    Very few physical or theoretical models have been developed to assist with product development for oral colonic drug delivery. The aim here is to develop a theoretical mathematical model to describe the geometry of the colon and the fluid flows within it. This is part of a project which aims to predict the distribution and residence time of dosage forms in the colon e.g. whether they will reach the mucosal layer of the colon wall.
