Nearly 4000 years ago, the Egyptians used linen, a natural polymeric material, for suturing wounds. About 600 B.C., the Indians used other forms of natural polymers such as cotton, horse hair, and leather in repairing wounds. Wound closure procedures using silk sutures, based mostly on polypeptides, are likely to have been practiced during the second century. Surgical application of natural polymers continued to represent the major use of polymers until the twentieth century. Not too long after the development of several major synthetic polymers, their use in biomedical applications has attracted the attention of many re searchers and clinicians. Over the past few years, interest in the biomedical applications of polymers has grown considerably. This has been the result of the inevitable collaborative efforts of in novative materials scientists, engineers and clinicians. The es tablishment of the Society for Biomaterials, in our opinion, cata lyzed the growing interest in the use of polymers for biomedical application. In a major effort to bring team players even closer, a five-day symposium on "Polymers as Biomaterials" was held in Seattle, Washing ton, in March, 1983 as part of the national meeting of the American Chemical Society. The symposium was designed to provide a forum for communicating technical and clinical data to colleagues with a broad spectrum of interest in the biomedical applications of polymers.

This book approaches the subject from a mechanistic perspective that pitches the language at a level that is understandable to those entering the field and who are not familiar with its common phrases or complex terms. It provides a simple encapsulation of concepts and expands on them. In each chapter the basic concept is explained as simply and clearly as possible without a great deal of detail, then in subsequent sections additional material, exceptions to the general rule, examples, etc., is introduced and built up. Such material was generously supplemented with diagrams; conceptually elegant line diagrams in two or three colors. The artwork was well thought out and able to condense the scientific principles into a novel and visually exciting form. The diagrams encourage browsing or draw the reader to salient points. In addition, the technique of highlighting key concepts in a separate box is used throughout each chapter.

This symposium provided a setting in which scientists could gather to discuss recent advances and state-of-the-art technology in drug delivery. Speakers included pharmaceutical scientists, polymer chemists, bioengineers, pharmacologists and physicians who were considered to be leaders in the field of research and development of drug delivery systems. Perspectives on drug delivery systems and development have changed markedly since the first symposium on this subject was held. Focus on biological mechanisms and interactions important to drug delivery systems has increased. This changing emphasis is reflected in the five major topics discussed: transport mechanisms across membranes, proteins and macromolecular drug delivery, new developments in drug delivery, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics in controlled drug delivery, and targeting and site-specific delivery. The breadth of topics covered illustrates the interdisciplinary and multifaceted nature of drug delivery systems.
