Design tools are provided to assist in the development of drug-release devices that can control the time to establish a steady-state flux in addition to a desired delivery rate. In this contribution, the primary focus is placed on passive, heat-aided, and electrically assisted transport through planar membranes. Approximate analytical methods, that describe process dynamics, were applied to appropriate mathematical models to derive relationships between the system properties (e.g., diffusion… CONTINUE READING
