registered and approved in IBD related issues and the use of drug delivery system in the treatment of IBD. In
this article various patents were consolidated in areas such as IBD related issues and nano drug deliveries in
the treatment of IBD. The industrial concept and status of drug delivery system are also discussed briefly.
