In brief: Controlled release

"quote from wikipedia"oros is a controlled release oral drug delivery system in the form of a tablet.
The tablet has a rigid water permeable jacket with one or more laser drilled small holes. As the tablets passes through the body, the osmotic pressure of water entering the tablet pushes the active drug throught the opening in the tablet. Review the concept of osmosis to understand more...

It's a new innovative sysem of delivery and release of drug from its main component (tablet) - the purpose is to release the drug in small steady amount so there are no peaks and valleys of drug level in the blood, lessening its side effects and maintaining a steady state.
