At present, Pharmaceutical industry is focused on developing new drug delivery system which increases the therapeutic efficacy and reduces the side effects. In recent trends, the MDDS is especially fitting for pulsatile release and controlled release, as these formulations possess several advantages such as dose dumping and low risk. Because of its unique property, MDDS plays a major role in a solid dosage form. In recent, much emphasis is being laid on multi-unit dosage form, because the particle size is smaller in multi-unit dosage form which passes through the GI track easily. Continuously MDDS provide multiple chances for designing controlled release and delayed release oral formulation which helps for future pharmaceutical development.
