Polymer-based drug delivery systems: A review study

Author(s):

Albadri Abdel-Majid Alshorman

Abstract:

Polymer-based drug delivery systems (DDS) have revolutionized the field of medical therapeutics by enabling precise control over the release and targeting of drugs. This review examines the various types of polymers used in DDS, including both natural and synthetic variants, and explores their mechanisms of action, advantages, and recent advancements. Key innovations such as stimuli-responsive polymers, biodegradable systems, and conductive polymers are highlighted for their significant contributions to enhancing drug efficacy and reducing side effects. The applications of polymer-based DDS in gene and cancer therapy are also discussed, demonstrating their potential to improve treatment outcomes. Overall, this review underscores the importance of polymeric carriers in the development of next-generation drug delivery technologies.
