Abstract: In the course of the development of a new drug delivery concept, four thermosensitive copolymers of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAm), with phase transition temperature slightly higher than 37 degrees C, were synthesised and used as time-controlled drug delivery agents. For this purpose, compression-coated tablets coated with the thermosensitive copolymers and containing Na2SO4 were prepared and in vitro dissolution tests were performed at constant physiological temperature, the lag time before drug releas…
