This chapter highlights select gelatin-based carrier matrices which are seeing more frequent use as drug delivery systems. Gelatin gels, alone and in combination with other polymers, can act as carriers for the delivery of various bioactive molecules. Controlled release systems and their underlying mechanisms along with mathematical modeling are outlined to show the various means by which target compounds are released from gelatin-based systems. Biocompatibility and applications of gelatin-based carriers in the fields of medicine and biomedical research are discussed.
