Abstract: As the development and application of the fourth generation's drug dosage form, the oral colon-specific drug delivery system has the advantage of targeting orientation, increasing local drug concentration, acting on the lesion site directly, reducing drug dosage and side effect, etc.Aiming at the drug releasing mechanism, application and preparation technique, the research progress of this field is reviewed, so as to provide the theoretical basis and reference for the systematic research of the oral colon-specific drug delivery system.

Key words: colon-specific, drug delivery system, application, preparation
