ABSTRACTHydrogels are cross-linked hydrophilic polymer structures that can imbibe large quantities of water or biological fluids Hydrogels are one of the upcoming classes of polymer based controlled release drug delivery systems that embrace numerous biomedical and pharmaceutical applications Hydrogels the swellable polymeric materials have been widely investigated as the carrier for drug delivery systems Besides exhibiting swelling controlled drug release hydrogels also show stimuli responsive changes in their structural network and hence the drug release The present manuscript is concerned with the classification method of preparation application in drug delivery and FDA approved market products of hydrogel with the patent review on hydrogel composition and its manufacturing process It also highlights recent advances in hydrogel drug delivery that is stimuli responsive hydrogel and its patents This patent review is useful for the synthesis methods of hydrogel drug delivery and its applicationKEY WORDSBiodegradable Biocompatible In -Situ Injectable Thermosensitive Grafting Cross-linkingIn 1955 Professors Lim and Wichterle of Prague introduced the first hydrogel with potential biomedical application The main advantage of that was its stability under varying pH temperature and tonicity conditions12 In the 1980s hydrogels were modified for other applications such as in ophthalmology as contact lenses in surgery as absorbable sutures as well as in many other areas of clinical practice for the treatment of several diseases such as diabetes mellitus osteoporosis asthma heart diseases and distinctive type of cancer34 Later on toward the present a huge sum of efforts and studies has been devoted to research on hydrogel with respect to drug delivery and biomedical application because of their properties such as biocompatibility with tissue high water content and easy control of solute transport5 Now a day Hydrogel are obtained from new materials using advanced techniques to make them biodegradable biocompatible safe and non-toxic Furthermore hydrogels can be formulated in a variety of physical forms including slabs microparticles nanoparticles coatings and lms4 As a result final hydrogel product is used in different applications such as
