Author(s): Tao Wu, Weisan Pan, Jimin Chen, Ruhua Zhang

Pharmaceutical polymeric controlled-release membranes have caught many researchers' attention because of the rapid development of controlled-release preparations. Several researchers investigated the controlled-release polymeric membranes from various points of view. The present article reviews the progress in the studies of membrane-forming materials, methods of preparation and mechanical properties of the controlled-release membranes. The main purpose of this review is to provide foundations for drug release mechanism investigation and formulation design of membrane controlled release formulations.
