This invention provides a method of preparing a polymeric delivery system for active ingredients. The delivery system is formed either by attaching the active ingredient to a linker through a hydrolyzable covalent bond, then forming a covalent bond between the linker and a portion of the subunits of a cross-linked polymer, or by attaching a linker to a portion of the subunits of a cross-linked polymer, then attaching the active ingredient to the polymer-linker combination through a hydrolyzable covalent bond. The invention also provides a delivery system comprising an active ingredient covalently bonded through a hydrolyzale covalent bond to a linker, which is in turn covalently bonded to a portion of subunits of a cross-linked polymer.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
