  • Patent number: 10307373
    Abstract: Provided is a drug delivery system for control of initial burst of a drug. More particularly, there are provided a drug delivery formulation including: a granule containing a biodegradable polymer and a drug; and a temperature-sensitive hydrogel, and a method for preparing the same. The presently disclosed drug delivery formulation can be prepared via a relatively simple process and allows a drug to be released slowly at a constant rate without initial burst and thus maintains a constant blood level of the drug for a long period of time. Consequently, it is capable of preventing the initial burst of the existing injection-type drug delivery formulations and slow-release granules and providing a desired release profile, including sustained release with time.
