BACKGROUND: In Recent years, oral film technology is aimed by the research groups. Oral film technology (OFT) has gained much attention among all the oral drug delivery systems. Fast dissolving film, fast disintegrating film and orodispersible film are some alternative words for this dosage form. Without a need of liquid for administration this dosage form dissolves in the mouth. Typically, fast dissolving film dissolves from 1 to 30 seconds. OBJECTIVE: At the root of this originality, many researchers patented their work on the aspect of orodispersible films using different drugs, polymers, excipients and employing methods of preparation...

Drugs having absorption window in the stomach or upper small intestine has restricted bioavailability with conventional dosage forms. The gastric residence time of these dosage forms is usually short and they do not show drug release for prolonged period of time. To avoid these problems and to enhance the bioavailability and gastric retention time of these drugs, controlled drug delivery systems with prolonged gastric retention time are currently being developed. This review highlights the various pharmaceutical approaches for gastroretention such as floating drug delivery systems, mucoadhesive systems, high density systems, expandable and swelling systems, superporous hydrogels systems, magnetic systems, ion exchange resin system and recent patents filed or granted for these approaches...

AIMS AND BACKGROUND: The design and development of an effective medicine are however often faced with a number of challenges. One of them is the close relationship of drug's bioavailability with solubility, dissolution rate and permeability. The use of curcumin's (CUR) therapeutic potential is limited by its poor water solubility and low chemical stability. The purpose was to evaluate the effect of polymer and solid dispersion (SD) preparation techniques to enhance the aqueous solubility, dissolution rate and stability of the CUR...

PURPOSE- The solubility of drug is affected by various excipients presents in formulation. In case of tablets the role of binders is very important for solubility of dosage form as well as drug. Thus in following study an attempt is made to improve the solubility and dissolution rate of a drug by use of natural excipients. The starch was extracted from the Pear fruits and used as a binder in different concentrations, in famotidine tablets and evaluate them. There are some recent patents on modified starch (WO2011002730A1), directly compressed starch (US6455069B1), pre-compacted starches (US4072535A), which helped in my study...
