined rate by maintaining a constant drug level for a specific period of time with minimum side effects. The basic motivation of sustained release drug delivery system optimizes the biopharmaceutical, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics property of a drug in such a way that its utility is maximized, side-effects are reduced and treat of the disease is finish.
