A REVIEW ON FLOATING DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM
Pharmaceutical industries have received much interest in pharmaceutical research in the area of oral drug delivery more over on Gastro retentive drug delivery system that is Floating Drug Delivery System (FDDS). Oral delivery of medicine is far and away the foremost desirable route of drug delivery. This route has high patient acceptableness, primarily because of easy administration. The purpose of writing this review on floating drug delivery systems (FDDS) was to compile the recent literature with special focus on the principal mechanism of floatation to achieve gastric retention. The recent developments of FDDS together with the physiological and formulation variables moving viscous retention, approaches to style single-unit and multiple-unit floating systems, and their classification and formulation aspects square measure covered in detail. This review additionally summarizes the in vitro techniques and in vivo studies to judge the performance and application of floating systems, and applications of those systems.
Keywords: Floating drug delivery system, mechanism of floatation, formulation aspect.
