Delayed Release



A type of modified-release dosage form. A descriptive term for a dosage form deliberately modified to delay release of the API for some period of time after initial administration. For example, release of the API is prevented in the gastric environment but promoted in the intestinal environment; in this sense, the term is synonymous with Enteric-Coated or Gastro-Resistant.
