Abstract

A problem in controlled release pharmaceutical systems is formulated and studied. The device modeled is a polymer matrix containing an initially immobilized drug. The release of the drug is achieved by countercurrent diffusion through a penetrant solvent with the release rate being determined by the rate of diffusion of the solvent in the polymer. The mathematical theory yields a free boundary problem which is studied in various asymptotic regimes.
