ABSTRACT:
Gastric emptying is a complex process and makes in vivo performance of the drug delivery systems uncertain. In order to avoid this variability, efforts have been made to increase the retention time of the drug-delivery systems for more than 12 hours. The floating or hydrodynamically controlled drug delivery systems are useful in such application. The present review addresses briefly about the floating drug delivery systems.
KEYWORDS:
Floating drug delivery systems, its classification and application.
