Abstract:The Fifth European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery was held in Noordwijk aan Zee, The Netherlands, from April 1–3, 1998. With the active participation of our Scientific Advisory Board we were able to prepare a programme where leading scientists from European and non-European countries presented their latest results on drug delivery systems. Furthermore, a poster session was organised to allow researchers to present and discuss their results in this rapidly developing and exciting area. Speakers at the symposium included pharmaceutical scientists, polymer scientists, bioengineers, biochemists and pharmacologists. The topics of the symposium were selected to provide a high level multidisciplinary programme, where participants with different backgrounds had an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the drug delivery area.

These topics were: novel macromolecular and supra-molecular materials for drug delivery; novel drug delivery systems; pharmaco-economics of therapies involving controlled release dosage forms; new therapeutic approaches based on controlled drug delivery.

The proceedings of the Fifth European Symposium on Controlled Drug Delivery contains 22 papers, which were generated from the presentation at the symposium and extended abstracts of posters, which were presented.
