Abstract:  The authors developed formulae in which matrix systems for a variety of drugs, especially natural bioidentical hormones, could be used successfully. This discussion covers slow-release capsules and their mechanism of action, hydrophilic matrix capsules and use of slow-release hormone preparations. Regarding the latter topic, the authors report that their own clinical observations using hormones have shown good patient response in a dose-related manner to all micronized hormones administered in slow-release capsules. However, more clinical testing of this dosage form would be helpful.
