Summary : Nowadays, advanced controlled drug delivery systems have been attracted the pharmaceutical research studies. As several experiments have to be done for pharmaceutical approaches, mathematical modeling becomes important. Mathematical modeling of drug release provides better understanding of controlled drug delivery system and would help to optimize the system without huge number of expensive experiments. Diffusion is the predominant transport phenomena of the drug delivery systems. Therefore, optimizing the parameters related to diffusional mass transport, such as diffusion coefficient and porosity, would be the essential key to get better controlled drug release profile. One of the challenges of controlled drug delivery systems is the initial burst, which decreases the effective lifetime of drug and would cause toxicity. This challenge has been solved by using a coating layer to control the drug release. Regarding to this issue, promising modeling results have been shown in this study and all the modeling data have been fitted with available experimental set of data. The mathematical modeling results in a partial differential equation. The analytical solution for the simplified equation is provided in this study. However, the boundary condition for the outer layer is complicated and the solution for the real problem would be available by using numerical methods. Finite difference method provided the numerical solution to the real problem and MATLAB software facilitate the process of solving the equation numerically.

Summary : This chapter focuses on the eye, one of the most important organs of humans. Current data on pathophysiology of the human eye are presented in direct correlation with a range of therapeutic products, with a well-known and widely used material, namely chitosan. Applications of chitosan biopolymer are described in the development of innovative, modern, therapeutic devices and solutions. Thus, chitosan is a good excipient either for classic drop-type ocular systems, as well as for complex drug systems such as nanostructures (nanoparticles, nanomicelles and nanosuspensions), liposomes, microemulsions, microspheres, in situ hydrogels and inserts or implants. A number of disadvantages for ocular administration of the drugs are thus overcome.

Summary : Functional advanced biopolymers have received far less attention than renewable biomass (cellulose, rubber, etc.) used for energy production. Among the most advanced biopolymers known is chitosan. The term chitosan refers to a family of polysaccharides obtained by partial de-N-acetylation from chitin, one of the most abundant renewable resources in the biosphere. Chitosan has been firmly established as having unique material properties as well as biological activities. Either in its native form or as a chemical derivative, chitosan is amenable to being processed—typically under mild conditions—into soft materials such as hydrogels, colloidal nanoparticles, or nanofibers. Given its multiple biological properties, including biodegradability, antimicrobial effects, gene transfectability, and metal adsorption—to name but a few—chitosan is regarded as a widely versatile building block in various sectors (e.g., agriculture, food, cosmetics, pharmacy) and for various applications (medical devices, metal adsorption, catalysis, etc.). This Special Issue presents an updated account addressing some of the major applications, including also chemical and enzymatic modifications of oligos and polymers. A better understanding of the properties that underpin the use of chitin and chitosan in different fields is key for boosting their more extensive industrial utilization, as well as to aid regulatory agencies in establishing specifications, guidelines, and standards for the different types of products and applications.
