Functional nanoporous membranes for drug delivery

Author affiliations


This feature article reviews controlled drug release based on nanoporous membranes for potential medical applications. First, we describe the preparations of nanoporous membranes by top-down and bottom-up methods, and the combination of the two. Then, sustained long-term drug delivery and stimuli-responsive drug delivery by utilizing the nanoporous membranes are explained. The drug delivery system using nanoporous membranes can be used for a new therapy of various diseases through patient-customized medical treatment.
