Special Issue Information
Oral dosage forms are the gold standard for the management and/or treatment of chronic and debilitating disorders such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cancer, neurodegenerative and psychotropic diseases, and various infections. Patients vary in terms of age, swallowing ability, and dosage. A single dosage form or regular dosage forms may not be sufficient for all patient groups. Oral drug delivery technologies have evolved to include orodispersible tablets, gastro-retentive drug delivery, colonic drug delivery, and fixed-dose combination drug delivery. Therefore, the design of dosage forms for oral drug delivery is critical for optimizing therapeutic effects while reducing adverse effects.
The purpose of this special issue is to highlight and document the novel oral drug delivery system. For this special issue, we invite submissions on all aspects of dosage form design for oral drug delivery studies that highlight world-class research.
