Introduction: The subject of polymeric drugs has recently achieved wide attention and is discussed among scientists interested in macromolecular science and in biological and pharmaceutical disciplines. The general concept is also penetrating into regulatory authorities responsible for administering the areas of food and drug related subjects. We are limiting our discussion on polymeric drugs to materials where the polymer consists entirely of synthetic polymers with functional groups of known or potential biological activity. Such drugs are defined to include any agent which, upon introduction into a living system, causes a physiological response. Not only curative but also prophylactic agents are included in this definition.
