Drug release is a crucial process in treatment. Conventional drug administration requires patient’s compliance and has the risk of overdosing. In order to control drug release, several potential materials are develo0ped. In this paper, we focus on hydrogel material and simulate drug release process in MATLAB. We optimize the parameter for a seven-day release of a drug. The results show that the diffusion coefficient at approximately 4.00E−11 could ensure medicine to diffuse around 7 days and maintain its effects.
