Many drug regimes must be carefully dosed as they are either too complicated to be self –administered or face low compliance by the patients themselves. This gives rise to controlled-release drug delivery devices (DDD). New techniques in solid freeform fabrication (SFF) have prompted research in methods of manufacturing and controlling porosity.
